Jan 31, 2009 - Valles Caldera National Preserve, Ski / Snowshoe Orienteering

Sixteen people participated in the January 31 Ski and Snowshoe O', far fewer than signed up to come, probably due to people's concerns about not enough snow or icy conditions. Those fears were unfounded. Those who came had beautiful weather, user friendly snow that was excellent for skiing and snowshoeing, interestiung courses and, in general were enthusiastic about the experience. Two, after completing the course they signed up for, went out again on another course. Others stuck around to pick up controls.

Some 28 participants came to the meet inaugurating our new map,
including orienteers from as far away as Tucson, AZ, and Amarillo, TX,
as well as from Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Farmington, NM. These were
primarily advanced level orienteers who wanted to challenge themselves
on our new map, and they as well as local orienteers all came away
enthusiastic about both the map terrain and courses. We had good if
somewhat warm weather, and the thunderstorm help off until all
controls were picked up. Heartfelt thanks go to all who helped with

Winter O' at the Valles Caldera

Last weekend the New Mexico Orienteers held our third annual Winter O' event. The first year it was held at the Valles Caldera and there was not enough snow, so it became a foot O'. We had about 80 people attend that one. Last year we held the event at the Pajarito XC area, but nearly noone showed up. This year we were again at the Valles Caldera National Preserve. We had about 33 folks participate, which is fairly average for our events.
