Halfmoon Lake O-Meet
May 5, 2013
Meet Director: Lew Kidder

The good news from Halfmoon Lake involved weather & bugs. Good in the case of the former (warm & sunny), even better for the latter (no mosquitos or deer flies). The bad? Well . . . . we could start with the green areas. With the invasives are doing their thing (I,e., spreading aggressively) and the spell of mild weather causing their leaves to pop, visibility & navigability dropped precipitously. This map is quickly becoming one that should be used only in early spring or very late fall.

Nearly 40% of entrants opted for the Orange course, with Jason Pasinetti being the lone person to break the hour barrier on the 3.2K, 9-control course. The father-daughter team of Chris & Klara Schmidt zipped around the Yellow course in just over 40 minutes, then decided they’d try the Orange as well. 93-minutes and change later, they were back and smiling. It was their first success at that next harder level.

This was not the best day for the veteran, should-know-better race director. First was a complete brain freeze on the opening control for Red & Green. Long story, short: It was not where it should have been. That severely compromised, to say the least, the first five to start on those courses – my apologies to Ali, Mike Ryan, Oleg, Mike Keating, and Bill P. But a special thanks goes to Ali, who not only found the control where mis-hung, but ran back out after finishing her race and moved it to the proper location.
