Letchworth State Park
May 31, 2003
What a day!
Rain, Rain and more Rain -- coupled with some challenging,
technical courses ... and of course this IS Letchworth ... and
that means hills and climb. Well the good news is the new club shelters
were well broken in!
Tina Bray set her first courses with the White and Yellow courses -
and the reports from the finishers were all positive -- Carol Moran even came
into to the finish all smiles, beaming ear to ear!
Segey Dobretsov set the Orange, Green and Red courses and provided a real
challenge. My first inkling of what was to come was Sergey saying in passing
"maybe everyone should run down one course" and then "you know the vegitation
has really leafed out since I was here two weeks ago ... " -- uh oh!
Some hours later, as I circled the spot I was SURE held the control, I thought
back on that and wondered if I SHOULD have run the Orange course! I'm sure many
others felt the same. But on this day, and with this course, completing every
leg was an accomplishment.
In the end everyone made it back, and all seemed to have a good time!
I want to give thanks to those who helped at the meet including Kay Sheehan
(the muffins were great) and Kathy Bannister kept registration moving along.
Ravi Nareppa and Dave Levine handled the epunching registration and results.
Special thanks go to Tina and Sergey for taking on the course setting with
very short notice, and to Dave Levine and Bob Bundy for staying quite late
and helping to get the shelters down and packed up.
