Ski-O at Mendon Ponds Park
February 6, 2011
Our second Ski-O of the year in Mendon Ponds Park started at Cavalry Lodge. The courses set by Jim Russell had very little overlap with the previous meet. The night before the meet, a heavy layer of wet snow fell, making travel difficult off the beaten track. Jim's advanced courses offered opportunities to shorten the distance by bushwhacking, but that could be very slow (unless an earlier skier made a trail for you.)
We tried a new preregistration procedure, masterminded by Tyler Borden, which allowed members to enter their information online. This seemed to work quite well. We also used e-punching. In addition to the usual advantages (a record of the time for each leg,) it eliminated the need for the start/finish crew to wait outside or signal through the window.
