MEET REPORT by Walter Siegenthaler

Earlier in the week the weather looked questionable, but Saturday morning before dawn, the rain stopped and by noon we had sunshine and temperatures in the 60s. It turned out to be a great day to orienteer. I’m not sure if it was the questionable weather that kept a good number of the registered participants away – we had about 20 no-shows.

This year I took a different approach to design the advanced courses. In the past I designed the Red course first and then just cut off a few controls to make the Green and the Brown courses the proper length. I got some comments (complaints) from the older folks that the Brown courses were too physical for them. So, this year I designed the Brown course first with the older folks in mind and then added more controls to generate the Green and Red courses. So, this year I got a compliment about having a correct Brown course. Lesson learned.

A big thank you to Valerie Vernet; my wife Lissa for handling the COK side of the registration/timing; and to Master Sergeant John Davis from Crest High School for handling the JROTC side. It allowed me as meet director to talk to some of the participants.

We also got great help from Jess Greer, Kris De Berry, Sue Ann Decker, Slava Klemenko and Dan Davis to pick up controls. Thank you all for your help, we got everything wrapped up by 4:15!
