It was another fine winter day in Tucson, with blue sky and bright sun.  Forty-two individuals and teams braved the jumping cholla and everyone made it home safely.  Ron Birks was the only one brave (crazy?) enough to attempt (and succeed) at the Motala.


We had a great turnout, and membership chair Jeff Brodsky was happy to see a record number of membership renewals.  Thanks to all the new and existing members for supporting the club!

Special thanks to Mark Everett for setting the courses and obtaining our permit, Ludwig Hill for the hours of effort put into the new map, Peg Davis for the beginner’s clinic, Kate Follette and Mark Everett for sitting in the timing chair, and an eager team of six who stayed to collect controls: Ludwig Hill, Mark Parsons, John Maier, Gregg and Pat Townsend, Shirley Donald, and Mark Everett.  Special thanks to Leif Lundquist for helping clean up at the end and carry supplies down the mountain!
