President's Column

Carl Larsson, President

The fall season has just started with a very wet Night Orienteering meet in Veterans' Acres (Crystal Lake) Northwest of Chicago. We joined around 60 brave souls (some would probably say stupid!) challenging the weather and Rich Gaylord and Joe Sehnal's excellent course setting. Some participants made it extra challenging by allowing their maps to get wet, and literally "wash off" the print from their maps. I personally thought the evening's event was tough enough without trying to navigate from a blank piece of paper!

The Club has just launched our new web site. It is not totally completed yet, (which web site is?) but with the help of the new Webmaster, Michael Collins, we are getting very close. We hope that you will find the new site as useful as our previous site. The main reason we changed is that with our own URL we will have the ability to increase feedback to the Club from our members and other visitors to the web site.

I hope you all had a chance to enjoy a few of our local events last Spring. The combination of well-organized events and great weather made for record-breaking number of participants; we may have the same large turnout this Fall. So if you've been a member for a while, please help welcome these new participants to our sport. We want to do our best to make sure everyone has a good time Orienteering.

Hope to see you in the woods!
