Santa Fe Dam 2016

2016-01-10 Santa Fe Dam - Results We had over 200 people come out to Santa Fe Dam despite the recent rains. It ended up being an overcast, but perfect for orienteering day. JROTC units aplenty filled the courses. To avoid the long start lines that we experienced at Vasquez Rocks, we had two different Yellow courses - one for COOL and JROTC participants and another for everyone else. A few groups got the wrong maps, but it all seemed to work out in the end.

We also had a few epunch units taken from the controls. In situations like this, it's good to remember that every control stand includes a back-up pin punch. If you do not find an epunch unit or if it is not functioning properly just use the manual punch to make a pin punch pattern on your map. Then show it to the epunch crew at download to get credit for the control.

We also began search procedures for a late finisher. Please remember to carry a watch and be aware that we will start looking for you after three hours. You should report to the finish within this time, even if you do not find all of the controls.

LAOC and US National Junior Team Member Will Hubsch was in town and killed the expert course with a time just over a half hour. Elina Breton, another Junior Team Member visiting from New York, was close on his heels to take second place on that course. Orange was won by Troy NJROTC COOL member Alex Pham. He has built an impressive lead in the Junior Varsity COOL category. COOL Yellow winner was Lawrence Wang, also from Troy, and the standard Yellow winner was longtime LAOC Junior Charlotte Dekany. On White, newcomer Elder Morales of Santa Ana NJROTC whizzed through the course. I expect we'll see him moving up to Yellow at his next event.
