What a nice meet! That is stated not boastfully. Our sport focuses
on enhancing the enjoyment public park lands offer; using the park
lands as a game board. Good weather, jolly enthusiastic experienced,
and not so experienced, participants, knowledgeable helpful volunteers,
a wonderful preserve just starting to Spring blossom, all centered
around an organized activity, Orienteering.
It was day a for family and friend watching for example: The best
competition of the day on the advanced course (Red) was turned in
by the Naess family, father and son, Oivind and Jan Eric; a fun
generational competition to watch. It was nice to see the three
generations of Team Larsson out beaming on their way through the
woods. The Markhams steadily making their way around a course their
Papa had designed. First-timers included at least two father and
young son teams who may also have completed both the White and Yellow
courses. The joy shown by a group of family/friends - Data Folks
Pry - who were first-timers, as they completed the intermediate
skill level Orange course. What a nice day!
And, of course, thanks to the volunteers who helped make the meet
