Pine Ridge Park
11 November 2018
It was a cold, sunny day with almost no wind, not a bad day for
orienteering. Participation was light, only 45 people and 24
starts. The low turnout may have been the result of the holiday
or the cold or the distance from Pittsburgh or something else.
Everyone seemed to have a good time; no one complained of having
any problems locating the controls. And no one seriously
complained about the pipeline and it mud and ridges.
Jim Wolfe was event director. He set a single 40-control score
course which had controls set at all skill levels. Participants
were divided into three classes (Newbie - total beginners and people
who had progressed no farther than the beginner course; Intermediate -
people who usually did the Novice and Intermediate courses; and Expert
- people who typically did the advanced courses). There was a
mass start at 11:30 after participants were allowed 30 minutes to study
the map. There were also about half a dozen people who started
after the mass start. Everyone was allowed 2 hours to find as
many controls as they could; control values varied from 5 points to 35
points for a total of 875 points. Only one person, Sydney Fisher,
reached the maximum number of points; no one else was close; and she
cleared the course with more than 10 minutes to spare.
Thanks to Eric Steinbring for helping set up. Thanks to Eric,
Andy Strat, and Tonya for handling registration. Thanks to Sherry
Shank for conducting instruction. Thanks to Joe Logan, John
Huffman, Naomi Jarvis and James Fenn for doing control pickup.
LEFT AT THE EVENT: ONE PAIR OF SHOES - anyone want to claim them?
Split times for a score course are not very meaningful; however, you can look at them here
Pine Ridge is the last WPOC event for 2018. Our next event will a
Ski-O event in January or (if there is no snow) Raccoongaine in March.
Watch for the schedule soon after the first of the year.
