New Year's Day 2002, Governor Bebb Metropark

Midnight Orienteering

        A 15-control score course was set.  The night was clear and cold,
with temperatures around 20 degrees at race time.  A nearly full moon
provided excellent visibility.  You could easily navigate without lights
and with a little squinting, could even read the map by moonlight.
All competitors returned well within the 1 hour time limit.
        Participants enjoyed roasting hot dogs and marshmallows in
the fireplace, and feasted on shrimp, cake and a hearty beef stew,
along with various snacks.
