My apologies for not posting these sooner. Valerie had loaded them to her site, but I forgot to look there last night. Combined reults are here and on the ISIC website.

IC team results? I know that West Point went 1-2-3, but it would be nice to see who was on which team, etc.

The IC team names are can be found in the overall results. My appologies for overlooking USMAOC teams 2 and 3 yesterday in the awards ceremony; medals are on their way.

Thank you, glad you enjoyed. Full credit also to Possum Tro Orienteering Club, who co-hosted the event.

A fun meet, well organized. Tremendous thanks to Possum Trot members, Mary, Dick, Reta, and all their many fantastic helpers for a job very well done in spite of the adverse conditions!

The one disappointment from the perspective of my students was the lack of team trophies, other than the first place travelling cups provided by OUSA.

A trophy to bring home and display at the school (in addition to the individual medals) is a big asset in convincing school administrators that orienteering is a team worth supporting in the future to bring some prestige to the school, and also motivating to recruiting future team members.

Mike, are you suggesting additional "keeper" trophies for the winners? Or 2nd and 3rd place trophies in categories with traveling trophies? Or both?

When was the last time that there were extra trophies?

I know for sure that at the 2010 Interscholastics in Cincinnati, OCIN spent close to $1000 on trophies above and beyond the rotating Cups provided by OUSA. The trophies went at least through third place at all levels, including JROTC and club teams, and including the primary school divison which OUSA does not officially recognize.

I know that extra trophies provided by the host club had been standard and accepted practice at the Interscholastics prior to this time, and that at least one previous year had gone 5 places deep. I didn't make it to the events the last two years on the west coast, but certainly assumed that the practice had continued.

Again, nothing to take away from OK and PTOC for hosting an excellent event, and I don't want to hear that "Minium is complaining" or "Nobody appreciates us". That's not at all the case. But it was a big surprise, and certainly not what I had led my team to expect, based on my past IS experiences.

Nice pix, Barb.

I have also posted about 200 pictures. No captions yet and some are from St Louis on our trip out. Quite a few of training at Kill Creek on Friday, and from the Saturday finish. A few from Sunday.
