Key Members Made It Happen in 2013
As I prepare this past year's 2013 Event Calendar for relegation to the website archives, I'm struck by the number of members who have shared their time and sweat to make our events happen. These generous folks put on eleven orienteering meets last year, one of which was a regional event.
