Participants in Sunday’s Turkey Run Ridge day event were treated to seasonably mild temps and good visibility in the woods, with no rain. Over 165 orienteers came out to give Matt Smith’s challenging and fun courses a try. For a change of pace, Matt included both a Short and Long Yellow, giving some beginners a chance to stretch their legs. Mike Kholodov designed and set his "Fox O" radio direction finding (ARDF) orienteering course, for those looking to expand their navigation skills repertoire. Kathleen and Greg Lennon set up the pop-up shop for QOC jersey fit checks. Notably, Matt Smith also led a highly informative Orange course discussion and map walk with 11 orienteers, focused on key skills, mindset, and techniques for progress on intermediate through advanced courses.
A big MAHALO goes out to a fantastic crew of volunteers for the event! Thanks to Valerie Meyers, Amy Louden, Sandy Fillebrown (DVOA), and Aaron Linville for map prep and e-punch throughout the day. Thanks to the check-in team of Harry Jones, Jana Seidlova, Kristen Peters, and Curry Wright, who welcomed all with a smile. A special shout out to our morning control setters Laura Linville, Aaron Linville, Charles Carrick, and Mark Thomsen who ensured courses were ready to go. Many thanks, too, to our beginner instructors, Ginny and Gary Quam. Thank you to all who helped with clean-up and pack-out including Gary Quam, Kristen Peters, Ginny Quam, and Curry Wright, and Kathleen Lennon. Charles Carrick played a key role throughout, and I appreciate his coordination with PWFP Chief Ranger Brendan Bonner and Resource Management for QOC’s use of the TRR campsite and training room as our event center, permitting, and course approval. Finally, my thanks go to a dedicated team who stayed to pick up controls: John Organek, Jane Legget, Ginny Quam, Greg Lennon, and Charles Carrick.
