Pond Lily Lookout O-Meet

Meet Director – Lew Kidder

The steady, cold rain, which persisted into mid-morning on Sunday, evidently convinced a number of orienteers to spend the day in more comfortable surroundings. But the relatively modest field of 47 people who actually made their way to the traditional staging area on Green Road were rewarded with dry weather and even some eventual sun.

Chuck Newman and Pat Murad battled back and forth on the greenish orange course all day, with Chuck eking out a narrow margin of 1:41 at the finish. But a few minutes later, David Ives sprinted across the line and lopped 29 seconds off the existing standard. Tina Thompson, doing her first event solo, was a strong fourth. “And I beat my husband,” she noted. Of course, husband Joe was on the longer red course . . . but a win is a win.

Mark Voit made short work of the red course, dashing around the 6.7K layout in about 8.5 minutes/kilometer. That’s impressive, especially when you consider that 200 feet or so of the course was across a rather innocuous looking marsh that actually involved water up to his hips. But it just goes to show that not only is a straight line the shortest way between two points, it is often the fastest (if not the most pleasant) as well.
