Training - Sharon Bond
Thanks to all for attending. The weather was perfect for orienteering, and everyone enjoyed their time in the forest.
Many new faces were present as new school teams tested the waters and returned successfully to tell about it. Many people sampled the giveaways as part of National Orienteering Day. Congratulation to Rich Runchey from Springboro High School on winning the orienteering training book raffle for coaches.
The results are shown in three formats for each: a standard result list, split times, and chip data.
The split time list shows time spent traveling between each control. For each competitor, the first row shows cummulative time, and the second row shows each leg's split time. Leading times are in blue.
The chips report is the raw data from the computer chip inside the SI cards (finger sticks). It shows the start time of day, finish time of day, elapsed time (bold), and download time of day (Read at). It also shows each control number punched and the time of day it was visited. This shows where people were and when, as they traveled around their course. It shows if people were following each other. This would be shown by a consistent punch time within seconds of each other from control to control.
The White Course was hotly contested with the top 4 places all within 1 minute of each other. Ben Bond (MVOC/Bellcreek Intermediate School/Pack-3) ended up on top by 19 seconds over Ray Wier from Miamisburg's Pack-530.
On the Yellow Course MVOC's Bob Hayes ran away with the top honors with OCIN's Rex Settlemoir only a few minutes behind in second.
The higher level courses consisted of a "Hide-n-Find" style of team competition, where one team member places a control in the woods within the circle shown on the map and returns, hands the map off to their team member who then retrieves the same control. The total time required to set and retrieve the control was recorded for each round of competition. Several equivalent (in difficulty setting/finding) controls for each round were available to choose from, as well as rounds corresponding to orange, green, red, and blue difficulty. Unfortunately only Tom Svobodny and Dave Waller took up the challenge of this new style of competition, but they enjoyed it thoroughly, going back out for a second set of rounds after completing their first full set. Their results are in the Hide-n-Find link below (.xls file).
