Meet results



Hot times, summer in the city..., and in Busse Woods North for a sunny, humid day of running through the forest.

We registered 236 people for this meet, including enthusiastic groups from Leyden Township High School, Boy Scouts, and the Bridge Youth Advocacy Program, who had success and fun on the white course. The beginners' clinics and advice, offered by Jim Marshall and Kyle McNerney, were well-populated all morning, and several newcomers who tried their first white course decided to go out a second time for a greater challenge on the yellow trails. We look forward to seeing many of these faces returning at future events!

The advanced courses seemed to prove a challenge to a lot of competitors, as there were a number of DNFs as well as mispunches for red and green runners. Maricel Olaru claimed top honors on the red course, narrowly edging out his closest competition, Valentas Totoris, by a mere eight seconds.

Thanks go out to the many people who came together to make a successful day of orienteering. Drew Bolda, Kathy Bullard, Nicholas Favale, Tom Favale Jr., Thomas Favale III, Jeff Markus, Jim Marshall, Clark Maxfield, Tim McMahon, Kyle McNerney, Joe Sackett, Joseph Sackett III, Charlie Shahbazian, and Jeff Shaw all gave of their time to make the event run smoothly.

Just a note to everyone who enjoys the challenges and excitement of our CAOC meets:

Our organization functions solely by the efforts of dedicated volunteers. Please consider giving a couple of hours of time before or after your run as a volunteer at the registration desk, start/finish table, or picking up controls. It's a great way to get to know more orienteering faces, and pick up on some orienteering tips as well. Everyone is welcome—we love training new faces in the various duties, and can find something that will suit anyone's interests or abilities. For more information, or to say "Yes, I'll help!," drop an e-mail to the president or vice-president. Thanks in advance!
