Pohick Bay

Results are posted below as well as on Attackpoint and WinSplits.

One of the few really beautiful orienteering days of 2013-14 season since last autumn saw 140 starts and 199 participants in the woods at Pohick Bay this saturday with temperatures reaching the low 60s. The ground was wet but had dried out somewhat since our last deluge of rain and snow. Sidney Sachs laid out a great set of courses featuring a particularly challenging orange course and a very popular green course. QOC once again defrayed event costs to individuals and groups by paying the park $1 per start in lieu of participants having to pay a park entry fee. The absence of JROTC unit participation somewhat reduced the total starts but for good reason, as Herndon NJROTC was taking time off to celebrate its 3rd place finish at the national JROTC orienteering championships last month and Huntingtown NJROTC and Fork Union Military Academy were heavily represented at the Flying Pig in Cincinnati this weekend.

As always, the volunteers made the event happen. On registration, Paul Hession, Heather Maher, Jennifer Crouse, Gary Smith, Izzy Ortiz (and family), and Wes Kerr kept a steady throughput to the e-punch table where Valerie Meyer, Amy Louden and Mary Snickeus got all the runners out on the course with the help of Paul Weber, John Studach, and Jenner Johnson (and son). Amy also provided her inimitable chocolate chocolate chip cookies for those who got there fast enough. Participating scout troops and other new orienteers were prepared for their courses by Mark Hicks, Jim Chaplin, Bill Wright--despite his cold--and Sidney Sachs who conducted beginner instruction. To finish off the event, Jon Bertheusen, Matthew Knight, Bryan Garman, John Organek, and Dan Quinn picked up the course controls.

Todd Benson and the Pohick Bay Regional Park staff once again provided first-rate support to the event, lending equipment and space to preposition supplies and contributing immeasurably to the success of the event.

Found on a picnic table adjacent to Shelter 1 was a well-used Boy Scout Handbook inscribed with the initials "CPH" and a navy blue sweatshirt emblazoned with "State Route 241 Crew" in yellow. Contact me (703-416-0413) to claim.
