The weather for our meet at Pohick Bay was unpromising at the start, and those who came from the Baltimore area and points north had to drive through heavy rain to get there. But by noon, it had turned into a great late-winter day that felt as though spring had arrived.

Hannah Culberg designed a great slate of courses that took advantage of the best features of both the northern part of Pohick Bay Park and Meadowood East. And the event had an unusually high total of 228 starts with the green course as the favorite, attracting 50 runners. The green and orange courses were so popular that we ran out of maps and had to send Gavin Weise on an emergency map printing mission to the Fedex store in nearby Lorton.

The basic concept of this year's Pohick event--to add some variety to the usual Pohick format--seemed to be a success. Relocating the registration/start/finish area to Camp Wilson put the shorter courses on fresh terrain and adding a road crossing into Meadowood SRMA East did something similar for Green, Red, and Blue runners. The parking spaces that the park has added along the entrance road and the shelter, storage, and power afforded by the wash house building out-of-season combine to make Camp Wilson a very viable winter meet location.

But this plan meant an increased need for volunteers, and QOC members stepped up to the task to make the meet happen. On behalf of all the participants, thanks to our corps of volunteers for their efforts: Rae Ann Hicks, Bill Vienna, Helen Doherty, Sidney Sachs, and Sarah Komm at the registration table; Mark Hicks, Gavin Weise, and John Baker on beginner instruction; Will Chesarek, Dennis Doherty, and Andrew Komm directing the parking; Patrick Farley and David Ashley ensuring a safe crossing of Gunston Road for the long courses; and Kim and Anne Jepsen, John Miller, Steve Doherty, Britt Mason, Dusty Reppuhn, Gary Smith, Rick Oliver, Sam Listwak, and Gavin Weise picking up controls. Thanks also--as always--to our world-class E-punch and meet timing crew, Valerie Meyer and Amy Louden and also to Keg Good for leading the effort to provide training on the club's defibrillator devices.

Finally, Pohick Bay Regional Park Director, Kevin Casalenuovo and his crew at Pohick Bay Region Park--Assistant Director Brad Jackson, and park specialists Scout, Meg and Eddy--provided great support to our event, as did Tim Hough, the event coordinator for the Bureau of Land Management at Meadowood.

Thanks to all!
