A cool sunny day – just right for orienteering. 2017 JROTC provided its usual mix of competition and chaos, 103 JROTC teams from 10 schools, SOME who did not pre-register – luckily Craig managed to make sense out of the mix ups and calmly got everything into the computer.
There was a total of 182 actual starts, including non JROTC, comprising 285 people who strained the capacity of the carpark and Nature Center. As usual Ann and her staff did a fantastic job of helping with preparation and registration – and still found time to explain that the animal in the cage that looked like a black wig was actually a rare strain of rabbit!
Many thanks to Paul Bisset and Craig for helping with set out of controls, Craig on computer, Betsy and George for staying outside in the cold all morning to provide instruction to the cadets, Paulo, Daniel and Bob for manning the start and provide more instruction, Jeff for helping out on registration and Bob, Kesenyia and Jeff for picking up controls (+ Paul who was out on Sunday to get the final 4).
We got thanks from some of the team leaders/instructors, one of whom said “our kids don’t get much of a chance to get away from town and experience the woods – they thought it was a blast” .
