Sebald Park Vampire Orienteering
October 25, 2003
Mike Minium, Event Director

    There were plenty of scary surprises in store for those who braved the cloudy, moonless night.  Showers briefly wet the ground before the event, but stopped before the start and, although a distant flash or two of lightning threatened, the rain did not resume in earnest until after everyone had safely returned.  Spiders, snakes, rats and motion-activated spooks were among the surprises waiting for the unwary orienteers.
    Scoring: 10 points per control, -5 points pre minute (or portion) overtime (60 minute limit).
    There were 17 controls marked on the map.  Two were"trick" controls and worth zero points.
    Two were "treat" controls and were worth 20 points.
    Three additional unmapped controls were also worth 10 points each if found.
    Thanks to Matt Robbins, Mary Brown and UCMS students for help picking up controls and props.
    Thanks to Bob Frey for help with registration and preparation.
    Thanks to Mrs. Brown, (UCMS) and Mrs. Moray (HHS) for transporting students to this event.
