Silvar Lake O-Meet
October 21,  2012
Meet Director: Lew Kidder

A stunningly beautiful fall day provided the backdrop for fall 2012 meet on the eastern part of the Silver Lake map. Blue skies, bright sunshine, and the absolute peak of fall colors made it a great time to be in the woods. Unfortunately, the course setter didn’t quite live up to nature’s perfection, putting one control on Red in a parallel reentrant and forgetting to hang another entirely on Yellow. Luckily, however, he had the foresight to bring a bunch of cookies, which apparently forestalled formation of a lynch mob.

The most interesting competition occurred on the Orange course. Team McLost led through five controls, with Jason Pasinetti just a few seconds behind. Both of the leaders made significant mistakes on #6, however, which left Ed O’Brien leading Dick Fortune by a mere 11 seconds. But each of the two new leaders made errors on the way to the very next control, which left the door open for Jess Franklin. Jess squeaked in front after #7, expanded her lead significantly with a good route to #8, and kept her margin safe to the finish in 1:23:02. A mere 26 seconds separated the next three finishers.

The entire Red & Green courses were electronically timed, and 13 of the 20 participants on Orange elected to do the same. Splits can be viewed here.

Thanks to Mark Voit, Pat Murad, Igor Guskov, and Karen McKeachie for help in retrieving the controls. Mary Joslin was invaluable as usual, doing the Yellow course and thenhelping with registration thereafter. Note: The meet director awarded a 15-minute time bonus to the competitors who did Yellow without knowing one of the controls was missing. Even then, that was probably less than the time lost wandering about in a search for something that wasn’t there.
