Six Mile Mini Rogaine (Score O)             June 19, 2005

I hope that everyone had some enjoyable moments out on the Six Mile map on Sunday. The weather certainly was much more suitable for orienteering and rogaining than the previous days! I  apologize for not having water out on course and no refreshments at the finish. I was a little pressed for time in getting the event organized.

The event proved valuable for me in preparation for the upcoming North American Rogaining Championships. It's the first time that I've used the SportIdent Score O software. I did have a couple of minor glitches, both of which were my own fault. The event database and SI unit programming was originally done on my desktop computer. I ensured that the time was sycronized to my watch and my desktop computer. It always pays to have a second set of eyes checking during the SI programming session as well. I didn't. Unit 71 was incorrectly programmed as Unit 67. That was the minor glitch. I completely forgot to sycronize the times when I imported the database into my laptop. When I reprogrammed the Start station for an early start it picked up the incorrect time from the laptop. When I did the start countdown at the beginning of the event the start unit time was a good minute behind my watch time. Quite a few competitors started slightly before 12:00 noon. The software was programmed to allow starts only after 12:00 noon. Both glitches have been corrected in the results. If you see any other corrections needed let me know.

From some of the comments I heard after the event, I wasn't the only one to have a few challenges! Under the pressure of competition, dehydration and hunger, not too mention a hangover, we sometimes make mistakes. Sometimes we end up punching the same control at different times during the same event. Top of of hill. Oh... they were supposed to be two different hills! Valuable learning experience. Did anyone "go off the map"? Look for unusally long split times between controls.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Tony Whittaker and Lyn Stoltze from Perth, Western Australia. All the best in your travels around western Canada. It was good to see some returning orienteers out again. Nathalie was back after a "few" years break. I hope that you and Leslie had some positive moments during your day. Rob and Susan, Jud and Evan, welcome back. 

Dan and Steve get the leniency awards. They we're the only competitors to go over time, but were determined to get as many controls as they could. Dan ran out of time with only 2 controls to go!

Thanks to those who took time to help the newer less experianced people. We welcome your thoughts and comments about how we can keep you interested in orienteering.

Special thanks to Kevin (and Ryan) who helped set the course on Saturday and to Jennifer, Alan, Frances and Ernie for helping pick up controls after the event.

I know I'll see some of you at the Gold Rush Trail, Canadian Orienteering Championships. Others at the 2005 North American Rogaining Championships and hopefuylly the rest at our "C" events in the fall starting with Marie-Cat's "Hamilton Corrals" on September 11, 2005.

Have a great summer!
