Sharon Woods
January 24, 2004
Matthew Robbins, Event Director
61 starts, 78 orienteers

    Although the temperature never broke above freezing, it was a mostly sunny day, and orienteers turned out in droves for the unveiling of the new edition of Sharon Woods.  One of OCIN's oldest maps, Sharon Woods has been in use for orienteering since the mid 1980's.  The old, pre-OCAD map had undergone a lot of changes including closed trails, new roads, and significant vegetation changes.  Sharon Woods was completely remapped in late fall, 2002 by Vladimir Zherdev, and this was our first use of the new area.  We were a little overwhelmed by the number of participants on such a cold day, and sold out our entire supply of around 70 maps, although I think everyone who wanted to do a course eventually did get a map and got to go out.
    One couple lost a compass on the course, but they went to a nearby store and purchased a replacement.
    Thanks to Bob Frey for assisting with registration and Mike Minium with timing.
