Results | NOSOC & Classic Orienteering + Night-O @ Manatoc | Saturday 9/23

Recap

Another great weather day in NE Ohio

Mother Nature was cooperating with our two day event.  The first day featured public and Scout Orienteering.  All levels of courses (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced) were available to the public at Camp Manatoc, the Boy Scout Camp in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  A portion of the Beginner and Intermediate courses were also used for the North Eastern Ohio Scout Orienteering Championships (NOSOC).

The turnout was great from both the public and from the scouts (many of whom were camping out that weekend).

All scouting units (Cubs, Webelos, Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts, Girl Scouts, with their adult leaders) learned and practiced map and compass skills. Many troops work on orienteering related badge requirements.  John Naizer and company used the Yellow  course for Orienteering CampOree activities.

The day was capped off by an exciting short Night Orienteering Score course.

Information about our ongoing Scout programs are available here.

Bob Turanchik, Event Director, reports…

Perfect weather was the backdrop at a beautiful location for our Mother’s Day Classic-O event at Sippo Lake Park in Stark County. A number of Moms came out to enjoy the day. Sanae Rogers and her husband, Chris, celebrated by both volunteering and navigating. Sanae did all this after she spent the previous day and evening on an intercontinental flight. Great job!

Angus “Fred” Bond | October 1954 – March 2017

Angus was an incorporating member of NEOOC and helped draft the club’s very first
map, which was at Hell Hollow in the Lake Metroparks. Angus was an officer and
volunteer for many years before moving to continue his work in aerospace
engineering. He was felled by a stroke on February 13th and succumbed several weeks
later. He is survived by his wife, Xing Liang, daughter Beini, sons Rick and Donald.

The above photo is from Bob Boltz, and he writes:

The photo is “of Angus preparing to haul a load of ice cream to the beaver pond east
of Kendall Lake. Angus got the idea when he noticed that the control code was ‘DQ.’
He always had tremendous energy and wisdom. Every event was better when Angus
was involved.”

Race Results / South Chagrin SCORE / November 5

Recap

Submitted by Fred Mailey and Richard Davies.

What a beautiful day to be in the woods!  This was our last event of 2016 and conditions were perfect. It was sunny with temperatures in the lower 60’s.

The main course, designed by Mark Stypczynski, was a SCORE style challenge.  You had 90 minutes to amass as many points as you can. Controls vary in point value, so strategy was important!.  Controls farther away or more difficult to find had higher point values.  Stiff penalties were imposed by the Event Director for those who when over the time limit, 10 points were subtracted for each minute over 90.

We had visitors from the Quantico Orienteering Club (QOC, DC area) and the Western PA Orienteering Club (WPOC).  Jonathan Campbell (QOC) took top honors in the Score course clearing all of the controls in 51 minutes.  Yaki Barak (WPOC) was also among the 9 who where able to clear the field in under 90 minutes. Thanks for visiting. Hopefully, we did not miss any other visiting club members. If so let us know.  We always enjoy having new folks checkout our different venues.

We could not have done it without our great team of volunteers:

  • Course Designer & Setter: Mark Stypczynski
  • Registrar: Kevin Peterca
  • Starter : Fran Kern
  • Greeters: Brad Lohiser and Jen
  • Control Collectors: Frank Mahne, Steve Johnson, Richard Davies, Fred Mailey
  • Event Director: Richard Davies (doing double duty after just directing the Quail Hollow Night-O also)

Race Results / Quail Hollow Night-O / October 22

Recap

Submitted by Fred Mailey and Richard Davies.

It was a great night for Orienteering.  Clear sky, some stars, no rain.  And a little chill in the air.

The cross country style courses, designed by John Rasinski, provided challenges for all levels.  Green, Orange, Yellow, and White courses were enjoyed by all.  Our start and finish were at the gazebo, just east of the nature center:
