August 25, 2007 - Rendija South, regular

 Twenty six people braved the heat today to go out on a full range of orienteering courses. Five people who completed the training course in the morning went out on the orange course and successfully completed it. None of them had done orange before.

Kudos to Tami Martinson as Meet Director and also course setter for white and yellow courses. Judy Opsahl set orange, and Colm Connaughton set red and green. Vetters were Michelle Palmer, Don Siebe, Colm Connaughton and Bill Donahue. Dick Opsahl helped with set up, and Colm Connaughton, Bill Donahue, Moss Aubrey, and Don Siebe helped with instruction, registration, starts, and finish results. Many thanks to all. As always, we couldn't run a successful meet without you.

Our next meet will be a National Orienteering Day meet on the Doc Long map in the East Sandias near Albuquerque. Andrea Carvey is meet director. The meet will have a full range of courses, and, as with all NOD meets will give special attention to introducing newcomers to the sport. A string course for little kids is also k planned. The meet will be from 10 AM to 2 PM, with starts from 10 AM to 1 PM. There will be refreshments and giveaways.

On Sept 22nd, in Los Alamos, we will have another NOD meet, with start/finish at the Pajarito Trailhead parking lot. This meet will focus on introducing newcomers to the sport, and will offer white, yellow, and orange courses plus a string course for little kids. Judy Opsahl will be meet director. The meet will be from 10 AM to 2 PM, with starts from 10 AM to 1 PM. As with all NOD meets, we will have refreshments, and giveaways.
