Colorado Orienteering Championships at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch
Saturday, October 8th, 2011 -- Elbert

The weather for this meet was (in my opinion) completely miserable -- snowy, wet, and cold. There was about 6" of snow on the ground and the official high yesterday in Elbert was 38°F. Brrr.

The weather definitely affected our attendance and I think it also caused an unusually high number of DNFs.

But, some hard-core orienteers showed up to compete in the 2011 Colorado Orienteering Championships! Congratulations to our winners:

Course Male Female
Red Leif Anderson Carolyn Atwood

Orange Gregory Oelrichs --
Orange -- Junior Miguel Muñoz --
Yellow -- Junior Bradley Rounds --
White -- Junior -- Juliette Carney

Extra-special thanks to some of our volunteers:

  • Brian Coleman, who used his high-level Scouting connections to obtain access to a heated room for us to work out of for registration and e-punch. Brian also directed runners to the meet area after our signs got covered in snow.

  • Bob Ellis, who drove all the way from Nederland to volunteer at the meet, even though he couldn't compete due to an achilles tendon injury.

  • Simon Maybury, another volunteer who drove a long way (from Golden) even though he wasn't competing. Simon took charge of developing a search and rescue plan when we became concerned about some runners who hadn't finished.

  • Leif Anderson, who came up with the idea of having a club championship and who also helped pick up controls.
