Pocahontas State Park Score-O

On Sunday, 13 March, a Score-O was held for Central Virginia orienteers at Pocahontas State Park. With temps in the high 60s and sunshine, it was a great day to be in the woods! 21 people went out in 13 groups to try their hand on a tough course of 20 controls that challenged the group at every level. Even so, everyone reported that they had a great time. Special thanks goes to Kristi Orcutt and Ellen Stefaniak for advertising the meet and for providing assistance to those who needed it. Thanks also goes to Kathleen Lennon for advertising. And finally, special thanks goes to Kara Chaconas for control Pickup.
