yesterday at Doc long was a good day for an orienteering meet as there was no threat of rain. A special surprise was that the USFS was also waving all parking fees in the Sandia mountains this weekend.

A long white course was set up.

Many thanks to everyone that attended and also assisted with meet setup. Andrea helped run the registration table while I was out placing controls.

Orienteering meet on April 3rd

We had a very good turnout at the Orienteering meet on April 3rd that was held in the Elena Gallegos Openspace area.

This was the first meet in the Albuquerque area this year. All courses were on trail and as expected we had several new people that came out to give it a try.

There is also a report that someone saw our poster that was posted at REI.

Andrea was meet director and I was assisting with control placement and removal.

As soon as I get the meet results I will update this posting to reflect the Results for each course.
