Case Natural Resource Park
January 9, 2022
Our first event on our new Case Natural Resource Park map was in lovely clear Tucson winter weather. Jeff Brucker discovered this local resource, mapped it and set a sprint/score-O course for us on January 9th for our first event of the year.
While meet directing allowed me (Peg Davis) to enjoy the company of some old pals, we had a healthy crop of standout new runners. Mark Yungbluth finished second on the sprint course at his second-ever orienteering event. I was happy to give a few beginner's clinics - because beginners are pre-experts!
This meet marked the soft opening of Animal-O, a race to introduce kids to orienteering. Look for it at future events and bring your favorite 3-10 year olds.
I thank Cristina Luis, Melissa Trout, Jeff Brodsky, Team Ruination and Jeff Brucker for their work during the meet and control retrieval afterwards.
