Paddle and Foot Mini-Rogaine
June 13, 2004

What a great way to visit the five parks adjoining Irondequoit Bay and Irondequoit Creek. The day started cloudy and quite pleasant at 12:00. Heavy rain began about 1:00 and continued on and off until about 3:00. At least the possible thunderstorms and high winds did not materialize. It became a bit steamy during the last hour. The Wetlands Center was a beautiful location for the event headquarters. Rick's control placements took us far and wide, high and low. The 30 controls included 11 spurs. (Is there a rule that the control must at the top of a spur?) An additional 5 hilltop controls ensured that plenty of climbing took place. There were seven "cove" controls which except for number 6 were only accessible from the water.

No one collected all 30 controls, but Pete Dady and the Domine's found all but 2 (29 and 30). Eric Barbehenn was the only one to get 5 of the 30 pointers. (He didn't get number 28 in West Irondequoit.) Stina Bridgeman was the only runner to visit Tryon Park, picking up controls 15 and 16. Joel Shore was the only runner to visit 4 of the five parks (All but Tryon). The McCullum's were the only runners to collect number 25 on the island hilltop in East Irondequoit Bay Park.

Did any of the 7 runners getting control number 6 get their feet wet?

The 2 least visited controls were 29 with 6 visits and 30 with 7 visits.

The most visited controls were 1, 5, and 17. All 3 were visited by exactly 14 boaters and 23 runners. Control 11 attracted 15 runners and only 11 boaters. The most visited "water" control was number 4, being picked up by 18 of the 21 boating teams.

My vote for the most under-valued control was number 13. I think that was the steepest, muddiest, slipperiest control that I reached. It was a pleasant surprise to find water jugs at the top. I refilled my camelback before the slide down. Near the bottom I was startled to find the Worner-Kohn team portaging from near number 12 up to the "narrows".

Bonus points were awarded for helping to clean up the environment by collecting trash. According to the meet director, one beer or soda can was worth 1 point. Other stuff was subject to the meet director's discretion.

Note from course setter

When I went out to pick up the water controls, I found that because of the earlier rain, (you do remember the rain?) the current was so fast at the Narrows (where the posts are) that I could barely paddle through. If that had happened earlier I suspect some paddlers wouldn't have made it! I saw some kayakers who couldn't. Then just before control 9 (the stream bend just before crossing under Browncroft Blvd.) there was a tree down across the stream. This must have happened between 4 and 6. Being submerged by a falling tree is not one of the catastrophes listed in the waiver you signed, but it's still covered.
