First Water Score-O

It was a sunny day, beautiful. Before the race and temperatures were in the 70s and it was windy. Depending on where you come from, you could call it a steady breeze, but it was strong enough that we had to stake the tents down. During the race temperatures rose into the 80s and the wind went away. You could only find a bit of breeze on the ridges. It got a bit hot down in the washes and gullies. We had a good turnout, about 20 people plus the odd Park Ranger or two. We had several new participants. Welcome to Orienteering, we hope you enjoyed yourselves and will come out to upcoming events!

In a close contest, Ludwig Hill took first place, with Eric Ringnes finishing a close second. Maybe Eric was thrown off his game plan when, just as he was ready to start the race, we pressed him into service at the Timing Desk. Many thanks to new participant Chris Miller for helping with Setup/TearDown. We set a new world record for speedy Tear-Down, no official time was recorded but it must have been under 15 minutes.

If you're interested, here's a link to a map showing the routes of Ludwig Hill and Erik Ringnes. Only 10 points separated the two for first and second place overall. Great job guys! First Water Routes
