October 22, 2017, Thacher State Park, Voorheesville, NY

We had a gorgeous day, a fine turnout, and a very successful event at Thacher Park. Meet Director Bruce Beesley set courses which used the terrain very well. They were challenging but not perverse, and the times seemed to come in roughly as planned.

There was a lot of good conversation around the Finish area, and everyone seemed to have an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, I managed to forget to add the North lines and a scale bar to the map. I had been so intent on getting the mapping right that I forgot to do some of the housekeeping tasks before moving on to other mapping projects. But it seems that everyone was sufficiently resourceful to work it out. We also failed to get into our explanatory points that the course should be done in numerical order, rather than randomly (as in a Score-O). This too worked out OK in most cases, but we need to be sure to highlight that aspect in our intro-training, as most orienteering courses are sequential, not random.

Thanks to all who came! You really made the effort worthwhile. Biggest thanks of course go to Bruce Beesley, who set the courses, on map and on land, and then ran Registration and did most of the pick-up. Thanks too to Frank Boscoe for doing some pickup.

Our final event for the Autumn season will be held on Saturday, November 18 at Peebles Island State Park in Waterford (near the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, between Cohoes and Troy).  Check the EMPO map section for more precise directions. This will be our annual “Club Championship” event. You do not need to be a member of EMPO to do a course. But you DO need to be a member for calendar year 2017 and complete your course solo for eligibility to be named a “Club Champion”. The prizes for our Champions this year are jars of delicious local honey. You can join EMPO right up to the moment you start your course; but you cannot be a “Champion” if you sign up after completing your course, though we will still happily accept your membership at any time.

I hope we see all of you again at Peebles. The weather may not be this nice again at that time; but we will be there, prepared for whatever weather, and you can still have fun, as long as you too are prepared.
