Colt State Park, Bristol, RI
April 21, 2018
Meet Director: Don Hall
Colt State Park in Bristol RI is a beautiful seaside venue. Our goal was to introduce newcomers to Orienteering. We succeeded with about 20 first timers giving it a go on White and Yellow and, on finishing, asking where and when the next meet would be. We were also glad to see some seasoned veterans show up. They mostly ran the Pink course, a 7 km course with controls placed at a White level of difficulty that provided a good workout.
The day began rather chilly, 40 degrees with a 10-15 mph wind from the NW, but by 11 AM the wind had subsided and the temperature climbed into the fifties for ideal O conditions.
Thanks to Ben Hedly and Arthur Testa for handling registration and Larry Rutter for placing and picking up controls. These three gentlemen were introduced to Orienteering last season and hope to continue this season. Karl Stephens, a longtime NEOC member who ran two meets per year in RI on maps he helped make for more than 30 years, covered instruction. Jim Paschetto, a dedicated, hard-working NEOCer, took care of all the e-punch and results tabulations. Ed Despard and Alex Jospe helped with control pickup.
