After the rainy week, this weekend we got very lucky with a such beautiful weather. The clear sky and temperatures over 45F attracted more runners than usually – we had 283 starts with total 361 orienteers on the full set of courses!! What a success! We had many people coming for a very first time. We also had a great number of runners from the Loudoun County, Calvert, Patuxent, and Governor Thomas Johnson NJROTC units training for their 2020 NJROTC National Orienteering championship coming up in March as well as scouts from BSA Troops 1983, 496, 754 and 688.
For those of you wondering about the course distances, we have confirmed that the distances previously posted and also printed on the map were incorrect, due to a scale error. The correct distances for all courses are now shown below.
Big thanks to Daniel Heimgartner for designing of all 7 courses, and to Paul Morris and Keg Good (especially!) for spending hours and hours to set all courses. This a tough responsibility and they all did a great job there! Thanks to Charles Carrick for taking care of park permits for Pohick Bay Park and Meadowood park and for helping me with multiple questions I had prior the event.
The day would not have been possible without a wonderful support of many other great volunteers:

  • Morning setup: Dasa Merkova and Matyas Minar
  • Morning registration: Dasa Merkova and Lenka Kralova. Afternoon shift: Chris and Mike Bianchetta
  • E-punch: Valerie Meyer and Amy Louden
  • Beginners’ instructions: Alexis Merka and Jan Merka
  • Parking management: Louis Nowak, Charles Carrick and Timothy McCormick
  • Road Crossing guards: Harry Jones and Scott Sharp
  • “Jr.” fun course: Boris Granovskiy and Alli Brown
  • Control pickup: Charles Carrick, John Organek, Will Chesarek, Gary and Ginny Quam, Matyas Minar, Scott Sharp, Tim McCormick, and Eric and Amy Hoffman.
Many of control pickup volunteers stayed till the end and helped with the site closing and cleanup. There were probably many other people who just helped throughout the day!
Thanks to all who participated and helped to make this event great and successful!
-Jana Seidlova, event director
