Lake Evergreen Canoe-O - Aug 18, 2018

George Mattson hosted our Canoe-O on Lake Evergreen in Kappa, IL. While rain is normally a problem for orienteering events, in this case we could have used a lot more leading up to the event. Dry weather caused the lake level to be low, which made for some rather interesting checkpoints, especially on the hard course where participants had to get out of their boats and wade through thick mud to get to a point. Hopefully nobody sacrificed any sport-sandals to the muck. The weather during the event was perfect though, with only a slight breeze to contend with occasionally. Overall we had 28 participants come out and enjoy a day on the lake.

Thanks to George for hosting the event and Brian Lowry for helping pick up controls. Results are below:
