Thanks to UNO and everyone else who provided a fine weekend of orienteering and good company.
I'd echo the thanks for a very nice meet that did all the stuff that mattered right. Having malt beverage available as a post-race refreshment was a nice surprise!
A question for UNO: it seems like the map for this meet covered less than half of the area of the very old original map. Are there plans to re-map more of the park?
Much less than half, in fact (and the original map didn't cover the entire park). I'm told that the new basemap covers the whole thing, though I don't know whether that means the whole of the old map, or the whole park (I'm guessing the latter). Looking at the original map, the rest of the area looks to be less intricate, steeper, and less green (in 1975, though the type of vegetation out there changes pretty rapidly).
Does the basemap have contour information that could provide 2.5m intervals, or at least form lines of some sort? The map was pretty sweet, but I did find myself wishing some of the detail in the flat areas were indicated.
Ian said something similar. I'm curious what areas you had in mind? It's not like there weren't form-lines. I noticed a couple of small issues with the map, but not this.
Thanks again to all. Great stuff!
Looks like John Hensley Williams is at WP now?
Great map + great courses + great event center (could even be considered an arena) + great dinner = Great Event
(Great weather too, but not under organizers' control)
Fun weekend. Thanks to all the organizers, course setters, results crew, food team, malt beverage supplier (Yippee!)
Malt beverage supplier? (Ivy League party? :-) ) Did that require park approval?
(I don't think it would fly in NY state)
Ditto all above! The refreshment tent was a class act. BTW said beverage was served in a tasteful "soda receptacle" - is that a loophole?
Park approval, huh? This is NH - live free or die. I don't think a park official came within 1/2 mile of the staging area either day. More Bear Brook mapping is being pursued. I'll post a few adjacent base jpg's - they show considerable complexity. Close to 20sq k of base map exists. The past weekend was less than 5 sq k. There's terrain where one can boulder bash indeed.
That big tent was a most welcome amenity that provided shade from the sun -- but could have also provided shelter from rain.
Here is one of 15 jpg's for BB showing some complex terrain:
