Yankee Springs O-Meet
October 6, 2013
Meet Directors: Mike Keating

The weather forecast was for possible torrential rains and thunderstorms with a flood warning issued for the area. However the day was not bad at all. There was light rain in the morning, moderate rain in early afternoon, and by the end of control pickup the rain had stopped, and there were patches of blue sky with the sun picking through. The fall color change was in process making the woods spectacularly beautiful even with the rain. Over 30 people showed came in spite of the forecast, and those people got 26 maps. The Miller family from the South Bend Indiana area dominated the White, Yellow, and Orange courses. Koert Miller, the youngest Miller competitor, was first on White. Salinda Miller, the next youngest Miller competitor was first on Yellow. Thurston Miller, the “oldest” of the Miller competitors, was first on Orange. Oleg Koptelov was first on Green. (Roddy Wares had a faster time and said she got all of the controls, but she evidently did not successfully execute the epunch at one of the controls.) Mark Voit was first on Red.

Special thanks to my wife, Mary Jean, for driving assistance while I was putting out controls and for helping with the meet registration. Control pickup thanks to Oleg Koptelov, Robert Messer, Alex Izzo, Rick Waldo, Jens Christiansen, Michelle Green, Barbara Niess-May, and Igor Guskov. Also special thanks to Igor for downloading the epunch results and putting them on line.
