What a scorcher! Mother nature wanted to remind us why the QOC takes a break from Orienteering over the DC summer. We had a great meet with close to 250 people heading out in the woods and trails around Lake Needwood. It was especially nice to have the Gaithersburg HS NJROTC, a local girl scout troop, and the BWH DMV hiking club join us today, many of whom were trying Orienteering for the first time. I enjoy talking with people who are just beginning to discover the sport we love.
Today's meet would not have been possible without the help of volunteers:
Unpacking, setup, check-in, cleanup, and packing everything back up for Jug Bay: Michele Fish, Sharmagh Yepremian, Ninely Murphy, Silas Rager, Hunter Ambrose (working on his boy scout merit badge), Suzanne Shelden, and Jan Zicha.
Going back out to pick up controls after running their courses in the heat: Ted Good, David Onkst, Craig Shelden, Martins Jonass, Sharmagh Yepremian, Silas Rager, Joe Barrett, and Sydney Dixon.
Course Design and Setup: Joe and Angie Barrett, Sydney Dixon, and Mike Kholodov (ARDF)
And the volunteers who are there week after week: Amy Louden (e-punch), Valerie Meyer (Maps), Greg Lennon (Website & Registration), Mike Newman (permits), and Craig Shelden (Maryland Event VP).
