Results for Radio Orienteering Nov 12, Umstead South

Eight competitor groups (ten individuals) participated in the 80m classic course competition on November 12. Everyone located all the controls on their course, and no one was OT! That is especially impressive because it was the first time on a standard course for three of them. All the first-timers were graduates of Nadia Scharlau’s beginner classes. Congratulations to all.

We had a perfect day for orienteering and exploring the streets (and quite literally, the backwoods) of Cary and Morrisville. Thanks to everyone who came, it turned out to be a fun event.

Fox-chase Score-O results

It was a great day for being outside. The event went well and everybody seemed to have fun. Of course, people got lost, and had to repeatedly chase “the fox” (aka Tanya and me). Some people even managed to ran out of the map :). Next time maybe we should switch direction of the “fox” […]
