Mississippi Bar

Nov. 11, 2018

By Marsha Jacobs, Event Director

Weren't we lucky? The smoke from the devastating Camp Fire in Butte County threatened to cancel our event, but the skies were mostly clear when we arrived in the morning.

Jonas performed his much-appreciated magic in offering five creative courses that everyone seemed to enjoy. We love hosting the hordes of JROTC runners and they showed up from Carson City and Stockton again in strong numbers, as did local Sac State University students.

First on the White course was Greg Mandler at 21:29. Then Greg did his often-repeated performance by speedily running Yellow, then Orange, and then Brown courses, where he finally ran out of time when hitting the 1 p.m. closing time! David Stryker and teammate Ralph Colinga were first on the Yellow course with a time of 54:12. David and wife Carol are our newest GCO members, back to orienteering after a long break.

The Carson City JROTC runners dominated the Orange course, with Hayden Hold leading the pack at 50:44, and GCO member Gavin Malone in second. Martin and Elizabeth Jakobsson, from Ireland, gave everyone a lesson in fast orienteering, as Martin blew through the Brown course in 39:17, while Chris Paluch of the Carson City JROTC bested Elizabeth by only 6 seconds with his time of 46:18. GCO's Roy Malone was fastest on the difficult Red course at 86:51. Good job everyone!
