Great Falls

The weather gods were kind enough to arrange a spectacular day to enjoy Great Falls, whether you were orienteering or not, and that certainly helped produce the longest lines of vehicles waiting to enter the park we've ever seen in over 35 years of events at this venue. We also had the lowest number of (pre-registered) no-shows ever, and we thank everyone for realizing that we are under very tight restrictions on many aspects of our use of this park, including total participant numbers, so we really do mean it when we say the event is sold out and we can't allow day-of registration. Speaking of pre-registration: next Sunday's (Nov. 13) event at Prince William Forest is also a pre-registration only event, so if you plan to attend, why not register now if you haven't already?

Many members of our all-volunteer club helped at the event, so we owe special thanks to those who helped with set-up and registration logistics (Petya Aleksieva, John Baker, Erin Brandt, Steve Camp, Mark & Rae Ann Hicks, Suzanne Izzo, Dave Levine, Wendy W.), beginner instruction (Don Fish, Heidi Onkst and Diana Todd), control pickup (Vido Aleksiev, Chris Gross, Victor Lin, Britt Mason & Dusty Reppuhn) and epunch and map printing support (Allison Brown, Amy Louden, Valerie Meyer, & Mary Snieckus). And of course we all thank course setter Nadim Ahmed for the courses we were allowed by the park authorities to offer as well as those we weren't.
