Southern Michigan Orienteering Club



Crooked Lake O-Meet
October 2, 2011
Meet Director: Mark Voit

Volunteers: Jens Christiansen, Megan Donahue, Jess Franklin, Karl Johnson, Igor Guskov, Pat Murad, Sebastian Voit, Rick Waldo

Hope the three preceding days of rain didn't keep you away. Everyone who showed up to Crooked Lake enjoyed a beautiful October Sunday. Many people found out that the swamps were quite full, but your meet director can report that his feet did not get wet once while he was hanging control flags. (The meet director's wife maintains that the meet director got away with this by using special secret knowledge of all the best marsh-crossing points.)

People on the Red and Green courses described them as challenging. Igor Guskov weathered the challenges most successfully, finishing in 87:38, and Matt Johns was first (by two seconds!) on Green.

Apologies to those on the Orange course who were confused by the typo on the clue sheet. Control #6 had the wrong code and description. The most experienced orienteers recognized that the control they found right in the middle of the circle must be the correct one, even though the code was not what they were given. If you spent a lot of time looking for another control point in that area with code 35, well, at least the weather was nice.

Everyone who started on Yellow and White found all the controls. Steve & Grace Garrison blew through the Yellow course in 43:17, while Mary Joscelyn and Pat Murad brought volumes of orienteering experience to bear on the White course, taking the victory in 44:38.
