Meet Director's Report
Palos Hills North
May 7th

Gordon Pearce: Meet director
Natalia Deconescu: Course setter

There was an early morning drizzle that cleared up as the course was being set. Natalia was not able to attend, so Charlie and Maricel pitched in running and biking to get the controls out . The temperature was in the low 60s and the sky overcast with no wind. It was a nice day to run. A decent turnout of members and some new comers to the sport provided a steady flow at the registration and finish. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day.

The Palos area is one of my favourite because of the varied terrain. Nature and changes in area use proved challenging. Even the best runners had to pick through bramble and vines where the map showed clear areas. There were also a few trails that were not marked on the map.

I want to thank Yan, Natalia, Bill & Rena , Bruce & Valerie , Rich, Kathy, Paul , Michael , Joe, Maricel, Charlie, Oivind, Wangki, for all your help and patience.

People went out and came back safe, all the controls were accounted for and i didn’t crash the computer. ‘Nuf said?
