I get a Google alert for the word "orienteering" and this article showed up today. Nice job. I hope the seniors appreciated your work.

Thanks Janet! Great to see Soupbone in his 15-seconds of fame! He looks great, and makes sense too.

But that control placement wasn't fair for Beginners...way too low!

Thanks Janet, first time I saw this. It was fun putting on an event in the town I learned about orienteering in the first place.

Hey Chi, the controls were fine and pretty visible for the "seniors"

Speaking as a 'senior,' it isn't spotting those low-hung is being too stiff to bend over far enough to punch!

Ok there were so visible... But if you are flexible to walk an O course, you should be able to bend down to punch them. With e punch they are on stands. Come on back and try them out at a local Chicago meet. Or we could of done the canoe O together.

Didn't you get DQ'd at the Canoe-O? For just paddling around in the middle of the lake, while Maricel ran the entire course on land?

Guess I should of had my GPS on.

Sounds like you and me when we did it, or Jim Hall and I on the Erie Canal area. I ran 3/4 of it. But I don't think that makes good canoe O. You have to have a bit of separation to make it more interesting. Kinda like in a Rogaine (-:

Are you going to be here on the 4th of July? Why not run Bob Richard's race with me?

That is the last race in Wyoming on July 4th, bummer I would of liked to do it.
