Meet Director's Report:
It was a lovely and breezy at Arie Crown. We had orienteering
clinics and specialized sprint courses for participants to practice
using handrails, collecting features, backstops, attack points,
pace counting, and more. If these sound more like furniture or sporting
goods to you, be sure to watch for future special clinics or attend
the beginner's clinic at any CAOC meet and ask about these techniques.
They make walking and running in the woods even more fun!
Special thanks to our volunteers who made it happen: Rob M., Deb
H., Michael G., Alan T., Eric A., Lidia H., Madeline M., Charlie
S., Rich G., Leonid S., Bruce M., Jeff P., Joe S., Patrick C., and
Ivan P. We'll see you again at the volunteer appreciation banquet!

For the training courses, the course setter (Michael Collins) reports:
The 12 controls that counted toward "Attack Points" were
71, 75, 76, 77, 62, 64, 72, 73, 74, 44, 38, 61. I found it interesting
that no one got all 12 controls, but quite a few people had other
controls that were not attack points.
Congratulations to Ben Jones for finding 11 attack points. It only
took him 82 minutes. ;)
The controls that were exactly 100 m from their signs were 80,
69, 83, and 86. The numbers in each set were sequential, so it's
very easy to figure out the scores on the pace-counting course.
Congratulations to Martin Schwetter on getting a perfect score
of 20! Dan Curley, Lisa McNerney, and Madeline McCarren only missed
