The area received a lot of rain during the previous week, and the park official allowed me to start placing controls in the woods only 24 hours in advance of the competition. As it was, there was heavy rain on Friday through 1 pm Saturday. So I set out both the Yellow and Orange courses then some of the Red, finishing Red and Green on Sunday. I was hoping Red or Green runners could set out the White controls while I was out doing the longer courses.
In hindsight, the Yellow course would have been better accepted if I had used flagging tape to highlight the indistinct trail.
Special thanks to: Mary Joscelyn for registration; Pat Murad as time keeper; Lynn Leannais as nurse, and Igor Guskov, Rick Waldo, Tom Lee, Chuck Newman, and Lew Kidder for control pickup. At least the rain held off until just before they got out of the woods.
So for a day of orienteering we had a great Mother's Day.
