Meet location: Spring Mill

Date: November 12, 2006

Director: Rick Waldo

Juha Heinonen came back in an astounding 67+ minutes on the 7.7 km Red course to take the club championship. I guess he wasn’t fazed at all by the prairie meadows (some of the runners said the novelty of it made for a little hesitancy). "Comeback Kid of the Year" Lew Kidder had an outstanding time on the Green course.

There were no female solo finishers above the yellow course. That was a little disappointing, as was the relatively light turnout (about 65). I wonder if we have to think of a different name for the club championships event so as not to scare off non-club members, even though the website indicated "all welcome".

Thanks to all who helped out. My wife Mary Beth and son Daniel helped at registration. Mark Fochesato, Pat Murad, Dennis Elston, Jess Franklin, and Karl Johnson picked up controls. Especially noteworthy: Linda Aimee, first time orienteer (went out on both White and Yellow courses), helped pick up several controls.
