The McLaren results are [finally] available below. As many of you know, we had three controls stolen some time between 6:50 AM and 10:15 AM that morning. I have made adjustments to those who ran Course 4 to reflect estimated times for the missing controls. If you spent some time looking for them, it means that your time is better. If you knew about it and skipped them, it means that your time is a bit longer.
After getting these changes made, I then had a few problems uploading them to our online results processing system. I have to give a huge THANK YOU to Mark Blair for giving me a lot of help! Early this morning [December 5] Mark got our data to upload. Woo Hoo!
The good news is that our online results system is better now than it was a month ago.
There were some pretty exciting things from my point of view, mainly in the Middle School Girls class. More on that soon.

Winter Series Write-Up
This was the first meet of the Bay Area Winter Series (BAWS).
There was not a lot of neck-to-neck competition in this race.
Pretty much, the standings at control 2 were the standings at the end of the race. Rex Winterbottom was in 1st place at control 2, and never let it go. Kyle Peter was in 2nd place at control 2, and that never changed. Dennis Wildfogel took 3rd place to round out the top of the men's class.
In the Women's class, Vicki Woolworth took the honors of 1st place, followed by Johanna Merriss 2nd, and Jennifer Kerr 3rd.
The most interesting thing was the wide variation in times to control 1, from a low of 20 seconds by Wayne Caplinger (4th place) to a high of almost ten minutes. This was a turning control of a sort, just there so that everyone left the Start in the same direction. It also provided three reasonable route choices to control 2. I was wondering if anyone would retrace their steps past the Start, as there seems to be a subtle aspect of human nature that always wants to make progress and somehow views backtracking as some sort of admission of a mistake. I saw Rex and his trainee sprint across the lawn, so that answered my question.
Controls 2 through 8 were the first pinball area, with short legs bouncing back and forth. Control 9 was the second long leg, and was missing in the morning. Controls 10 through 14 were the second pinball section, and everyone seemed to have gotten used to the course by then, as there didn't seem to be any problems of note, other than control 13 missing as well in the morning. The third long leg went to 15, mainly to get some distance in the course for our Varsity runners, a turning control to 16, then on home.
Both the Men's and the Women's classes showed similar point distribution, with a superstar taking the 100 points, one person in the eighties, and then the main pack starting in the sixty-something range.
There is a Winter Series in the Seattle area with over a hundred runners each meet. Eric Bone seems to win most of the meets. Time will tell if the same type of series will be popular in our area.
