Reflect-O meet results

Wednesday, August 16, 2017
Mirror Lake Middle School

After an afternoon downpour that nearly drown the meet director while setting out the White and Yellow controls, the skies cleared for the 50 orienteers who view the glass as half full, put aside thoughts of wet feet and hypothermia, and dove into the beautiful, but still dripping forest near Mirror Lake Middle School.

Many thanks to Mike Robinson for vetting course designs; Paul Brusseau for spending long hours field-checking control locations and hanging the remote Orange, Green, and Red controls; Andy Olnes for field-checking the White and Yellow courses and bringing snacks; Curtis and Cayden Townsend for helping set up and man the start/finish tables, and for retrieving White and Yellow controls; Brian Kirchner and Anne Billman for retrieving the remote Orange, Green, and Red controls; Chris Tomsen for impromptu beginner training; Eklutna, Inc. and the Anchorage School District for use of their property; and special thanks to Diana Evans for helping with many tasks and supporting the meet director’s obsession with getting things “just so.”

APU Score-O Results

Wednesday, August 2, 2017
Alaska Pacific University

Despite the rain and soggy brush, 75+ people came out to APU for a 790 point Score-O. Participants were given 1 hour to find as many controls as possible. Controls were worth 10, 20, 30, or 40 points depending on the difficulty to get to and/or find. Participants were penalized 10 points per minute if they finished after 1 hour. Ian Moore beat all other orienteers by collecting all but 20 points without penalty. Peter Oswald and Gary Snyder tied for 2nd with 670 points. Brittany Hippe lead the women with 440 points, while Randy Plant and Yukiko Hayano won the team competition with 320 points.

Thanks to Erik Carlson for volunteering to host the meet and volunteers Corrie, Lexi, Gary and Regan for helping with various support tasks. These meets would not be possible without the tremendous time given by volunteers.

July 26th, 2017 Meet Cancelled

Bear alert signThe Orienteering Club has decided to heed the warnings of experts as reported yesterday in the Alaska Dispatch News and cancel the upcoming meet at Far North Bicentennial Park. The safety of our participants is always our first concern. Unfortunately, orienteering meets take a tremendous amount of time to plan and set up, and it will not be possible to move to a new location on this short of notice.  We are sorry and hope you will be able to join us on August 2nd at APU.
