March 29, 2008. Powder Mill Park.
Icebreaker 2008 at Powder Mill Park
March 29, 2008

ROC's annual Ice Breaker event took place in ideal ice breaker conditions- snow, ice, mud and sunny skies. 89 orienteers came out of hibernation to take part in the first, "official" foot orienteering of the year. Everyone seemed fit and ready to GO, ready for some orienteering fun and challenge. Vince Cassano designed courses, with Jim's help, to challenge the body and the mind. Vince lives near Powder Mill Park and knows its nooks and crannies; thus, orienteers experienced new and challenging control placements. He did not guarantee dry feet, however. A few orienteers got more than their feet wet as they dared to cross "swamps" to save a few precious minutes. (It is our recommendation to play it safe , please, always)

Rick Worner tried out a new idea for the finish, a "do it yourself" finish. It made S/F a lot less stressful and this method will probably become a favorite finish method. You will notice in the following results that not many seconds were recorded. We will encourage orienteers in the future to notice the seconds, as well as the hour and minute when they finish) Seconds can make the difference sometimes!

Linda Kohn gave instruction on using the compass before the event. She plans to continue to give navigational tips before selected O events in the future.

Tom Cornell brought the 2008 Rochester Orienteering "T" for members to purchase for the bargain price of $7.Tom began this tradition 3 years ago. This year's color is "stone blue".

We would like to highlight Bob Bundy's contribution to the Club. Bob reserves the lodges and shelters, obtains the special use permits, checks in with Park officials and gets the required insurance documents to them. He has been doing this for at least 17 years! ( Thank You, Bob.)

Thank You Volunteers!
