October 15, 2016 Orienteering at Switzkill Farm, Berne, NY

It was a gorgeous day in the Hilltowns, and we had a very nice turnout of EMPO folks and others to make it very satisfying day for the organizers. All told, somewhere near 50 individuals participated, either in groups or individually. And even some of those did more than one course (but are only counted once). A number of entrants also took part in other aspects of the Fall Festival, and it seemed as though pretty much everyone had a great time.

Well, maybe except for a few who had difficulties on their courses. Still, while they were clearly frustrated, they seemed to have generally enjoyed the area and the experience. The clearing control in the northeast corner of the map (used only for the Red course) proved to be the most difficult, as some folks overshot in different directions, and ended up wandering off the map. Next most challenging was the small depression on the east side, prior to heading back up the hill. Some found the area confusing, with perhaps some contour bumps missing (and after the fact we discovered a contour line missing in this area; next map issue will include the corrected contour detail).

Also, the "Kids Course" (running from cone-to-cone) seemed to be well received. We may not be able to replicate this sort of course at all event locations, but we'll try to make something like this a more  usual part of what we offer.

Results are below. The data as downloaded did require some adjustments (primarily, some individual start times were completely wrong, and guesses were used instead). In another case, one participant had to take a time out to explain what was going on to interested hikers; but I could not figure out how make this adjustment. I don't think that any of my adjustments or non-adjustments made any difference in the relative results. If you see anything that you believe is wrong, please let us know.

Thanks to all those who attended, and SPECIAL THANKS to Cynthia for helping with placement and pickup, as well as being our on-site medic, and to Marty for conducting training and picking up most of the Orange/Green/Red controls.

See you in two weeks at Peebles Island!
