Note from the meet director:

Thanks to everybody who came out to Poplar Creek sprints. We had a moderate turn out, probably due to unpredictable weather. Those who came out early enough, enjoyed overcast skies, and cool temperatures. Those who came out later in the day "enjoyed" thunder, lightning, and torrential rains. People were soaked, visibility reduced, and parts of the second sprint flooded and turned into one enormous swamp. The rain came and went twice, we kept moving the start tables deeper and deeper into the shelter, and yet people continued to run, finish, and even go out on the bike-O course. Nobody seemed to mind the weather too much, probably due to warm temperatures. The Bike-O proved to be a limited success, those who tried it seemed to like it, but only a few people tried, surely the weather being a factor. Personally I'd like to see more bike-O events offered, they complement nicely sprints and other nonstandard events which are often held on smaller, flatter maps. (Can a canoe-O/bike-O combination be far behind?)

Anyway, I would like to thank all the volunteers who made my job ridiculously easy, such as Lenny Valentina and Gregory Shatskin, for designing, setting the courses, and running registration, Steve Breeze - registration, Michael Collins, Elena Maliuta, Elena Backiev, Juliya Prokofeva- results, Morris, IL boy scouts, Tonya Kuzmis, Boris Tannenbaum and Steve Capps-control pickup.

Thanks, Viktor
