Despite an ominous start to the day from a weather perspective Saturday ended up being a great day for orienteering at Yellowwood. By now everyone is aware of how hilly this property is but we may have all underestimated the impact of the wet and slippery terrain when combined with all those hills made for a very challenging day!
A huge congratulations to all the runners that braved the woods!
We'd like to thank Rob and Aiden Minto for designing the courses for this meet, Jerry Lyons and Mike Garrison for setting the courses and directing, and Rob, Aiden, Jerry, Mike, Brenda Blacklock and Wangki Yuen for clearing the course. Now that the club is running an electronic punching system we need to get the controls pulled the day of the meet and this is no small feat at a property like this!
Results summary is below, if you would like to see all the control to control splits (and you should, it's pretty cool) the HTML file is at the bottom of the page.
Thanks to everyone for coming out!
