A great turnout, 220 people, attended the Presidio orienteering event on a foggy warm day. The event went smoothly, thanks to Ev and Jean Bauerman and Dean French managing registration. The starts and finishes were in the usual spot at Pershing Square near the visitor's center. Mike Mahoney, Gary Kraght, Nancy Lindeman, Catherine Carr, Tim Bridge (and his dog Bodie) did a great job on starting the participants, several of whom did more than one course. Below are the complete results.
The White and Pink courses were shorter than last year, and this encouraged several to do Yellow as a second. Yellow was the most popular course, with about 70 people. Based on the times, it perhaps was a bit longer and more challenging than it should have been. White and Pink ran through the Letterman complex to give a view of the area that George Lucas will rebuild. Congratulations to the winners: C. Bleyenburg and B. Rust bested the White course in 25:31. J. Liang had the Pink course winning time of 75:18, and M. Jacobs was the Yellow course winner at 70:01.
We had two Start O' participants (ably directed by Werner Haag), Laura Agee and Zion Wilson. Congratulations on a great start in orienteering. Ian Tidswell and Scott Aster directed the Beginners Clinic to help new Orienteers get started. Great work.
The Orange and Long Orange courses were designed to be somewhat longer than last year with the same modest climbs. Because the Presidio has limited open space, some controls were deja vu. I was able to map several new areas, particularly around the rugged coast area and on the east side, to give a great tour of the Presidio and wonderful views. There is a lot of construction going on particularly on the north side that limits access. Perhaps next year we will have some great new control locations.
Bob Cooley made the map corrections and reproduced the maps you enjoyed.
The Orange course winner was G. Denbeaux at 87:45, and the Long Orange Leader was Ian Ramsey (84:00). Ian and Scott Aster (not bad at 91:30) managed to record finishes and the Shakhuovsky's (Olef and Galena) worked the results.
Thanks to all who helped and participated to make this a great event.
