Hudson Highlands Nature Museum

Event Director’s Report

The local beginner’s event at Hudson Highlands Nature Museum on Sunday, September 11th was held on a gorgeous beginning of Fall day. 53 people participated in 31 starts on White, Yellow, and Orange Plus courses. Several tried more than one course. The help was wonderful! Big thanks to Carl from the museum staff who helped us get organized and then ran the registration table for most of the event. Bob Bullions, Bill Shannon, Geof Connor, George Hawes, Daniel Schaublin offered instruction to many small groups and also handled starts, finishes, results, and control pick up. Thanks to all! This was an “old fashioned” event. Maps were copied by the participants from master maps; we did not use electronic punching. I must say the orienteers did a good job drawing all those circles! We didn’t lose anyone (though one team went home without checking out at the finish. Please remember to check out before leaving so that we on the crew know everyone is out of the woods! Thankfully, they had filled out their registration card with the auto information, so we knew they had left.) Apologies for misspelled names; I did my best with what you gave me.
