Orienteering 1:00:00 [2]

Today was the day! The first official/unofficial event of Grizzly Orienteering at Pattee Canyon. We had an amazing crew of helpers: Will helped hang flags; Tyra, Siri, and Caroline provided awesome beginner instruction; Ashley did a shift at the start; Darrell and MB did start and finish; Alden Wright of the Rocky Mountaineers helped with publicity; GSwede made the base map; and Alli coordinated the setup of the entire thing, helped make the event flyer, got all the snacks and Covid provisions, and made sure that everything ran smoothly.

I typically stress out when I am putting on events, but thanks to our awesome crew, I did not feel stressed at all during the day. We staggered arrival times to avoid any semblance of crowding, and it worked really well. We ended up with 22 beginners, 6 experienced orienteers, and 8 family members for a total of 36 orienteers. Very pleased.

We had no punching - we can think about adding that once we are more established and have less Covid. We did offer UsynligO as an option, and one of the beginners successfully used it!

A full update with maps and results coming soon.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [2]

Missoula orienteering weekend!

In order to lure folks from Seattle, Spokane, and Bozeman, I promised several orienteering opportunities this weekend, including a new map for Will, bringing our total to three legit forest maps, one park map, and half a sprint map.

The first outing was at Blue Mountain. I went out and hung streamers for Alli and John Harbuck, and designed a different course for Will. I like Blue Mountain! This is easily my favorite area here so far.

Next on the menu was the night-O for the Bozeman crew and Will. This was on the Playfair Park map, right next to the house. This is a nice little park for some simple orienteering, and it works well for night-O. I have field-checked about a third of it to update the nice basemap that Gord made for me, but it obviously still needs work.

Tyra, Siri, Caroline, Ashley, and Will all did the whole course, managing to avoid collisions with the many deer roaming in the dark. None of the controls were stolen, so I was pleased.
