Well, we could have had worse weather. The previous Saturday was a record low temperature, and windy. Today is was a steady 12F, with only modest wind. The problem wasn’t really during the event, it was getting to the event. Because of the record HIGH temperatures Thursday into Friday, many roads became icy and difficult when the temperature suddenly dropped and snow arrived. So it was a few hardy travelers who made it up to Partridge Run to participate. In the end, we had 10 entries, with 16 participants.

The recent warming and then sudden freezing also made the conditions difficult out on the course.  Skiing was quite limited, and only one person (Tom Hay) really tried. One particular stream crossing which is normally frozen over at this time of year was impassable, and required many to re-route one way or another (or get very wet). Also, there was one control which was stolen or blown away. This caused some delays for those who tried to find it. The Results have been amended to show that control as having been achieved for those who could give clear indication that they were there (or saw other competitors there). If I find that flag actually is there while picking up this week, they will lose those points! (But I don’t doubt them.) This issue is curious because that control was not one I felt I needed to hide, as it was significantly off-trail in the woods. Unfortunately, its loss pretty much wipes out any event income, and we are down one irreplaceable aluminum stand.

Results/splits are below. If you see something wrong or in need of adjustment, let me know.

Big thanks to all those who braved the roads and the elements to make the event happen. And, keep in mind EMPO’s future winter events:
  • Empire State Games Ski-O at Mt Van and Dewey Mtn, Feb 3-4
  • NYSSRA Ski-O Champs at Garnet Hill, Feb 24
  • Not an EMPO event, but the World Masters and US Ski-O Champs at Craftsbury VT, Mar 6-10 (EMPO needs as many member participants as possible to regain the “Perm Trophy” as top Ski-O club in the USA).
