Temperatures in the high 70s, down from the mid/upper 80s, and reduced humidity gave us an enjoyable mid-September Washington-area day on which to begin our 2021-2022 season and also managed to generate 215 total starts.

QOC was happy to welcome back the Loudoun County, Calvert and Great Mills NJROTC units after a year of COVID-induced absence from our events.

Thanks, as always, to the many volunteers at the event, and also behind the scenes, who got us off on a great start to the season:

Greg Lennon devised a variant of our existing Wufoo-based pre-registration protocol that achieved balance between the need to distribute NJROTC starts over the course of the event with simplicity of execution and flexibility for JROTC leaders to finalize their attendance plans.

Valerie Meyer furthered that effort by preparing map packages for each participating NJROTC unit, streamlining the process for NJROTC leaders to get cadets out on their courses. Valerie's pre-bagging and sealing of maps the day before the meet, an innovation carried over from last season, has also radically simplified the process of checking in all of our runners.

Once again, Daniel Heimgartner helped us remotely from his home in New York with selected map updates and good advice.

Craig Shelden prepared the course maps for printing and distribution to participants.

On the ground, Greg and Kathleen Lennon came down from Maryland to put out course controls on Saturday afternoon.

On the actual day of the event, Einar Olsen and Nic Turza showed up early to help with set-up.

Radka and Veronika Herndon and Tim McCormick checked in our participants over the course of the day.

Scott Sharp, Helen Doherty and Gary and Ginny Quam helped ensure social distancing at the starts and ensured that starters understood the basics of the e-punch and how to use it.

On control pick-up, Erik Gruner, Tom Strat, Steve Doherty, Nadim Ahmed, Keg Good, Alex Merkova and Lucy Kosatova did the hard work of going back out into the woods after having already taken on challenging courses.

Amy Louden was, as always, almost the first to arrive and one of the last to leave the event, setting up the e-punch station in the morning and resetting all the controls after they had been retrieved in the evening. Ben Roberts and Michael Wood also pitched in at the epunch station. And Valerie took time out from working the adventure race at Fountainhead to help us as well.

Keg Good and Sidney Sachs spearheaded the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics orienteering championships hosted by QOC at Lake Accotink.

Thanks also in advance to Sidney Sachs for hosting the course review for this event this coming Tuesday night at 8pm on Zoom.

A great start to our 2021-2022 season. See you at Cabin John and LZ Canary!
