I would like to acknowledge some of the workers who supported me in setting the courses for the sprint:
Carl Childs - vetter who spent a lot of time sending me feedback regarding control locations, providing me with pictures of areas that I had not visited on my trips to the campus; visiting and marking all of the control sites;
Mary Jo Childs - model event plus helping with relay map organization and many other tasks that needed doing;
J-J Cote - course consultant plus putting out controls, setting up relay chutes and supervising the relay handoffs;
Lex and Pete Bundschuh - pre-running courses, setting up and taking down the chutes on the Green, working the finish to collect (and guard!) the maps;
Ed Despard - technology, Relay Guides;
Valerie Meyer - timing and results, a calm presence to ramp down the anxiety level;
Mark Dominie - mapping, map printing, map stuffing, and double checking everything; organizing control set up and pick up; making control stands;
Barb Dominie - map stuffing, packet prep, and, oh yes, registrar;
Rick Worner - pre-running courses, checking control sites, helping with numerous tasks and being my support throughout the past year.
Thanks to you, Linda, and to all the people you mentioned above! It was great fun!
I echo the thanks.
Great courses, Linda. Wicked route choices from the get-go!
