Night-O at Coal Hollow on Friday the 13th turned out not to be unlucky! No one broke a leg or tried to choke the course director, so it was a great success! Rachael smoked the field! (As expected) The course was a little different. It was an out and back so everyone ran the same course.... just in a different order. This caused a little confusion as two people would start out in the same direction and then would split off to a different controls. Coal Hollow is about the right size for a night-O and this was sufficiently tough. A special shout out to Gary and Maureen Shepard. This was their first meet! They did have a slight advantage of knowing the park since they live close by but never having done orienteering before did put them at a little disadvantage. They still pick up 5 controls! Also, a welcome to Bill Larkin who came from New Hampshire for the meet! Well he was in town for a meeting with me at Caterpillar but he came out and give a great showing at Orienteering. He got all the controls except the last one! In his defence, the next day I found it laying on the ground so he can use that to justify his Dnf!
Everyone had a good time and a little sweaty so on to Robinson in August. See you there!
