Meet Director, Rossmoor Bar

Huge turnout all ready to go at 10.  Several Scout troops, JROTC, including a bunch down from Redding , several out-of- towners, many from BAOC.

Unfortunately some of the new folks slipped past before we could get them instruction, my apologies. 

Short on volunteers, but I'd already told several groups and individuals the meet was a "GO".  So figuring some of us could double up on jobs, we went ahead.  Ten minutes late getting starts going didn't help.  Luckily Dwight was able to help with Starts, after setting the courses all morning.  Jeff Thompson appeared just in time to get Finishes covered, and was joined by Stew shortly after.  The previously mentioned volunteers saw the massive pileup at registration, stepped in, learned fast and allowed Jennifer to show the beginners how it's done.  Then Starts were backed up.  Began with four-minute separation on the courses, but had to abandon that after a short time.

Many folks "shadowing" the kids/Scouts, glad they were there.

Unfortunately, this all resulted in many who wanted to do a second course not being able to do so. Once again, my apologies.

So I think I used up one of my nine lives Sunday.

Not all our meets are this crazy; we were just a couple of bodies short.  Next time I'll ask BAOC to send up a few warm bodies.

Many new to Orienteering, I wish I could have chatted with you all.  Our winner on White was new to "O"; must be a story there.

So volunteers make up all the Orienteering meets you go to.  Please consider giving up an hour or two so our volunteers can run a course.  Most of this stuff is EASY to do, and we are thrilled to show you how.
