PWF Happyland

We had a superb evening of night orienteering at Prince William Park Camp 5 (Happyland). Although the temperature had dropped from earlier in the week, it was above freezing with no wind, a clear sky, and a beautiful full moon. A number of the training weekend participants ran courses, along with a number of QOC members and even a few new folks. We had a total of 83 starts and didn’t lose anyone in the dark! Ken Walker Jr. designed some challenging, but fun, courses that garnered many compliments. Several of our stalwarts volunteered their time to help. Amy Louden handled the e-punch and start/finish tasks assisted by Hannah and Kevin Culberg. Paul Hession single-handedly braved the cold and directed the parking. Laura Linville ran registration with assistance from Daniel Heimgartner and James Chaplin. Many thanks to the weekend training crew, led by Hannah Culberg, for picking up our controls on Sunday. Best of all, we got it in ahead of this week’s storm.
