Just bunches of positive memories from NAOC.

The only downers, which were generally small, were during the relay...

(Dis) honorable mention:
Ross missing the last control! He had a great weekend, though, so I can't feel too badly for him. Sad for the rest of the guys.

1) One runner finished in a huff, and with expletives. Something about a control being down on the course. We were able to pry it out of him that it might have been #6 (which had the video camera/operator, and two epunch units.) Splits say he lost a lot of time on it. Every runner visited that control, and Tom went out to check it. Control was fine. This was a little strange, and may require a little more forensics.

2) Trevor Bray grabbed the womens' elite map, instead of his map. This is unfortunate, and I feel badly. There are obviously ways to further improve the distinctiveness of the maps, and we've discussed some creative solutions. Perhaps the coding on the back was too complicated/cryptic. Still, runners were briefed on the logistics beforehand, and ultimately it is their responsibility. But, we (or future organizers) can make this important task easier.

3) One other episode which was bizarre, and so far beyond the pale I couldn't believe it was happening. The only really sour note that besmirched the entire weekend, and while surprising, also consistent.

Really pleased with the number of survey responses. Hopefully, it wasn't onerous for people.

All feedback is much appreciated!


Am I lucky or good? Probably a little of both.

(Everything except the stuff in the blue border--new, ex post--was provided to the announcers on Thursday night. Nev can confirm this.)



Missed it a little bit on the relay...

Send out the NAOC survey.


So impressed by so many people over this past weekend.

They all deserve their own encomium, and maybe I’ll get to those.

Here is one snippet…

Hugh, who stupidly agreed to oversee getting video results in the arena, and did so with aplomb, was counting on getting dedicated stands for the monitors, provided at minimal cost. The provider balked, and they would have come to $3,500. Two weeks before the event. So, what does he do? He just engineers and builds the TOP (TowerOfPower)—from scratch. Just one engineering marvel of many from the NAOC2012 TechTeam.


For Tom, the accolades must be endless. A few highlights…

The matrix, mapping out the four days, down to the minute. The NAOC course setting binder. I mean, really—a binder? The marching orders and choreography to do the set-up, takedown, and set-up of two races in 30 minutes each. I have never seen anything more organized, and there is no one else I know who could have pulled this off. His willpower, preparation, and drive for excellence were singularly responsible for flawless technical achievement. The smile he allowed himself when it was over was priceless.

“You can be my wingman any time”. And hopefully, you feel the same.


Ed and Eddie (aka E&E Enterprises.) Their ingenuity, their enthusiasm, and willingness to keep plugging away, despite long odds, and towering challenges. Their capabilities are astounding, and frankly frightening. Luckily, their skills are being committed to the pursuit of honor and righteousness, and orienteering happiness. In a more totalitarian nation, these gentlemen would be taken off the grid in the interest of national security.

Ed’s infectious smile, but ferocious finish face. Eddie’s cute hat.


Sam is a college kid. He breaks his finger playing football, has surgery on Thursday in Ithaca, and is at PEEC (thanks to Fred!) Thursday night. No need to allow a “flesh wound” imperil the orienteering cacophony of the sprint on Sunday. A lot of people were surprised that a junior designed such awesome courses for a WRE and North American Championships. He got it done, with a whole lot of style.
