Raccoon Creek State Park
Raccoongaine X  --- 6-hour
31 March 2019

Sunday was a serious contrast to the day before.  The temperature was in the 30's with a significant wind and snow flurries in the air.  Again we had excellent cooperation with respect to parking.  Again thank you to the participants for their carpooling efforts.

The 6-hour course was much the way it has been in the past.  There were 50 controls with 10 each having values of 10 points, 20 points, 30 points, 40 points and 50 points for a total of 1500 points possible.  There were 4 mystery controls (all 20-pointers).  The penalty for lateness was 11 points per minute.  None of the 6-hour course controls were the same as any of the 3-hour course controls of the day before.  Nevertheless, four teams punched at least one of the 3-hour controls.  In some cases, this took them a bit out of their way.  There were 78 teams registered for the 6-hour course; 70 of them actually started.

As he has done in the past, Brian Mayer ran away with the overall men's  top prize, scoring 1300 points, 280 more than his nearest competitor.  Another repeat winner was Olga Huber, scoring 970 points for the overall women's top prize, 160 points more than the nearest competitor and more than all but three men's teams.  There was a surprise winner (at least a surprise to me) in the mixed category.  GHOing Steady from the Veterans Mixed category was the overall winner with 730 points.  We don't often get anyone from the Veterans category winning an overall prize.

Just like Saturday, a lot of people volunteered to make the Sunday event possible.  Alexis Rzewski designed the courses and placed controls.  Dave Battista vetted the course.  Bert and Sandy Condie and Laurie Opila handled packet pickup.  Lee Bash, Joe Logan and Ryan Knecht directed parking.  Laurie Opila, Jen Livingston, Giuseppina Mecchia and Joe Logan prepared the food.  Joe Logan and Lee Bash checked people in as they finished.  Jen Livingston, Jerry Agin and Sydney Fisher picked up controls.  And Yaki Barak, Lee Bash, Alexis Rzewski, Jen Livingston, Laurie Opila and Giuseppina Mecchia helped in cleaning up Rec Hall.  Thanks to all of them.  Jim Wolfe handled registration, download and produced results; he also placed and picked up controls.

Also, thanks to our sponsors:  Dicks Sporting Goods for its gift certificates, Zanfel for the poison ivy cream and NoGo for the power bars.
