The weather was clear, but cool. The snow from the previous Friday had melted, and leaving only rare pockets of old snow in the coldest and shadiest spots. The trails were dry, but the water features were all high, making it necessary to find a bridge or get wet feet. We had a great turnout, and I was lucky to have so much help when I needed it.
Ed and Liz Kotowski came from sunny Florida just to hang controls. Gary Gallagher also came just to hang controls, and then hop away for his family’s Greek Easter.
Michael and Patti Commons came with chairs, tables, and food, and stayed all day to help with registration and instruction. Alana and Simran did an outstanding job of keeping calm with all the commotion of moving people through the registration process. Bob Lux came to help with instruction, and we gave lots of that.
We had about 60 participants, including club members from Sweden and Minnesota. Many went out in small groups – families, scouts, meet-ups, friends – that may not be properly named in the results. But you all know who you are.
Darrell Scott came to pick up controls, and Sam Levitin, Suzanne Wenger, and Rafael Frutos all helped with pick-up after their runs. Even Michael and Patti, Alana and Simran picked up a set of controls. We were all picked up, packed up, and driving away around 2 – which might be a record.
