2023 New Year’s Farsta results

Filed under: Event Results,Latest News by Imre Polik on January 2nd, 2023

About 40 orienteers decided to start the new year in the best possible way: by running a fun single-person relay course at Bond park in Cary. This has been a tradition for a long time: it was usually Josef Trzicky who organized these for us. Sadly, he passed away earlier this year, but his legacy of relays lives on.

Meet director Imre Polik holding the pre-race briefing

The forest was quite wet from the rain the day before, but otherwise it was very open and inviting. The meet director decided to compensate for the openness by placing the controls fairly low. This didn’t pose any challenge to the winner, Brendan Shields, who completed both laps in just over 34 minutes! Congratulations to him!

Everybody finished within the time limit and we even had time to chat over some cake and cookies. It was great to see some out-of-town people who came visiting for the holidays. Thanks to all who came!

Thanks to Dave, Paul, Ian, Matt and Silas for their help with control pickup. Special thanks to my brother-in-law for his help with logistics on the morning of the event.
