Baldwin Hill, Ashburnham, MA
November 8, 2015
Meet Director: Magnus Bjorkman
Another beautiful fall weekend in New England. Early forecasts were for a somewhat chilly morning, but the sun came out and led to a very pleasant day for orienteering. With all the leaves on the ground it was somewhat challenging following the trails, and traction climbing the leaf covered hills was elusive, but the visibility and orienteering was otherwise great! Magnus Björkman did an excellent job setting the courses. Wendy Johneckeck, Ian Finlayson, and Pia Webb ran the meet with the ever-present help of Jim Paschetto on the finish laptop, and Mark Webb showed up, did what he was told, and ate most of the cookies.
We had about 65 runners with some hailing from as far away as Alaska and Oxford University (in the UK). We had some novice orienteers that had so much fun that they went out for a second course. Some of the seasoned orienteers ran longer courses than normal, perhaps in preparation for the super long Blue Hills Traverse coming up two weeks from now.
Thanks to Mika Latva-Kokko for taking all of the meet equipment off our hands so we wouldn't have to drive back to the Burlington storage facility.
Thank you, Mark Webb
