ROC hosted a corn-maze based Orienteering meet at Zarpentine Farms in Hilton, NY. The club had the maze to themselves prior to it being opened to the general public for the day. After the previous day of rain, the weather was initially cool, but turned into a beautiful sunny day. The map was a completely non-standard black, grey and white. Bridges were added by hand in red later. Corn was in grey. Open areas were white. The summer/fall weather added a twist of changing some 'corn features' to non-existant, or spotty, and added some water features (a.k.a the 'lakes' in the northeast and southwest areas). There were 39 'starts' (groups), with 60 total people attending - which was a bigger crowd than expected, given the location. Multi-generation orienteers who participated included the Burgeys, Halls, and Bordens. There were also a number of first timers - who knows what they'll think when they go to a 'normal' meet. The event featured a quasi-mass start (~15s intervals), with the instruction of 'please return before 10:45'. Some attempted to get all controls in order, some attempted to play by the rules by staying on 'paths', and some (like one of the Meet Directors) blatantly ignored some of the less than present corn walls. However everyone did the maze, it appeared that everyone had fun. And what could be better than being able to buy fresh doughnuts when you finished? Thanks again to all the great volunteers who make these events happen. And thanks to those who both set out and retrieved controls from the muck. I mean maze.
