Team Challenge and Annual Meeting
Our annual meeting and celebration took place on a cold but sunny day in a spacious lodge at Camp
Piperwood. After a brief meeting to elect officers for 2015, we ate (too much as usual) great potluck
food, and then went out in 10 teams of two to four to try several challenges provided by Rob Stevens.
In The Gridmania-O, participants had to execute a sequence of increasingly complex zigzag routes connecting
flags set in a rectangular grid.
In the Memory-O, maps could not leave the start area. Competitors had to find controls without the
map, by memory and return to let the next team member do the same. Orienteers feel naked out there
without a map in hand.
In the Straight competition, a card was attached to each control. Team members went out to check all
the controls, and returned to identify a straight (for the innocent, 5 cards in sequence) out of all the
cards, and then at least one member to punch those controls in order.
For fast teams, if there was any time left, there was the Cell-O, where some team members out in the
field without maps are directed via cell phone by others with a map at the base. This was complicated by
spotty cell coverage in the area!
This was all great fun. It was nice to co-operate in the sun with team members chosen at random ,
instead of trying to trick everyone in the dark in the Scrooge-O.
Many club members helped to return the lodge to its initial state and pick up controls, as well as
providing great potluck fare.
