UC Berkeley

Aug. 12, 2001

by Rosemary Johnson, meet director

It was a lovely day for a run at the UC Berkeley campus. Skies were clear, the day was warm but not too hot. White, Yellow and Window-O of varying length courses were on offer. 73 erstwhile orienteers showed up to test their skills. Below are the complete results.

Unfortunately, the course setter's inexperience showed. One control that was on both Yellow and Window was totally incorrect, and another 2 control circles on Window were somewhat misplaced. The question was changed for the 6th control (2nd on Yellow) to suit the control placement after the first Window-O runner returned. My apologies to everyone who was disconcerted by these errors. No response or incorrect answers to these questions were not counted against any participant but many people lost time looking for a non-existent control. Despite these problems there were very few DNFs.

On White (where there were no misplaced control circles) Jeff Pacifici in first at 33:40, David Bond & Marlene Roberts at 35:40 and Steve Wynn & Monica Simpson at 38:40 were far ahead of their competition. On Yellow, Mark Miller blew out the field in 36 minutes flat. He was followed by Terry Pratt at 47:20 and Robert Olson at 59:50. On the Window course, Wyatt Riley and Steve Gregg showed their foot speed finishing at 36:46 and 38:22 respectively. Derek MacLean finished in 41 minutes flat despite being the unlucky first finisher who reported the control circle misplacement.

Many thanks to my crew of helpers: Ev and Jean Beuerman for taking over registration when the East Bay crew couldn't make it; Ian Tidswell for leading Beginners Clinics; Steve Gregg and Mark Blair on Starts; Marsha Jacobs and Larry Bowers (who is a member but had never previously attended an event) on Finishes; and for Marsha Jacobs and Joan Roos who wrapped up the event for me when an unexpected personal commitment required that I leave the meet before closing.
