We had nine participants show up for the event, including some of the club regulars as well as first timers. The sun was shining and the temperatures were in the mid 70's - comfortable weather for orienteering. The controls managed to stay in place, despite the increasing winds. All participants discovered that the new Mingus Meadows map is one of rocky ground and occasional barbed wire fences, making it less a runner's course than a navigator's course. Despite the obstacles, Andy Wentzel did manage to clear the course with minutes to spare. Ron Birks and Eric Ringnes were not far behind, with scores greater than 900 out of 1000 points. Congratulation to them and thank you to all orienteerers for coming out and giving the new map its inaugural test run.
