Prairie Ridge Event, July 14, 2014

What a wonderful late afternoon and evening it was! The forecast was for partly sunny with a 50% chance of scattered showers. Some saw rain on the roads in Madison and even had some fairly heavy rain in town. But as I set up the course and as the event took place it was very pleasant with no rain falling at the park. We did however get a rainbow in the distance just as two participants were finishing their course successfully!

28 people went out on course and times were quite good. There were a few mistakes made out there, but mostly everyone did well. Because of that the finishing times were quite closely packed.

Jeff D. edged out Tony to win his first event! He credited a control pickup session with Kevin for helping out his technique. Let’s hope he continues to do well. If not, Tony will be ready to overtake him. Usually fast Christophe made a parallel error on a big hill that cost him plenty and dropped him down in the standings. Orienteering is not a very forgiving sport.

Unfortunately, this ends the summer series for 2014. Our next event is in September. Watch the website for more details as the date gets closer.
