by James Wilson, meet director

Well, we had a pretty good turnout to help celebrate the club's 25th anniversary when we returned to the Joaquin Miller/Roberts park area where the club held its first meet a quarter of a century ago. White ,Yellow and Orange courses were set by Bill Straka, Green was set by Joe Scarborough (using the original red course from that first meet) and the red course was set by Ian Tidswell.

White was won by the team of Chris Berman, Katy Del Bosque and Suzanne Ezrre in a time of 20:40, and having done that they went out on Yellow as well for a good time of 48:15 - well done.

Scott Aster won the yellow in a great time of 23:07 ( and if I remember correctly he was recovering from an injury).

Gary Kraght took the orange course in an excellent time of 49:00. There were a number of DNF on this course, possibly the steepness of the Joaquin Miller hills took their toll?

We ended up having to void green the course because of misplaced markers, but congratulations to Bill Wright and Wes Erck for being the only two to complete the green course anyway. We had a brief panic when we thought the electric goat fence had been put around the first control, but in the end it was found not to be. To those of you who attempted the green course think of the stories you will have to share about it!!

The red course was narrowly won by Andrejus Masalkovas in 69:23 over Tapio Karras in 69:36, with Penny Demoss close behind at 70:36

There was a good spread of food for the potluck which was enjoyed by many of the competitors along with some delicious cake to help celebrate the occasion. Many thanks go out to all who helped by volunteering their time, I hope i have not forgotten any one in the following list, if I have I apologize and thank you anyway.

Thanks to Sue Scarborough for helping with the festivities, the cake , the potluck and control pick up.
