What is the course information for all of the courses, both Saturday and Sunday?
Feb 11, 2019 7:04 PM # 
Course information will be posted later today or tomorrow.

Hope you get a break with the weather
Best wishes to all teams competing especially the five from Florida (four Area 7 and one Area 12).
What a venue!
Clare, your map has been legendary for 20 years now.

Course information is now accessible through the official event website.

We are expecting heavy rain Thursday and showers on Friday. Saturday should be great weather, but we could have more showers on Sunday.

Be prepared. Vasquez Rocks is usually windy, so expect the rain to be horizontal.

30 competing units!

Is there a live feed for results available?
Feb 16, 2019 9:23 PM # 
Itzel, I'm dying to know, too. But I guess it is something we should have asked earlier as everyone connected with the event is probably out in the park right now.
But not many orienteering clubs have a Blaik Mathews in their midst so live feeds are a long shot.

@gordhun - can you clone him?

By the way, would the results go to the club's website or the NJROTC one?

No live results. We had some technical issues today getting all the displays working, but eventually got it figured out. Western Race Services is calculating the team scoring and will be posting splits to Attackpoint and then sending me the results files to post on LAOC site and they will also be sent to Troy.

Only one Blaik Mathews exist and he have him hehe! Go Florida! And yes the results are on the official page.

Are the Sunday and overall results posted somewhere else?
Split times are very telling. What the heck happened with so many at control 10 on the varsity male course on Saturday?
Feb 18, 2019 5:18 PM # 
Where are the results from yesterday?
Feb 19, 2019 1:13 AM # 
Asking the same thing
Feb 19, 2019 2:38 AM # 
A combination of miscommunication and an LAOC public event at Vasquez today delayed the results posting. We're working on it now.
Feb 19, 2019 2:44 AM # 
Combined results and overall results are now posted at the LAOC site.

Thank you for posting the results AND the course maps.
It puzzles me why so many cadets had so much trouble. The courses look straight forward.
I looked at that Saturday Green course #10 which gave so many so much trouble trouble. Seemed pretty simple if you enlarged the control by finding the ridge first.

Without having actual tracks I can only hazard a guess. I watched runners leaving the start for a short while on Saturday. It was apparent that most were not reading the brown. They were bouncing from rock to rock, hoping to stumble on their control. I think it's very easy on this map to get suckered into thinking you're going to navigate off of the rocks. But there are far too many parallel cliffs for that to work. Best guess is that a lot of kids didn't go far enough south and were looking in the terrain north of the cliffs instead of on the ridge. If you were in the right place, that was a highly visible control.
Feb 20, 2019 1:59 AM # 
I learned on Monday morning that there was actually a misplaced control on Sunday. This was control 102 (#2 on Orange A and #3 on Orange B). The control had been placed at a tag that was for our public White course for Monday. The original tag was still in place at the intended control location, but it said 202 (since it was a day 2 control). It looks from the splits like this may have caused a few top competitors to lose a few minutes. I'm just surprised that no one reported it. We had no complaints or protests. It's hard for me to believe that someone didn't realize that wasn't the mapped/described position. Perhaps they just felt that it didn't cost them enough and it would be better to keep the courses valid?

I've been to that place. It's really hard.
Feb 20, 2019 4:14 AM # 
I second that. Nothing easy about VR.
