This year's event at Patuxent River Park was a very warm one. It felt more like Summer than early Fall. The attendance was good on par with last year's event at Patuxent. Roughly 80% of the starts were QOC members with a smattering of others making up the other 20% including a troop of Girl Scouts, a handful of people from other orienteering clubs, and some people trying out orienteering for the first time. A number of people brought four-legged friends with them at least three of whom were beagles.
The results for the beginner level course were near perfect with almost everyone finishing their course successfully. The intermediate and advanced courses were possibly a little more challenging than some people expected them to be.
A big thank you to all of the volunteers who who helped out at Patuxent River Park. Craig Shelden designed the courses and along with with Suzanne Shelden placed the controls in the woods. Tom Nolan and Valerie Meyer reviewed the courses. Reiko Rager, Iva Zicha, Richard Briggs, John Landers, and JP Landers got participants registered and handed out maps. Ted Good, Jeff Haskell, and Boris Granovskiy provided beginner instructions to those new to orienteering. Heidi Onkst printed maps when we started to run low. Jon Torrance, Kim Jepsen, Anne Jepsen, Richard Fulton, Catherine Fulton, Garrett Fulton, Mark Mace, Chris Puin, Craig Shelden and Suzanne Shelden went out and picked up all the controls. Valerie Meyer, Amy Louden, Allison Brown, and Inara Granovskiy ran the e-punch station and results center.
