2-, 4- and 6-Hour Mini-ROGAINE Training Event at Buffalo Creek
Saturday, June 3rd, 2006

I hope everyone had a good time training the course setter.

Thank you to JP Ingebrigtsen, Eric Stephenson, Bryan Caylor, Brooke Mann and Sherry Litasi. The meet could not have been held without them.

Sharon Crawford was the only person that punched #34. Half the runners visited #9, which was easy to find but difficult to climb.

Lessons learned:

  1. The control was missing from #92. I am very sorry and have adjusted the scores. The control was placed two weeks before the meet. It was more than 200 yards north of the Colorado Trail, but a mountain bike could have been ridden to the control. All the controls need to be placed / vetted the day before the meet. This will require additional volunteers.
  2. There should be more low-value controls placed near the start / finish. The 2-hour runners did not have enough time to punch many controls. This will also help people calibrate to the map scale.
  3. The controls that require subtle navigation should have a higher point value. Examples are #41, #42, #44 and #45.
  4. Controls that are easy to find but present a physical challenge should have a lower value unless they are at a very special place. Examples are #89 and #92.
  5. Meets at Buffalo Creek should be held before Memorial Day or after Labor Day for cooler weather.
  6. The controls in the southwest quadrant were not dense enough to attract many runners. I had planned two controls in the area that were not placed because I thought there was too much nearby firing range activity.
