    Thanks to Vicky Huseman, Mike Minium, and Matthew Robbins for the help picking up controls, Brennan Lawall and Greg Sack for the help putting up results.  A special big thank you to Matthew Robbins for the course consulting, for the help setting controls, and for holding down the fort at the Start/Registration area.

    This was my first time setting courses and event directing, so naturally I was nervous.  My worries grew Thursday and Friday when I saw the weather forecast Ė near freezing temperature with possible wind and snow.  Then when the storm and wind came I thought no one will show up!  Luckily, the weather Gods were on our side this Saturday, providing us with clear sunny skies and relatively calm conditions.  It was still a bit chilly (high 30s), but we couldnít have asked for a much better day to be in the woods!

    The turnout for the event was great!  Many club regulars as well as some new faces came out to tackle the hilly terrain of Mt. Airy.  It was a challenge to limit the climb to within a reasonable range, but overall I think most everyone enjoyed themselves out there.

    White and Yellow courses proved to be a bit tough, as a couple of the mapped trails are nowhere to be found in the terrain.  Still, almost everyone navigated their way around the courses just fine.

    Many of the advanced runners decided to get the maximum workout and run Red, making for a fairly heated finish results.  Overall, Iím happy to see that participations were evenly spread among all the courses.  I hope everyone enjoyed the course.  Please email your comments and feedback (on the courses and the event) to (yipg at yahoo dot com).  I would really love to hear about the good and the bad, as this will help me get better at course setting in the future.
