April 12, 2014 Cat's Meow Event

The annual Wisconsin State Championship event turned out to be quite an adventure. We were expecting heavy rain with temperatures in the mid 50’s. But instead the temperatures were much colder. Not only did we get thunderstorms and heavy rain, we also got hail.

Anthony once again set a good championship course which many people had trouble finishing. Glasses were fogging up and wet runners were getting cold. A few lucky people arrive early or late and were able to run with a lot less rain. The middle of the pack got hammered by the storm.

The event unfolded with an early starter setting the pace. Gregg P. laid down a time of 99:51 finishing just after 10am. The time was quickly beaten by Garrett who was the second to start the course and completed it in 86:06. Then the heavy rain hit and we started getting lots of people not finishing the course. Control 11 seemed to be the stopper for a lot of people. 11 was a long leg to the bottom of the map. I’m not sure if it was because it was hard to find or just that by 10 controls the wet and cold runner just had had enough.

The last chance for anyone to beat the 2 leaders was Kevin who showed up around 2pm and went out last. Running without a compass, he was able to complete the course just fast enough to edge out Garrett with a time of 81:28 to retain the title of State Champion!

Conditions were pretty bad out there. The course was very challenging technically. People were cold and wet. Did any of that matter? NO! It’s Cat’s Meow and some of the best orienteering terrain anywhere. There’s no such thing as a bad day on this map.

Thanks to Anthony and Brian for picking up controls.

29 people participated.
