Granite Bay, Folsom Lake State Recreation Area

May 2, 2010


By Paul Keeton, Meet Director 

The event started off early that Sunday with a big surprise. The gate to the North Granite Bay area was locked, due to the high water of the lake. That meant no one could drive to the Doton's Point area where we had planned to have starts, finishes and the White and Yellow courses. 

After several conversations with park personnel, it was determined that the gate would remain closed, necessitating the cancellation of the two beginner courses, White and Yellow (it was way too long a walk there for beginners). We apologize for those who were disappointed and hope you will try another of our meets (see the Schedule page).

Some people probably went home when told of that cancellation at the park gate. However, the majority of the participants who decided to come anyway therefore had to do the intermediate course, Orange. It was quite a challenging exposure to the sport of Orienteering for first-timers! 

I think that everybody had a good time, with no major difficulties. Things went smoothly, thanks to the help of all of the volunteers. Without them, these events would not take place. The Course Setter did a great job in setting good, challenging courses and in leaping to the challenge of reworking Orange, Green and Red on the spot to completely change the start and finish.. The weather cooperated, and everybody had a fun day.
