By , Event Director
After a two-year COVID hiatus, we were able to hold our annual end-of-year orienteering-plus-social event in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose. It was a great opportunity to see the wonderful holiday decorations on people’s houses and yards, and the weather cooperated, too—cool but clear.
There were about 110 total participants, a mix of long-time club members and total newcomers. Many people came out with family and friends.
A good number of club members stuck around afterwards for the potluck social. The food was great, as usual.
Nick Corsano presented the 2022 BAOC Service Award to Steve Gregg, who has made major contributions to the club for over 25 years. Nominations for the award had been submitted by club members, and the recipient was selected by the previous recipients. Thank you, Steve, for your continuing service to the club!
Thanks for making the 2022 Willow Glen Holiday Lights event possible go to:
- Nancy Lindeman for getting the permit and managing the potluck.
- Jeff Lanam for setting the courses, getting the maps printed, and explaining everything to the participants.
- Chuck Spalding for taking care of the website, helping with registration, and managing the scoring.
- Other helpers included Graham Brew (scoring), James Roney (scoring), and Dan Ingram (insurance).

I’m sorry it has taken me so long to compile the results. I’ve probably spelled a few names wrong (if yours is wrong, write more clearly next time 😉).
I did make several mistakes in the questions, and at least one answer was changed by the homeowner. Both I and the scoring team tried to adjust the scores for that. But as far as I’m concerned, you’re all winners.
Within a tie based on scores, the order is based on the finish time (i.e., from fastest to slowest).
Thanks for coming out. Thanks to Steve Haas, Nancy Lindeman, and everyone who helped.
