June 25, 2011 Results

The following are the results for the June 25th Meet at Pajarito Trailhead. We only had 7 starts for the day. It was a very hot & dry day. As it turned out the Forestry Rangers came & asked us to leave due to an increase in fire danger. I wanted to thank Robi Mulford, Ian Swift, Richard Williams, Sanna Sevanto, Garth Reader, Mike Schacht, Drew Martinson, Kathy Siebe, Ido & Liat Reger for all their help before and/or during the meet. We couldn't have had this "last" meet without your help. Thank you all. I especially want to thank Sanna Sevanto.

May 28, 2011 Results

Except for the diabolical wind we had a perfect day for our meet. There were 17 starts & the Oro family joined our membership. Welcome Oro Family! Thanks go to those that helped set & vet the courses and those that helped with the meet site management & control pickups. Thank you Una Smith, Robi Mulford, Sanna Sevanto, Jan Bear, Mike Schacht, Richard "Mouser" Williams, Timo Schact, Bear Schacht, and Drew Martinson. I couldn't have done it without your help.
