Lake Accotink Park

The first event of QOC's 2010-2011 orienteering season was on a perfect warm 80 degree & dry day with the Redskins playing late. With an AR race scheduled earlier close by, I was happily surprised with the turn out. It was more than twice that of any other National Orienteering Day event QOC has held at this venue. However I did have wonderful volunteers - Mike and Cindy Ford and Marit Davis doing registration; Heidi Onkst and Valerie Meyer with e-punching, Michael Bianchetta at the start, our ex-co-presidents Kathleen and Greg Lennon with too many jobs to list and our president Jon Torrance along with Greg for picking up all the controls, and Charles Carrick filling in as needed. Thanks to all!

The design was a Score-o. However, you could choose to visit controls 101 to 108 in the manner of a traditional "visit the controls in order" beginner course, control 111 to 119 as an intermediate course and controls 121 to 130 as an advanced course, all without the 60min Score-O time limit. It probably would have worked better if we had each of the intermediate and advanced courses on their own maps instead of using the Score-O map but everyone seemed to have a good time.

Although I have been both a meet director and course setter for 35 years, I still learned a couple of things: Green ribbons hung a month ago to indicate where to hang the actual controls were almost impossible to find later, and, don't volunteer to run an event the day after being in services all day for Yom Kippur. The latter caused Valerie Meyer to make a special trip to hang the epunch boxes on Saturday to the controls I hung on Friday. At the end of the Yom Kippur service, everyone wished for a good year. So I pass that wish on to all of you too, including your orienteering year!
