We enjoyed a great day of Orienteering at Cunningham Falls this past Sunday. Although we had a few clouds, the day remained cool and dry.

We had 152 total starts, with 12 trying out second courses in some of the most challenging terrain in our area. Three area NJROTC groups were represented: Thomas Johnson Patriot, Huntingtown, and Loudoun.

Due to the rugged nature of the terrain, QOC was supported by the Maryland and MidAtlantic Wilderness Rescue Squad. Although everyone was relieved to not need their professional services, we were very happy to have them on site. Major thanks to the team for their support.

Our volunteers made the event succeed:
Jon Torrance put together the initial base map for our first event here in 2016.
Michael Dickey, updated the base map; designed and set the courses; and led control pickup (!)
Michael Newman arranged our permit and coordinated support with MMWRES.
Greg Lennon ensured our website was updated, that online registration worked flawlessly, flexed rapidly to enable some last-minute registrations – and helped with control pickup.
Suzanne Shelden ensured the event maps printed successfully.
Steve Camp helped with set up.
Ted Good and Greg Palardy helped with set up and checked in the first groups of participants. They were relieved by Ryan Stasiowski for the second shift, who also helped the occasional beginner get started.
Aaron Linville brought the Orange and Advanced Start down from the hillside.
Alexis Merka, Kathleen Lennon, Lydia Andrews, Matt Smith all helped with control pickup.
Dasa Merkova helped with clean up.
Courtney Shelden helped throughout the day with setup, Beginner support, control pick up and clean up.
Valerie Meyer posted the results and set up Route Gadget for course reviews.
Kim and Anne Jepsen offered assistance after their runs.

A special shout out to our sole e-punch administrator Amy Louden, who single-handedly kept multiple registrations, second starts, results, and corrections moving flawlessly throughout the day. Thanks, Amy!

It’s always a privilege to work with our team. Thank You & See you at Patuxent for Halloween!

Craig Shelden, Event Director
