Breakheart Reservation, Saugus, MA
May 12, 2018
Meet Director: Bo Nielsen

More than 75 orienteers ignored the less than ideal weather forecast to face the challenges of orienteering at the Breakheart Reservation. Still, in spite of the inclement weather and demanding terrain, I heard many appreciative comments on the courses so my impression is that most folks enjoyed the spring colors and varied orienteering challenges.

There was an unfortunate hiccup when a control on Green was picked up while we still had a runner out on the course. Dylan Hendrickson from MIT spent a good deal of time looking for that control and ended up as DNF in the results because of my error. I apologize, it should not have happened.

Then, a big thank you to all who volunteered their time today. To have such a fine crew of capable people who know what to do and when to do it makes a great experience possible for everyone, the meet director included. Bud O'Leary, Dorina Nimigean, and Sylvie Guichard made the registration run smoothly while Jim Paschetto handled the timing aspects with his usual expertise. Bud O'Leary did a wonderful job providing boy scout merit badge counseling, and at the end of the day Alex Vai, Justin Wiley, Pia Kivisakk and Jim Paschetto assisted with control pickup which made this task very manageable.

All the soaked equipment was tightly packed into Jim's car by the time the rain starting pouring, but no need to worry - it will be dry and ready in time for the next NEOC event - I hope to see you there!
