Coon Bluff Score-O, White
What a great day for our first event of the season! After months of summer heat, we
finally had a mild day. The high temperature for the day was in the low 80's. We
couldn't have asked for a better start to our orienteering season. Thanks everyone
for coming out and making the day a success.
Coon Bluff has been the site of many interesting Score-O events. Today was no
exception. Forest set a course that was challenging, but not so challenging
that a few of the participants couldn't get all controls. Ludwig Hill from our
sister club in Tucson
once again showed his deceiving speed and led the pack by clearing all controls
in under 1:40. The Tucson club was well represented for the day with all members
clearing the course under the time limit. We even threw Jeff Brucker a curve
ball by giving him a master control map rather than the Score-O map. Jeff
proceeded to go out and clear
not only all of the Score-O controls but also many of the White course controls
too. Good Job Jeff! On the female side, Laura Wasylenki went out and grabbed
over half the controls in under the time limit. The elevation gain at Coon Bluff
is extensive, so getting half the controls is a great achievement.
The day also brought out a lot of teams, including many
of our friends from the adventure racing circuit. In addition to a number of
Phoenix teams, we also had a team from Sedona and two from Prescott. Thanks to everyone
for coming out. Our reward for
setting the courses is seeing you all come out and have a good time.
We also need
to recognize first-time orienteers Ron Pedersen and his son Ron. They had a lot of
fun figuring out how this orienteering thing works. The future of our sport lies in
getting new people to participate in our events. We hope to see the Pedersens and their
friends out there again soon.
Stay tuned for our next event coming November 9 at Lake Pleasant. It should be
another great orienteering day in Phoenix.
Thanks to all the volunteers. We cannot have meets

# Honorable Mention: Jeff Brucker was accidentally provided with a map
marked with all Score-O and White course controls. His performance
for the day may likely have been better had he been provided with
the proper map.
