Writeup by Mike Fleishman

The club experienced an outstanding turnout at Huddart Park for this rare Saturday meet. Although the weather had been threatening rain, nearly 200 runners showed up to run the white and yellow courses, and most were orienteering for the first time. In this regard, Nancy Lindeman, Theo Verhoeven, and Jeff Lanam did an outstanding job of providing briefings for the newcomers. Meanwhile Don Larsen and Chuck Spalding did the thankless job of sorting out the groups and getting them off to a good start. Chuck has been a tireless volunteer at both of my Huddart Park meets and deserves a special thanks for his efforts. At the finish line, the results were diligently recorded by Eric Bone, Brad Johanson, Andrew Garner and Matthias Kohler. As always, Everett and Jean Beuerman did a wonderful job of greeting and registering the eager participants. Stephanie McCain, in addition to helping by reporting an injured runner, teamed up with Cayla Whitney to hang the results. Thanks to everyone for a great effort.

The White Course was run by 97 new orienteers combined into 31 separate groups. The winners were a group comprised of Karim Poonja, David Evans, and Tyler Gorzynski, which ran the course in 23:52, beating the field by over seven minutes. They were followed by Will & Susan Ryan who beat out Susan Blair by one second for second place. Fifteen groups finished in the following ten minutes between 31:50 and 41:07. The fastest time of the day on White (21:45) was actually run by Jane Booth who had already run the Yellow course (finishing 7th with her partner David King). The two apparently had not had enough after the Yellow, and split up to run White as a second course. David was a few minutes behind at 23:59.

There was a major spread among the Yellow course finishers ranging from the winner Dan Dwyer, who ran the course in 37:09 to a number of runners who took over two hours to complete the course. Behind Dan was Alexey Shulgin in second place at 38:36, and Irena Artemieva in third at 42:55. In all 89 people (in 41 groups) ran the Yellow Course for their first run, and another eight groups totaling 20 competitors ran the Yellow Course after trying the White.

This was a second attempt to revisit a park that we have not used in a number of years. The rangers do not want runners to go off-trail, and want to know the exact routes runners are taking. Therefore, it would be impossible to have either advanced courses or a Score-O. There are also financial constraints that make it difficult to hold a meet in this park on any day other than a Saturday in the off-season. However, we now have the map on CAD and are keeping up with trail changes so despite the shortcomings, its close-in location makes it useful as a training site. If anyone would like old maps to use for workouts, please .
