The meet went well despite the continuous wind. I think we should re-name this map Windy Ranch.
Lots of people came in saying they were cursing JP during their run, but, by the end, were appreciative of the challenging course. There were lots of navigational choices to make around the hills, re-entrants, and rock features.
We had a good group of participants ranging from beginners and families to expert orienteers and adventure athletes. We also had a star-studded group of volunteers. Without them, the meet most certainly would not have been the great success it was.
The following folks deserve a whole lot of appreciation:
Course Setter: JP Ingebrigtsen
Course Vetters: Gordon and Nancy McCurry
Control Hanging: JP Ingebrigtsen, Gordon and Nancy McCurry
Set-up / Breakdown: Doug Berling, John Crowther, Dennis Carney, Nancy McCurry, Jane Parody, JP Ingebrigtsen
Registration: Dennis Carney, Leif Anderson and JP Ingebrigtsen
E-Punch Coordinator: Dream Team -- Doug Berling, John Crowther and Jody Henderson
Piņata Construction: no piņata
Beginner Instruction: Leif Anderson, Gordon McCurry, Bob Ellis and Kathleen Brennan
Start / Finish: Gordon and Nancy McCurry, Carol Johnson. Not only did Gordon and Nancy help with this post, but they were stranded in the wind for the duration of the meet. I would like to thank them and apologize to them for not dividing their time there more considerately.
Control Pickup: Gordon McCurry, Doug Berling, Dennis Carney, John Crowther, JP Ingebrigtsen and Jane "home is where you park it" Parody
