Orienteering in the desert in May? Sure! Just start before it gets hot. We had 18 early birds at Greasewood Park, running either a score course or a special dogbones alternative. The dogbones are meant to add a bit more challenge and distance. You can see both maps (and maybe people's routes, if they upload them) on Livelox.
Four individuals/teams tried the dogbones course, which was easily won by new Tucson club member Alan Craig. We had 13 runners on the regular score course, including five Sahuarita JROTC team members and four runners from The Workout Group. The top male runner was Julian Almazon and the top woman was Heather McLean. The youngest participant was Lukas Luis (age 5).
We had 7 people volunteer for control retrieval, making it very quick indeed. Thanks to Alan, Dylan, Jason, Joe, Joan, Jennifer, and Anna!
Extra thanks to Jeff Brucker for very early morning help setting out the controls!
