Rabbit Creek-O Results

This year the Norwegian flag flew high over Rabbit Creek, in honor of Ole, his sister Elsa visiting from Norway and the Scandanavian origins of the sport of orienteering!
We had a great turnout for the Rabbit Creek Meet his year with around 30 participants!
The meet was follwed by a great spaghetti feast prepared by our club chef, Russ Pilcher with the assistance of Bill Leahy and Brad Lowe
Thanks to Russ for the cool Rabbit-O travel mugs too!
Advanced Results:
This was the third time a 4 hour time limit mini-rogaine was held at the Rabbit-O meet.
There were 24 controls spread widely over the 1:25,000 and 1:10,000 scale maps approx. 25km to get them all.
All controls were visited by at least one participant. But no one particpant visited all controls.
Jeff Black managed to visit 21 out of 24 controls (missing only DD, GG and NA) in 3:59 for a score of 37/42pts.
Ole followed close behind getting 19 of 24 controls (missing only BA, EA, LM, SA and ZZ) for a score of 32/42pts.
Jay Morgan was only 1 point behind Ole and did an awesome job of concentrating on the distant points with higher point values. John Murray did a great job on his first anniversary of orienteering only 1 point behind Jay!
Jeff and Ole used completely different strategies. Jeff got all the controls that Ole missed, and Ole got all the controls that Jeff missed so that between these two participants all controls were visited!
