54 starts Throughout the country orienteering clubs celebrate National Orienteering Week to encourage new people to participate in this fun outdoor map-and-compass “thinking sport”. Individuals, families, and groups enjoy getting out in the woods for a “treasure hunt” to walk, run, or amble through parks to find orange and white controls. ROC celebrated their special day on Sunday September 21 at Cobbs Hill Park. The weather was not looking good with rain and wind in the forecast. Fortunately ROC has pop-up tents which were used to protect the registration and finish areas. Also ROC used School #1’s parking lot and large trees to protect food and other items. To make the event a little more festive there was a drawing for prizes. Thanks to The Map Shop for a 1895 map of Rochester, EMS for a Gift Certificate to be used for a rental, USOF for a 1-year membership, ROC for a 1-year membership, permanent maps of Webster and Mendon, 2 tech shirts, inexpensive compasses and whistles. Most persons waited for the drawings and other persons were mailed their winnings. There were 54 starts including groups from the Tay House Boy Scouts and the Wilson Outdoor Club plus new people and many club members. Many returned soaking wet and yet happy and looking forward to next year’s event. Many thanks to the Volunteers who helped make this day special: Meet Directors: Patty Borden, Sandra Lomker Course Setter: Tyler Borden Greeter: Rick Worner Registration: Nancy Burgey, Carol Moran, Anne Schwartz, Marsha Reed Start/Finish/E-Punch: Heidi & Doug Hall Flag Pick-Up: Bob Bundy, Joel Shore, Sean Sims, Marsha Reed, Richard Burgey Instruction: Don Winslow String-O: Turinsky Family Food: Jim Borden
