Niskayuna Parks results are posted; club meeting overview

posted Jun 27, 2016, 1:36 PM by J N
Our annual club meeting was held; minutes will be posted on the Annual Meeting page (eventually). Among other topics was how we might spend some of the the Pine Ridge meet income.

One major change is that Janet Tryson has retired after 21 years as EMPO Treasurer (not a tedious or arduous job) and we've elected Cynthia Johnson of Berne as the new treasurer. Best of luck, Cynthia! Also important to note is that Glen Tryson is no longer the meet equipment manager; we've split equipment storage into three locations:
  • Phil Hawkes-Teeter will manage the local meet equipment as well as SI equipment
  • Bruce Beesley will store the National Meet equipment until needed (including some registrar equipment)
  • Will Kennerly will manage the String O equipment. If you are planning to attend a local event and will bring young children, ask will if he would bring this equipment and set up a String O course.

For now, Janet and Gabor will continue to share EMPO webmaster tasks, so if you see anything needing corrections or updates, please let one of us know via empire.orienteering at If anyone else has an interest in taking over please let one of us, or one of the officers, know of your interest.
