Event Write-Up

By

Two hundred thirty people bounded about on the seven courses at Tilden Park on Sunday. The pleasant weather, soft ground conditions, and fierce competition made for a January day to be remembered.

Great competition we had:

Orienteering has many delights, and these were on display Sunday. Gathering together after the races were many families, youth groups, and a good number of international visitors. A full range of ages were there, from an infant in a Dad's arms to several finishers in their eighties. How many other sporting events can boast such a diversity of participants?

It was wonderful to see the gathering of so many juniors in the pre- and post-race training sessions conducted by Erin Schirm, the U.S. Junior Team Coach. Our BAOC Juniors are making an impact on the national scene.

Being an event director for BAOC is one of my joys in life. It really is tantamount to producing a play. And as event directors know, the success of the production depends entirely upon the volunteers, who freely offer their time and skills to support the sport. It was great to sit back watch them do their things.

Graham & Chris Brew began several months ago designing courses. They put in dozens of hours in the field and at home on their computers, tweaking the courses until obtaining the final product. Thanks guys! They were assisted by vetters, Steve Harrison and Leslie Minarik.

On the day of the event, the club volunteers leaped into action. Working the registration table were Gary & Olga Kraght, Masha Konkov, Scott Aster, and Natalie Kim. The e-punch crew was Rosemary Johnson & Jeff Lanam. (The results were posted before I made it home!) Gary Carpenter and Natalie Kim gave numerous beginner's clinics. Sarah Minarik & Andy Cretcher were the couple greeting you up at the Start. Marie-Josée Parayre was responsible for those healthy and tasty refreshments. Many people pitched in with the set up and take down, including Steve Harrison, Jeff Dickert, Gary Carpenter, Andy Cretcher, Sarah Minarik, and Dennis Wildfogel. Thanks to the hardy control pickup crew: Graham & Chris Brew, Vicki Woolworth, Steve Harrison, Natalie Kim, Peter Graube, Devon Prouty, Julia Doubson, Fyodor Konkov, and Misha Kreslavsky. Please forgive me if I missed anyone.

Behind the scenes, club stalwarts Bob Cooley printed the maps, Marina Keating handled the insurance, and Chuck Spalding was the webmaster.

Finally a big thank you to the friendly people of the East Bay Regional Park District. They were supportive and accommodating to anything we wanted to do. EBRPD is a major reason we love to live in the East Bay.
