Next events: Sunday Oct. 16 QOC members are encouraged to attend the Mid-Atlantic Champs, and then on Oct. 23, we'll have an event at Patuxent. Registration is also about to open (and may have by the time you read this) for our Nov. 6 Great Falls event.

Contrary to the forecast, the day started out with heavy mist and some light rain. That didn’t stop more than 180 people from coming out to the wonderful terrain at Fountainhead for some orienteering. This was Laura and Aaron’s second time as Event Directors (first since their nuptials) and they were very grateful to all the volunteer help.

Course Designer Jon Torrance set a full set of classic courses and a special 17.1 km UltraLong with a quad-burning 710 meters of climb.

We had 9 people to help retrieve all 53 controls. From the West-side to the East-side of the park: Paul Hession, Charles Carrick, John Organek, Victor Lin, Mihai Sirbu, Rick Oliver, Dan Pike, Bill Wright. Event co-director Aaron stretched his legs to pick-up the the lonely UltraLong controls 5 to 9 out on the peninsula.

John Baker and Scott Sharp smoothly handled the rush of early registration and Dash Ashley and brand-new-member Tavia Sullens picked up the second shift.

There were quite a number of first time orienteers and Bob Hart was on-hand to provide novice instruction and quick refreshers.

Valerie Meyer and Amy Louden handled the e-punch results which gives us the detailed stats and results that we love.
