2017-10-29 West Tyson Results

Thank you to everyone that made it out to West Tyson Park.¬† It was a beautiful day and we had a great turn out.¬† It was great to see a lot of people stick around to get to know one another and talk about their route decisions, experiences, and whoopsies ūüôā¬† A special welcome and congratulations to all the new orienteers that were at the event this weekend.¬† Everyone that participated in the White Course completed it, despite it being a rather difficult white course and it could have even been categorized as a more difficult course (Yellow).¬† The newbies should be proud of their accomplishment.¬† The Orange and Red Course were both more challenging than usual, as well, with many of the CP’s requiring lengthy travel distance over many different terrain/feature changes which can confuse even the most experienced orienteers if your mind strays from the map for even a second.¬† I was impressed by how well everyone did on both the Orange and Red Courses.¬† A big thank you to Kevin Minton, Reanna Pierson, and Kate Geison for assisting with registration.¬† Thank you to Jerry Young for assisting with starts.¬† Thank you to Jeff Ryan for placing water on the course.¬† Thank you to Nathan Graves, Kevin Minton and Scott Shaw for clean-up.

Regarding scoring, I apologize for not reminding everyone more loudly about the 2.5 hour time limit on the course.¬† It was written on the website and vocalized to some but not all.¬† For this reason, I scored anyone who came in less than 2.5 hours higher but still gave credit for all those who found more CP’s at lengthier times.¬† I’ll remedy this for future courses.¬† I look forward to seeing everyone at the Turkey Trot on 11-25-17 in Alton, IL directed by Jerry Young and family.
