Due to a late date change, which effectively killed Judy Koehler's publicity efforts, we had a "light" turnout at Annadel of only 142 orienteers. However, the weather was ideal this year. By running the starts out of an area we hadn't used before, people got a somewhat different look at Annadel. Club regulars didn't let the date change and schedule conflict with Gold Country's Doton Point event deter them, as Red and Green were the most heavily subscribed courses. Even among the first-timers, many chose to start out on a more advanced course - Orange and Brown, even Red and Blue, leading to a number of DNF's on the advanced courses. But everyone checked into the finish at a reasonable time and I admire their enthusiasm. Below are the complete results.

The other key statistic is 27 volunteers. That's how many people it took to put on a very successful meet. Fortunately no orienteering elves volunteered to misplace or steal controls. A big thanks goes to the entire Annadel honor roll of Scott Aster, Ev & Jean Beuerman, Harold & Penny DeMoss, Stacy & Gerry Goss, Steve Gregg, Tapio Karras, Leif Kirschenbaum, Judy Koehler, Matthias Kohler, Alan & Debra LaVergne, Adrian Martin, David Meredith, George Minarik, Kent Ohlund, Joan Roos, James Scarborough, Joe Scarborough, Dan Stoll-Hadayia, Bill Straka, Chris Taylor, Idell Weydemeyer, Gavin Wyatt-Mair. My apologies if I missed anyone.

Courses were a little on the long side, and Annadel lends itself to technical course-setting. So everyone who finished gets a "job well done" award. Families dominated the winners list. White and Yellow were won by two Wyatt-Mair juniors, Kelsey and Malcolm. Eric Gordon wasn't too tired after a fine Orange run, so he tried Yellow as a second course. Brown and Green were bested by another family, Sarah and George Minarik, with Leslie Minarik second on Brown. Bruce Wolfe made a rare appearance to show how the top U. S. M45 runs Red, and Syd Reader led a very competitive pack on Blue.

The most eye-opening run of the day, though, belongs to Anneliese Steuben. She was fourth on Red, demolishing most of the rest of the field of very strong male runners. Her training is certainly paying dividends, as she readies herself for the Junior World Championship this summer.
