Oregon Ridge Park

The weather was fantastic for being outside and it was great day for orienteering, as evidenced by the more than 220 participants that showed up for the event. It is unclear exactly how many course starts there were for the day because an number of runners completed more than one course, and the sign-in sheets don't always show the total number in a family group. Check the results to see how many competitors starts there were for each course. To make the event a little more challenging than usual, course setter Francis Hogle decided to throw an interesting twist into the meet by eliminating all of the unpaved trails from the advanced course maps. There were some grumblings about this last minute shift, but most participants welcomed the training opportunity it afforded.

Thanks to all of the steadfast volunteers who helped to make the day go smoothly, for the hundreds of registrants, including: Dwight & Kirsten Johnson, Frank Sigwart, Mike Newman, Mickey Dixon, Cecilia Landers, Greg Lennon, and Amy Louden for sharing her delicious homemade cookies with the volunteers. Special thanks to Heidi Onkst for manning the e-punch registration station single handedly through the entire crush of the registration period. Thanks to Jan Merka, who relieved Heidi late in the day, so she could go do a course herself. And our youngest helper – 9 year old Gabriel Ewanchiw – lent a hand as well. Heidi also had to cope with a temperamental printer that kept shutting down and refusing to print unless it was shut down and restarted repeatedly. Our apologies to those runners who were not able to get their results due to the printer malfunction, please check the results page.

Thanks also to Eddie Bergeron, Randy Hall, Scott Pleban and Lisa Beck for collecting controls and to Heidi & Dave Onkst and Mike Newman for sticking around to help with the cleanup and packing of equipment. Also many thanks to Valerie Meyer and Greg Lennon for printing and delivering the maps.

We welcome the new members who joined the club on the day of the event and we thank the several renewing members who paid their dues. Naturally, we are all indebted to Francis for devoting the time necessary to design and set the seven courses. We also appreciate the Baltimore County Parks Department for allowing the club to stage an event at Oregon Ridge. The open woodlands at Oregon Ridge and the wonderful Nature Center make this an especially nice location for Orienteering.
