Rain Didn’t Stop Us Today – Advanced Event on Jan. 4, 2009

Filed under: Latest News by Joseph on January 4th, 2009

We squeeked by with the weather today at the Advanced event at Umstead Park.  The rain let up, and we only had a short light shower during the event.  We had the start and finish at the amphitheater, but since no one was using the shelter, we hung out there.  We are working around some technical problems with the download box, so results may not be in the same format.  While we were trying to work around the download box problems the printer battery got low and we began having printer problems, but of course it was not obvious as to what the problems were.  We finally put the charger on the printer and at least solved that problem.

The courses were challenging so the Orienteering was first class despite the electronic problems, and it is the trek through the woods that we come out for.  There may have been a 70 meter error in one control that may have been set on the wrong depression.  The area was open enough that it didn’t cause too much lost time.  We will have a final determination later when we get the report from the event directors.
