Race Results / Brecksville Metropark XC / 10 APR 2016


Mark Stypczynski, Event Director, reports:

Well, I promised mud enough for all. In a sense that happened. I did not count on snow, though. That, along with temperatures in the 30’s with a steady wind, made for a memorable day of orienteering at Brecksville for the 47 individuals who participated in this event.

A big thank you to Fred Mailey, who designed and set the courses and stayed throughout the day to provide additional manpower when we needed it. Fred set courses Friday and on Saturday morning and I heard nothing but good about them. Thank you also to Marcia Mauter (greeter), Kathy Jo Rufener (registrar), Dr. John Blakemore (starter), Therese Lemmon (timer), and to the control collectors-Howard Montgomery, Kathy Jo Rufener, Dr. John Blakemore, and Bob Turanchik (a new member!). Thanks also to BSA Troop 610 for their fire starting skills. The fire made the day a bit more comfortable for the volunteers and was appreciated.
