We had a superb day at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Landing Zone Canary on Saturday. With mild temps in the low 70s and cloudy skies, runners and walkers had the opportunity to enjoy a challenging set of courses designed and set by Paul Hession on QOC’s 2017 National Championship map covering Training Area 16B. We had a terrific turnout of 142 starts, including impressive crews from both Patuxent HS and Loudoun County HS NJROTC units. Thank you all for joining us!
Many, many thanks got to an outstanding group of volunteers, who gave their time, energy, and smiles to ensure everything went smoothly. Bill Wright and Charles Carrick coordinated through early and frequent communication with MCBQ on access and permit, delivery of portable toilets, and provided on-site assistance at the VCC Saturday morning to ensure folks were able to join us on the base. Greg Lennon likewise provided tremendous advanced support as registrar and coordinated with base security on the roster of all participants. Paul Hession and Charles Carrick hung the controls ahead of our event.
Craig Shelden prepared the course maps, and Valerie Meyer printed maps and sealed cases, after Roger Meyer did the stuffing. This prep work makes map handout that much easier, saving time for participants and enhancing our Covid prevention measures!
Set up went quickly at LZ Canary (after an early navigation error on my part) thanks to Will Chesarek, Scott Sharp, Bill Wright, Matt Skowronski, Harry Jones, and Joshua Rillera. Harry Jones, Laura Linville, and Shawna Barry greeted our eager orienteers and kept the flow moving along safely at check-in. Bill Wight and Scott Sharp both managed orderly parking, and performed Range Safety Officer duties, keeping the base informed of our event status throughout the day. Janis Board was our EMT from Amphibious Medics. Amy Louden led the E-Punch operations in typical efficient fashion with assistance from Laura Linville and Shawna Barry. Aaron Linville set up the live results tracking and Valerie Meyer sent the results to multiple portals on the web.
As a result of the VCC closing a bit early, we arranged rides between VCC and LZ Canary for those not able to get through base security, thanks to the generosity of Howie Weinstein, Ted Good, Jody Landers, Paul Hession, and Charles Carrick, and likely others that I missed. Control pick-up went smoothly due to the extra effort from Justin Green, Kathleen Lennon, Greg Lennon, Paul Hession, and Charles Carrick.
Finally, Suzanne Shelden, Craig Shelden, Laura Linville, Aaron Linville, Mark Lundbald, Kristina Lundblad, Beatri Bennett, Rob Field made short work of site clean up and packing all the equipment for E-Punch, controls, and the VA event kit.
Thank you all so very much for making this a fun, safe, and satisfying event! We hope to see many of you back for upcoming events Oct. 17 at Gunston Hall and Oct. 24 at Cunningham Falls.
