Meet Director's Report:

57 orienteers braved the hot, humid weather at the Urban-O meet. Although there were a few control cans missing (some still had the string), it did not seem to cause a problem for anyone. Only 3 people decided to stay out four hours on the bike course. Clark Maxfield took the strategy of skipping most of the 10 and 20 point controls and concentrating on the high pointers. He only missed three of the 30 through 60 point controls, came in one minute before the deadline and finished with 1720 points. Patrick Coneff and Mike Reese got nearly as many controls but not as many of the high pointers and finished with 1240 points. On foot, there were a variety of strategies used. Two teams used the train strategy, traveling to a distant station and working their way back to REI. That worked well for the team Lost Again who averaged 47 points for their 7 controls, best average for the day. The winners on foot were Mladen and Gorana Kolar who visited an amazing 25 controls for 845 points. Charlie Shabazian edged out Ben Jones for second. Ben visited more controls but Charlie picked up some high pointers to finish second 845 to 720.

Thanks to REI for providing us with an nice air-conditioned room for our start/finish area.
