Great Falls

Course results can be seen below. Splits are available on Attackpoint or Winsplits.

Under bright sunny skies, over 200 orienteers enjoyed Sam Listwak's courses and the open woods of the Great Falls area (as well as the fee-free park entrance!). We also attracted the attention of numerous passerby showing interest in our activity, and we did our best to entice them to attend future events. Indeed, at this event we had over 30 first-timers, with almost even representation over the courses. While not all our terrains will be as pleasant as Great Falls, hopefully many will become hooked nonetheless.

Many thanks to our volunteers: Dasa Merka, Daniel Heimgartner, Stephanie Coffin and Karen Butler handled Registration; Don Fish and Petya Aleksieva made sure everyone found the start location; Alex Merka and Diana Aleksieva provided beginner instruction; Alex Merka, Jan Merka, Nadim Ahmed, Dan Quinn, Kim Jepsen and Peggy Dickison went out for control pick up; Amy Louden, Valerie Meyer and Nicole Aleksieva manned the E-punch results.
