Fountainhead 2020

The weather was great for January and the turnout was excellent - 160 starts - though we surely missed our cadets! We had many new people participate, some simply walking over to see what orienteering was all about and then going out on a course.
I’d like to thank Jon Torrance for designing a great set of challenging courses. Besides putting out the controls, he also ported 15 gallons water out to the water points, several of which were located quite deep in the woods, a pretty important consideration when the temperatures suddenly spiked. Today was also Jon’s birthday—Happy Birthday, Jon!
Our registration crew was outstanding and I would like to thank them for the great support they provided. This is a hard task with very little opportunity to take a break and I want to thank Daniel Heimgartner who continued to help even past his shift. His advice was valuable, providing great help to me and Gavin Weise, two ‘newbies’ when it came to registration. We were well backstopped by Sid Sachs who has been a QOC stalwart and a great ‘go to’ person for years and years! The second shift of Jana Seidlova and Paul Hession continued the high level of excellence. Jana will run the next meet at Pohick Bay and we can be sure it will run flawlessly if today was any indication. I want to thank the registration crew for the truly fine job they did. We are lucky to have such dedicated volunteers.
A very special thanks today to Chuck Ferguson and Rick Oliver for the fine work they did with instructing new people on orienteering. We had a greater-than-normal number of people requesting instruction and both Rick and Chuck were busy throughout the day. Many of us probably don’t notice the ongoing instruction during the meets, but if you do have some time either before or after a run, your help would be greatly received.
Besides tough courses, Jon has a knack of putting out a large number of controls, a situation that requires a really dedicated and experienced control pickup team who have to drag themselves into the woods once again, after a hard run. I want to thank Jon Torrance, Charles Carrick, John Baker, and Bill Wright, for adding another hour to pick up the controls and the water points. Today, one of the two water points that Bill Wright had to pick up had two unused gallons of water—not too bad when the points are strategically located near a road, but in this case, they were in the deep woods, where Jon had transported them.
And very special thanks to Valerie Meyer and Amy Louden for their great support handling the ‘electronic’ portion of the meet, and for continuing to ‘glue’ the various operations together. It is to easy to not realize the vital role they play to make meets a success, often having to put up with some very challenging environments, but yet producing the flawless results we have become used to.
Finally, this meet would not have been successful without the excellent coaching—and patience—that Charles Carrick provided, as well as taking care of a myriad of details that made this a great meet. Perhaps it is not the Super Bowl nor the Olympics, but a lot of volunteer effort goes into staging a meet like this. But if you had a great experience, you made it all worthwhile! Good Job!
John Organek, Meet Director
