Pohick Bay

RouteGadget and splits on WinSplits are online for this event.

A beautiful late spring day at Pohick Bay Park and a challenging array of courses from course setter Amber Tomas, with a lot of climb, made for a great orienteering day for those not too exhausted from the night orienteering at Morven Park the previous evening.

Thanks to all the volunteers who supported the event: Ed Enson and Ted Holland at the registration table; Johanna Skjaevestad for her great salesmanship on behalf of the club membership effort; Ryan Hanna, Jacqueline Currie, and Paul Weber on control pick-up; Amy, Heidi, and Valerie at the E-punch table; and Jim Chaplin who provided orienteering instruction. A special thanks to the scouts of Troop 2215 and Scout Master Landon Moxley for six hours of continuous work in all areas from registration to control pick-up. Good luck to all those scouts pursuing their orienteering merit badges. Thanks also to Todd Benson and the Pohick Bay Regional Park team for their unstinting support.

Congratulations to those who initiated or renewed their membership in QOC: Louis Novak, the Ozarowski/Kahn family, Thomas Dulaney, Martin Houghton, and the Pe'ev family.

Finally, we recovered two lost items--a Vapro clue sheet holder and a pink patterned handkerchief. Contact or see the meet director for Mason Neck, Bjorn Skjaevestad, to claim.
