Below are the results from our event at Tawasentha Park on Saturday, June 4. With great foresight, we managed to fit it in quite nicely between a rainy Friday and a rainy Sunday.

From Meet Director Bob Lange:

It was a warm (some may have called it TOO warm) and sunny day at Tawasentha Park in Guilderland Saturday, where EMPO held its next-to-last meet for the spring season. We had a great turnout for such a warm day, we inducted and instructed one new member, and in general had a wonderful time.

Special thanks go to my wife Sue and Phil's wife Sue at the registration desk, Phil Hawkes-Teeter on the SI computer station, and Janet, Gabor, and Phil who helped me with control pick-up.

Be sure to make plans to join us for our next event at Lock 7 Park in Niskayuna on SUNDAY, June 26th, registration and starts from 11am to 1pm at the parking area near the lock.

A few other notes and Club matters:

The test of the write-in-the-rain paper was largely positive. So far as I know, there was only one bit of smear on one of the six maps we used on that paper. And some of us sweat a lot, and/or got into some water. Also, while the paper felt a bit thin, it held up well through my couple of falls and some others. It is still questionable whether this paper is worth the price, as opposed to normal laser paper with a plastic bag, but it is a viable option.

There was some discussion around when/where to hold our legally required Annual Meeting. At this point, there are two options on the table, and both of them have some support:
  • Lock Seven (Niskayuna Parks) Start/Finish area after most have finished their courses on Sunday, June 26. There are picnic tables there, and we have had our meeting there before. I think most of the club Officers can make it.

  • Lunch at a restaurant somewhere on Saturday, July 9. Again, I think most of the Officers can make it.
We need a quorum to make the meeting legally official, and this time we have at least one Officer change to vote on, as Janet Tryson will be retiring as Treasurer after 26 years in the position.

So, I know this is a ways out for how some people plan, but please let me know: which of these choices you prefer, and if there is one or the other that you cannot make.

We have two “O-promo” events on weekdays coming up, one soon, one in September. For both of them, it would be helpful to have some volunteers beyond just Sue & I.
  • On Monday, June 20, we will be training Boy Scout Camp Counselors, at Pineridge XC. Sue & I did this last year, and it was well received. But, there may be more attendees this year, as Walter would like to add some local folks to try and get them interested. Times are not exact at this point, but it will start late morning with indoor instruction, and depending upon when we start and how long that goes, then move outside for a training course before or after lunch. This is when extra hands would be most helpful, so that we can keep the groups down to a reasonable size with one instructor for each group.

  • On Friday, September 9, we will be hosting an “Outing” for the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs at Thacher Park, as part of their new school year activities. Besides being an “O-promo”, EMPO will earn some money for putting on this event. The numbers are not exact at this point, but the participants are likely to be 50+, and maybe 75. At this point, the plan is to have the equivalents of White/Yellow/Orange courses. We will need instructors, and then course monitors to keep everyone safe and get them back home. Marc Largie and I will be there, and it would be helpful to have a couple more folks who can do initial training, and then a few more who can monitor critical locations.
Please let me know ASAP about your availability for June 20. And, if you can plan that far ahead, if September 9 is a possibility.

I think that’s it for now. I hope to hear from you and more importantly see you, soon.
