Orienteer's Fate on the Rocks?

Mississippi Bar

Oct. 16, 2011

By Paul Keeton
Event Director

What a successful event! Everybody was having fun in the outdoors on a beautiful day. The temperature at 10 a.m. was a very pleasant 70 degrees F. Most of the participants were first-timers, and the JROTC from Rio Linda High School was out in full force. Hopefully everyone will return to our next meet, Sunday, Nov. 13, at Sacramento Bar.

Jennifer Kerr was the Course Setter and did an excellent job in setting courses from very easy to quite challenging. They provided a great way to view a beautiful area of the American River waterway, and to see some of its history.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers who made such a successful event possible. Without the volunteers, the event would not have happened.

The White course winner was Steve Bacon and family, with a time of 37:06, followed closely by Sal Sanchez's JROTC team, running White as a second course, with a time of 37:14. The winner on the Yellow course was Maureen Kunz, with a time of 41:44. GCO's Alan Walls was the fastest on the Orange course, turning in a time of 84:55. Michael Chastaine ran the Orange in a time of 53:56, but that was his second course. BAOC's David Harrison, 14 years old, was the winner on the Brown course, with a time of 74:16, with GCO's Marsha Jacobs in second at 85:43.

The Red course was hotly contested, with GCO's Jonas Libell winning in a time of 75:01, followed closely by BAOC's Steve Gregg with a time of 78:06. There were four others with finishing times under 90 minutes, including Stephen Harrison (David's father) and GCO's Dan Rathbun.

Congratulations to everybody who participated, and we hope to see you at our next meet. Thank you.
