Mississippi Bar

Oct. 21, 2017

By Mats Jansson, Event Director and Course Setter

It turned out to be an almost perfect fall day for orienteering out at Mississippi Bar last weekend. Seventy-three navigation sports enthusiasts came out to sample one of the five courses offered. The rain that swept through on Thursday softened the ground and grass enough to make it that much more enjoyable.

Carson High School drove across the summit to join us, and the NJROTC students/cadets showed impressive performances, taking first place on all courses where they participated (Yellow, Orange and Brown); Commander Daniel Ingram is surely doing something right with that team!

A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers (in no particular order):

  • Jennifer Kerr: Setup and Beginner clinics
  • Frank Slattery: Setup
  • Teresa Jansson: Registration
  • Kathy Tegtmeier: Starts
  • Mike Christenses: Finishes and Control Pickup
  • Ryan Zahner: Finishes
  • Dwight Freund: Control Pickup
  • Ken Hodge: Control Pickup and Breakdown
  • Jonas Libell: Breakdown

As a side note, we apologize for the lack of restrooms close to the event center. In years past, the state park has kept a port-a-potty in the parking lot; for some reason it was no longer there (there was one in the horse parking area). Hopefully, the park folks will bring back the bathroom service for the lot where most non-horse people park for next time we visit the park.

We hope to see you at Granite Bay on Sunday, Nov. 19! Until then…
