Bumble 2023

Bumble #11 was a BLAST! It was a day with perfect weather, 90+ mass start competitors running through five “windows”, nearly 100 other participants starting at their own pace on courses, lots of fun photos with the Bumble, and a good bit of mud (except for Michael Dickey who managed to do the Blue course with out getting his feet wet or picking up any mud! Great route choices, Michael!)
Congratulations to our Bumble Mass Start winners:

  • Peggy Dickison – first female across the finish line
  • Greg Lennon – first male across the finish line (congrats on paying attention and punching the final control, unlike Wyatt who missed it despite being a seasoned Bumbler!)
  • Joe Barrett – top competitor on Blue
  • Alex Merka – top competitor on Red
And kudos to those who snagged Time Bonuses! (windows numbered from north to south)
  • Diana Aleksieva – 3:00 min / Window #1, control D – THE (Michael Dickey visited the control first but failed to take the lanyard! again, it pays to pay attention to the instructions.)
  • Peggy Dickison – 3:00 min /window #2, control G – BUMBLE
  • Tom Nolan – 1:30 min / window #3, control M – HITS
  • Mathieu Patte – 2 :30 min / window #4, control T – JUG
  • Carl Lundgren – 2:30 min / window #5, control X – BAY
The Bumble would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of MANY volunteers both before and during the event. Maryland VPs Mike Newman and Craig Shelden made sure the permit was in place and volunteer tools provided. Greg Lennon did yeoman’s work to make sure online registration was organized to fit a mass start and notices were emailed. Kathleen Lennon pumped up the event on social media, and Valerie Meyer and hubby Roger prepped the maps. Dave Linthicum brought welcomed manpower to setting/vetting controls, and Nadim Ahmed helped figure out a last-minute Condes map challenge.
The day went smoothly with Dan Lathrop, Jane Leggett, Jen Werner, and Clair Winchester manning check-in and map distribution. Jeff Haskell and Turk Ozerol arrived early to do everything from inflating the new Bumble, putting out signage, and flagging a trail. Steve Camp, Jason Hataye, and Jeff Haskell (doing a double volunteer shift!) helped those new to orienteering learn the basics for a fun first-time outing. Steve and Jane got a the fire started for marshmallow toasting, and a cadre of folks helped pick up controls: Joe Barrett, Beatri Bennett, Michael Dickey, Chris Gross, Martins Jonass, Mark Mace, Shanna Sorrells, Sharmagh Yepremian, Howie Weinstein, and Tom Wells. Greg and Kathleen Lennon handed out t-shirts to well deserving top volunteers. And of course, Valerie Meyer and Amy Louden managed e-punch registration and results flawlessly as they do each week. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you. Your commitment to the club is deeply appreciated and valued.
Here’s to more fun in the woods. We look forward to hosting Bumble #12 in 2024!
