Folsom Lake
Early Morning on the Folsom Lake Beach

Granite Bay

Dec. 14, 2014

It was a great turnout on a cool and crisp Autumn day with no rain! Everyone came up to beautiful Granite Bay on the shores of Folsom Lake.

It was a brand new map, made by Bill and Heidi Cusworth, who also set the courses. They did an excellent job! Everybody seemed to have a good time, which was due in large part by our corps of wonderful volunteers. We had a total of 137 orienteers, with many coming from Sacramento State, Scout Troops 136 and 1855, the Turlock JROTC, many from our sister club BAOC, and even orienteers from Chicago and New England!

The big news came from the very long (7.5km, 21 controls) Red course, where our own Mats Jansson finished first with an incredible time of 63:55! To put that into perspective, his time was faster than the winning times on both Brown and Orange courses, which were much shorter! Second place belonged to Misha Kreslavsky, of BAOC, with a time of 70:44.

Chuck Spalding of BAOC was first on the Brown course in a time of 67:13. Second place went to another BAOC member, Evan Custer, with a time of 74:37. First on the Orange course was Allen Brown of the New England Orienteering Club, in a time of 72:44. William Murphy, another BAOC member, was second with a time of 95:12.

GCO's Alan Walls claimed first place on the Yellow course, in a time of 36:56, followed by the team of Nicole Sholly and Kurt Kaunzinger in 41:59. The White course was won by Greg Mandler with a time of 19:31. BAOC's team of Dana and Zoe Shibley came in second in 23:41.

Congratulations to everybody who participated in this fun and exciting sport. Please check our website in the future for details of our 2015 season, with events in the Spring and the Fall. We would love to see all of you again! Thank you.
