We had 37 people show up on a sunny, 70-degrees day. The walk to the start was actually about 25 minutes, much uphill. Thankfully five strong people showed up early to help me carry the stuff. Whew! Next time I will trim the equipment down to two backpacks.

Quite a few newcomers showed up, who mostly did the yellow course. Thanks to Ludwig for setting the courses. I did not have quite enough time for Red, so I did the Green course. As always with Ludwig's courses, everything was exactly in the correct location, with numerous route choices. No one actually completed the orange course, perhaps because relocating is so difficult in this area. It's a pretty big jump from yellow to orange. I am planning on teaching an intermediate skills class in the near future, so look for the announcement soon.

Thanks to the following: Max Suter, the team of Gary & Larry and the team of Feeling Puny helped carry the registration and timing paraphernalia to the start. Max Suter manned the timing table. Peg Davis (who also led the beginners' clinic), John Little, Mark Everett, and several others whose names I didn't write down helped carry the stuff back down to the parking lot. Yvonne and Brad Poe, Leif Lundquist, the team of David & Ryan, and the Moores helped with retrieval. Yours truly needed to get some more miles in so I leisurely collected the remaining far controls.
