When it finally stopped raining this spring, it got very hot and humid. In spite of the heat and corresponding greenery there were 156 starts with 195 individuals on 7 challenging courses. A warm welcome to Boys Scout Troop 66 from Arlington, to Scouts BSA Girls Troop 1853, to Martin and his family - orienteers from Dominican Republic, and to a group of orienteers from Granada!
In reviewing the courses after the event, course setter Keg Good assessed that the course climb was somewhat excessive given the recent onset of heat and humidity, which probably contributed to more DNFs than normal. She indicated that she'll plan to ease back on course difficulty and length next time if similar conditions are predicted.
The day would not have been possible without the wonderful support of many great volunteers:

  • Morning setup: Dasa Merkova and Alexis Merka
  • Registration: Daniel Heimgartner, Dasa Merkova and Lenka Kralova
  • E-punch: Valerie Meyer and Amy Louden
  • Beginners’ instructions: Scott Sharp, Alexis Merka and Monika Kornhauserova
  • Terrain Walk/Training: Jon Torrance
  • “Jr.” fun course: Boris Granovskiy and Alli Brown
  • Control pickup: Alexis Merka, Jan Merka, Patrick Farley, Matt Knight, Paul Hession and Charles Carrick
  • Plus, probably many other people who just helped throughout the day!
