With weather cooperating, about eighty competitors turned up for the Silver Lake meet. Green and Orange courses seemed to be popular choices. Competition was tough on Red, and on Orange the second and fourth places were separated by mere ten seconds. Tony Maletich made it a "double sprints" day and skewed the results on White and Orange courses by winning both of them.
Several competitors on advanced courses reported problems near control 12 on Red (same as control 10 on Green). The problem was an unmapped heap of stones on the terrace halfway between the trail and the control.
The meet would not be possible without great help from Tom Lee who helped set up the courses and handled the registration. Jess Franklin gave great tips on map preparation and organizational details.
Control pickup went smoothly thanks to Alan Oprsal, Boris Avdeev, Brian Ross, Alan Baljeu, and Tom Lee.
