On June 3, The QOC Chase for 2011 returned to the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary. The day was overcast and humid, but without thunderstorms or overly aggressive mosquitoes.
For the Chase Ted Good prepared 5 courses:
There were 66 starts spread among the choices. Results are shown below.
Dasa Merkova and Jan Merka organized the Lemonade Chase “O” which was enjoyed by the younger orienteers as well as many of the grown-ups. This event incorporated all types of O—foot, bike, ski, and canoe—as adapted for the Jug Bay site. Snowshoes substituted for skis, for example.
The 2011 Annual General Meeting was held prior to the Chase. A quorum being present, as ascertained by Secretary Dave Hauver, voting for five Board positions was conducted with the results as follows:
Following the Chase and picnic came general announcements, recognition of course setters and meet directors from the second half of the season, and the awarding of QOC’s Volunteer of the Year award to Gary Smith, VP for Virginia, and Karla Hulett.
Gary Smith and Mike Newman then presented the schedule for 2011—2012 and began recruiting meet directors and course setters. In addition to the regular meets, Jan Merka is organizing another ski-O in Pennsylvania in February 2012. Bike-Os and another trail race are also likely.
This was the last meet for a number of Brazilians who have been an active contingent in QOC over the past three years, most of whom are returning home to Brazil this summer. We wish them the best and hope to have them visit again soon.
QOC donated $200 to the Jug Bay Sanctuary for the use of the site.
Many thanks to all the volunteers* who made the day so much fun:
* A certain meet director (initials: M. Newman) failed to post the volunteer sign-in and therefore has a far-from-complete list of the many people who helped at the Chase. My apologies and many, many thanks for your efforts.
