Hi everybody!
We had 226 starts with just a few skeletons in the woods, but we made sure that even the bones and skulls got safely back from the woods.
Big thank you to all volunteers for making this event happen. It was a fantastic day with so much fun around. Goblins, butterflies, zombies, Spice Girls, devils, witches, skeletons, victims of alien abductions, what a great company! I love all those costumes and decorations that Sharmagh Yepremian, Jenny Kuenz, Don Fisher, and Francielo's family helped to set; great Halloween spirit!
Thank you, Harry, for your help with registration, setup, and bringing maps for us. Happy to have you on my team! Thank you, Cecilia Landers, Michael Jarmik, Reiko, and David Rager, for your help at registration and for making sure all got additional notes for their courses.
Thank you, Jody Landers, Erin Brandt, and Chris Gross, for your willingness to share your knowledge about orienteering with beginners.
Thank you, Amy and Matt Smith, for handling epunch and patience with all those questions, Lydia Andrews for clean up, and Valerie, thank you for printing and preparing maps; we missed you there.
Thanks to Mike Newman and Craig Shelden for all permits, communication, and paperwork that is so important for holding events, Greg Lennon for the smooth online registration process, and Kathleen Lennon for all those beautiful posts on social media.
Thank you to Mike Dickie for challenging and fun courses in this little park.
Another special thanks to Sharmagh for helping find volunteers and setting the signup sheet for the next meet. Everybody, please help to fill these volunteer positions when you can; it is a great chance to meet your fellow orienteers or have more running in the woods when you allow control pick-up.
And last, thank you to my co-director, Jan Merka, for sharing this responsibility with me.
Thank you,
- Dasa
