Everything went so smoothly during the race (from a racer perspective, anyway). Great logistics, maps, no confusing directions. We had a blast and SO appreciate all of your work and Alpine Shop's taking over this race so our area didn't lose it.

Totally agree on the directing vs racing assessment :) Glad it went so well!

Congratulations on the successful event! I've only helped organize orienteering events, but it's still more stressful than people imagine. One secret is a lot of help for ancillary stuff so you can focus on the really important "must be correct" items.

Ditto on the smooth, excellent race comments!

...and never underestimate the value of good map paper. I noticed and appreciated it. Time well spent, in my opinion! :)

Thank you so much for all your hard work. WELL DONE.

for future reference, the map paper we used was HP Premium Choice Laser paper...32 lbs and 98 brightness. $20 for 500 sheets.

Yes, paper matters! That's the paper I've been using for laser copies. The inkjet version is also very good.
