November 1, 2003. Mendon Ponds Park.
Night-O, Mendon Ponds Park
November 1, 2003

This past Saturday night, 60 people ventured out to Mendon Ponds Park to try night orienteering. White and Yellow courses (the exact same courses used for the A-meet except for slight changes in the start and finish locations) were used. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and no one was out until all hours of the night!!

Many of the participants suggested that we should have more night-O's - I said that I thought that we should have one a year, but others replied that two or more a year would be better!

We were short by one the number of reflectors we needed for the controls, so I decided to let the "GO" control be the one that didn't have a reflector, seeing as how that was in an open field. You wouldn't believe how many people commented on the lack of reflector for that control, that they had some trouble finding it since they were mentally tuned in to looking for the reflector shining back at them! Guess that is an indicator that reflectors DO work in increasing the visibility of controls at night!
