Winterfest is an annual celebration sponsored by Monroe County Parks and Friends of Mendon Ponds Park. There were outdoor and indoor events to enjoy all over the Park. Every Lodge was warm and busy. There was spinning, weaving, and dulcimer playing in the Cobblestone House--kidís winter crafts, face painting and Hayrides from West Lodge--ski and snowshoe lessons around Stewart-- birding, astronomy, kite boarding, the zoo mobile, dog sled races and so much more-AND Ski orienteering courses from Hopkins Point Lodge. Unfortunately, there was no snow for our scheduled ski-o, so Jim Russell and Mike Alexander planned a Scatter-O, where participants were to get 5,10,15, or all 20 controls, in any order. Forty-one teams braved the cold weather, including several new to orienteering. Two reporters from the D&C, the health and outdoor editors tried Orienteering for the first time and wrote a feature article on orienteering in Mondayís paper! Hurrah, we want to get the word out about how much fun it is to orienteer. Many volunteers pitched in to help make the meet a success. Mike Alexander, Greg Michael, and Rick and Dayle Lavine set out controls. Don Winslow served as greeter. Carol Moran, Heidi Hall, Patty Borden, and Linda Kohn did registration. Dayle Lavine provided food.Tyler Bordrn, Jim Borden, and Stina Bridgeman handled e-punch. Ed Deller, Gary Maslanka, Stina Bridgeman, Linda Kohn, and Rick Worner picked up controls. Thank you volunteers and all who braved the cold to enjoy some fine winter orienteering. Rick and Dayle Lavine Meet Directors
