Event Write-Up

By

Wow, a perfect day! We had about 110 folks participate on a sunny 68-degree day in a beautiful setting​—​a great day to be orienteering! This is only the second time we have orienteered in this beautiful venue, and both times have been just gorgeous.

Just to make sure we all remember: the map was originally drafted two years ago by Emily Radtke for her Girl Scout Silver Award project. We are still grateful to her​—​we are only using the park for orienteering because of her work. Thanks Emily!

I'd like to especially recognize Jay Hann, for the huge amount of work he did mapping and field checking the northern third of the map, as well as assisting with course setting, vetting, equipment, and event-day. Thanks Jay!

Special thanks to the City of Benicia, notably Ann Dunleavy and Rick Knight, for the use of their property. It's a beautiful park, and we all appreciate it.

Lost and Found

I have an elastic, clue-sheet, arm band with a Blue clue sheet in it. Please let know if it is yours and what to do with it.

Results

The complete results are below.

They are interesting to analyze. The courses were clearly quite fast! Generally in Orienteering, 10 minutes per kilometer is considered a very respectable pace. Here are the folks who were faster than that (first course only):

    Matej Šebo           Blue    6.5 min/km!!!
    Rex Winterbottom     Brown   7.2 min/km
    Lubo Šebo            Blue    7.5 min/km
    Dennis Wildfogel     Brown   7.7 min/km
    Ann Marie Cody       Red     8.2 min/km 
    Tac Sugiyama         Red     8.5 min/km
    Tapio Karras         Red     8.5 min/km
    Nikolay Chukanov     Red     9.0 min/km
    Steve Harrison       Green   9.4 min/km
    Graham Brew          Red     9.7 min/km
    Anastasiya Gordeeva  Red     9.9 min/km
    Gavin Williams       Red     9.9 min/km

The winner on White was Alison Weber​—​and she did it in 10.4 minutes per km. It looks like BAOC has another speedy up-and-coming Junior!!! And Alison garnered a ton of points for the COOL season.

Some folks took on second courses, and some even did three courses: Greg Mandler progressed really rapidly from White to Yellow to Brown! Wow, that's some fast improvement! And Greg Favor did Blue, Green and Long Brown​—​he's tough! If your name is Greg, do you have to do three courses?

Thanks for coming out folks​—​see you again soon!
