The weathermen were right for a change – the rain cleared by morning but the winds were still howling. That made the depressions into lakes. It was much calmer in the woods than the open registration area. But we had a great turn-out for what felt more like winter than spring. I appreciated all the help from fellow UNO members.

Ed and Liz Kotowski came early just to hang controls. Darrell Scott brought his bike to hang the far controls. Patti Miller and Alana Commons came early, hung controls, set up registration, worked all day, retrieved some controls, and helped me stay sane. Michael Commons brought Sarthak Giri, Simran Malhotra to help with registration all day. Paul Regan and Darrell Scott stayed to pick up the bulk of the controls.

An apology to those who stopped to look for the control that was replaced by a tent between my putting out a streamer on Thursday and Darrell trying to hang the control on Saturday. No one seemed to be home, so only a little time was lost. If you didn’t get the word, feel free to subtract a few minutes from your time in your head.

We had participants as young as age 1 and as old as 89. Many were from the Nashua area, but others came from Nova Scotia, western Connecticut, and the Boston area. Some went out in small groups – families, meet-ups, friends – that may not be properly named in the results. But you all know who you are.
