Columbus Day was a great day for orienteering, unseasonably warm and hazy, with the fall color at its peak. There was a strong turnout of over 40 people, most of whom opted for either the white or green course. This was my first attempt at course setting and meet directing (and Bruce's second), and while there were a variety of minor glitches, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. It was nice to finally get to meet many of the club members I have previously only encountered out on the courses. A highlight was hearing the kids on the yellow course rave about the control we placed in the Mohawk River. I learned a lot, and look forward an even better meet next year.

Well, I erred in setting things up. This is what went wrong: the Clear, Start, and Finish boxes were set as controls 1, 3 and 4, not as Clear, Start and Finish. Considering the software, this mistake is easier to make than it should be, but is still inexcusable. I should have realized the problem sooner, as several people noted that the supposed "Clear" activity seemed to be happening too quickly; but, well, I didn't.

So, I once more apologize, and hope this error will be sufficiently embarrassing for me to never make it again.

The Good News is that because Start and Finish were set as controls, actual times were recorded on them. The Bad News is that because the Clear was also a control, those with full SI sticks (all of these are personal sticks, not Club rentals) coming into the event had little room for more data. Still, I think I have been able to reconstruct almost all split times for most people, and I have received some ancillary data from those who had their own timing devices to clean things up a bit more. The only data I don't have are the times to the Finish from the last control for some. If you see a time of 3:00 for the final leg, that is what I decided to plug in as a guess for everyone. Some may have been faster than that, but this does not seem to affect the final outcomes very much. You may still send in info if you see an error or have additional data, and I will get the table updated.
