Camp Scherman Training Weekend

Splits available here

Vampire order: Clare, Andrew, Sue, Terje, Teepen, Sue, Brad

A small cadre of orienteers spent a weekend in October at Camp Scherman honing their orienteering skills. This year the format was a little bit different with training activities being more of a smorgasbord . I offered a coaching clinic, which included learning to put on a training activity. Sue Dekany put out some activities for others as well as including hill repeats, line orienteering, and window orienteering. Andrew Tomlin assisted with a session on distance estimation and pace counting. And Rex Winterbottom filled out the time with progressive courses, physical conditioning, and tips tailored to each person's level.

Rex also set our nighttime Vampire-O course, which was extra scary this year due to the high incidence of injuries. Brad even ended up taking a trip to the emergency room after falling while trying to avoid getting Vampired. Luckily, everyone has recovered and is back to orienteering!

Sunday's event was the first in our Youth League and attracted a number of JROTC units, keeping the competition moving. Courses set by Terje Mogstad proved challenging for all. After spending the previous day running throughout the camp, the trainees had a distinct advantage, with Rex Winterbottom and Jacob Teepen winning on Red, and Orange respectively.
