There will be a Summer Short Series orienteering training event at Lake Needwood Park in Montgomery County, MD this Saturday.  Starts will be from 4pm to 4:30pm and controls will begin getting picked up not long after the last starter has had a good enough of a head start.  It is forecast to be sunny and hot on Saturday – 100 F.  Capable participants should take this into account and should plan accordingly perhaps by carrying their own water.  Participants should plan on returning and checking-in whether finished with a course or not by 6pm.  See below for further details and descriptions. 

 

When:                         Saturday, July 23, at 4pm. 

Training:                     This approximately one hour training event is for advanced and intermediate runners.  Two courses with shared controls and similar layouts are offered.  While a control picking session was envisioned when planning for this, the distance is longer and the legs tend to be farther than would be usual for that.  Course legs will give an opportunity to test/practice a variety of skills including route choice, selecting appropriate attack points, and attacking controls within areas of multiple point features. 

·        Short - 4.6K, 13 controls, 140m

·        Long - 6.5K, 19 controls, 175m

A 1:10,000 map with 20ft. contours will be provided.  The area was field checked during the winter of 2011 and during 2010.  Small and regular size controls will be used.  Some streamers may be used too. 

Course Description: As the name of the park describes, a lake covers a large area of the park.  Both courses will go around the lake, thus reducing, but not eliminating options to cut a course shorter.  There are many trails close-in around the lake but further south and west there are relatively fewer trails.  The courses are designed to stay out of the worst of the green and an effort has been made to keep the optimal climb low.  The forest tends to be very open, even in the summertime.  At least as of last summer, there was very little stilt grass in the park.  However there are areas especially in the north where the mapped green should be avoided.  Even rough open areas can be slow.  O-pants and gaiters are recommended.  Courses will pass close to an archery range and a golf course.  Both are shown on the map with standard red cross-hatch and vertical overprint lines and are strictly out of bounds.  An area of construction exists at the north end of the lake.  This area is not shown on the map but is also out of bounds.  One should easily be able to go around the construction by following along a road.  The construction has resulted in a temporary lowering of the lake level.  One might even be able to cross the north end of the lake bed if it’s dry and not too muddy but this should not be attempted.  The map shows the lake filled at a normal shoreline level.  There will be one water stop common to both courses.  Lowlands tend to have areas with detailed boulders and boulder clusters while uplands tend to have dot knolls and rootstock features.  Large and broad hillsides emphasized in the Long course tend to have few reentrants or ditches.  Toward the end, both courses cross Rock Creek where there is no bridge.  This can be avoided on the Short course by going out of the way but crossing the water may be just the thing needed to cool you off by then. 

Where:                        Lake Needwood Park.  Meet at the parking lot on the southern end of Lake Needwood Circle.  This is the lot nearest to the dam.  There is a portable toilet at the south end of this lot.  Other toilets are available further away in a picnic area in the woods north of the parking lot. 

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=1969059

The park is popular for picnics, running, hiking and bicycling.  There is a small, play ground, and a marina where small watercraft can be rented.

How:                           If possible, RSVP to nadim@... by this Friday at 8pm (sooner is better) so that I can have enough maps.  Participations will be limited to the first 20 participants and those participants must be able to demonstrate sufficient navigation and physical capability.  In your RSVP, please identify your course.  I’ll try to have some map cases available but it would help if you can bring your own 8.5”x11” clear plastic case.  A donation is requested all of which will go to supporting the USA Orienteering Team.  If people are inclined after finishing their course, we will decide on a place to eat and socialize after control pickup.  Any help picking up controls will greatly be appreciated.

A Thank You Note

mmorienteer
 

Hi~

I want to say it really loud, THANK YOU, to those of you who
attended to SSS at Wheaton Regional Park last Saturday.  I know some of you were frustrated and
confused with ugly, rough and challenged terrains.  So was I when I hurried setting up the controls.  But I hope you feel some benefits with your
workout.  We, the US Deaf Orienteering
Team, are very grateful for your kindly donation to our trip to World Deaf
Orienteering Championship in Cherkasy, Ukraine.




THANK YOU AGAIN!

Mark, do you want to know, besides course length, if we want trails or no trails? If so, I'd like a map without trails. Perhaps you'll have trails/no trails back to back.

Everyone, I hope a lot of you can make it to Wheaton! As Mark said, the proceeds from this SSS will go to the US Deaf Team, so donate generously to help support our clubmates and their team!

Dear Event Advisers,

 

To celebrate the IOF’s 50th Anniversary year we aim to collect more than 500 compasses at this year’s World Championships in France. The compasses will be send to developing orienteering countries around the world.

 

In order to reach this goal, we need your help: If you are attending the World Orienteering Championships or the O’Festival ERDF Savoie Grand Revard in France, please bring your old compasses with you. There will be compass collection stations in both of these events. You can write a greeting note (or at least the name of your home country) to go with the compass. Pin punches and control flags are also much needed equipment for orienteers in the younger orienteering nations.

 

If you wish to participate but are not going to France yourself, you can also ask someone else heading to one of these events to take your compasses with them or send your contribution directly to the IOF Secretariat: International Orienteering Federation, Radiokatu 20, 00093 SLU, Finland.

 

Please help us spread the word by forwarding this message to your contacts. More information on the event can be found in this news article that was recently published on our website: http://orienteering.org/compasses-to-developing-countries/.

 

Best Regards,

I will come along.  Not sure which I need to take Sprint A or B.  Let me take A. I am new at this SSS.

Folks,

     The next Summer Series event is this Saturday.  Email tedgood@... if you plan to attend so I have an idea of how many maps to print.  Identify which courses you plan to do.

 

Location: Rockburn Branch County Park: West Area, Elkridge Maryland.

Time:   Sprint A Starts: 4:00.-4:30 pm.

            Sprint A control pickup 4:45 pm.

            Sprint B control pickup 5:30. (or when people finish)

             Dinner: 6:15’ish (location TBD)

Event:    

       2 Park sprints on field, forest, and trails.

Sprint A: 3K, 9 controls

            Sprint B: 2.7K, 10 controls

 

Map: Rockburn Count Park, 1:5,000   2.5m contours:  using Sprint symbols. Maps are 8 ½ x 11 and presealed (map cases not needed).  This is a brand new map, never used before.

 

Directions:

   Note there are two entrances into the park that do not connect.  Make sure you use the entrance off of Montgomery Road.

 

    Get onto Interstate 95.  Park is between D.C. and Baltimore (on the Baltimore side)

    Take 95 to MD 100 west.

    Take Exit 4, MD-103 west.  Go 0.3 miles.

    Take the 2nd right onto Montgomery Road. Go 0.2 miles.

    Turn Left to stay on Montgomery Road.  Go 0.7 miles.

    Turn Left into park: Rockburn Branch Park Road (there is a school on left at the intersection)

     Go the second parking lot on the left (by the tennis courts).

 

Details:

      I plan to hang actual controls (no epunch).  These are old faded controls so I will also hang a streamer.  Because of this I will be doing control pickup so pay attention to the start windows.  You must have at least a 10 minute rest between the sprints but start sprint B whenever you want.  Control descriptions will be provided 1 minute before your start.

      There is a little bit of poison ivy but if you run where I expect it shouldn’t be a problem.  There are some occasional ticks.

      I recommend long O pants with Gators as there are some individual briars on the course.

      There is a porta-john nearby.

 

Map Notes:    

      The map was made with a sprint in mind.  It isn’t perfect but should suffice.

     Root stocks: 2 m, Green X.

      Rough Open is unmowed fields.  Rough open with green slash is something you should avoid.

     Open areas are sports fields or Disc golf areas.  In the case of the softball fields being used, don’t run across them.  For the disc golf, just keep an eye out.

     Mapped rock isn’t very big but is distinct.

     Don’t climb any fences.  If you are climbing a fence then you went the wrong way.  There are gaps in the fences which are fine to use.

 

     Be careful in crossing the park roads.  They aren’t heavily used but still be careful.

Re: Notable QOC results at Keystone Capers

Peggy,

  Thank you for picking up my award.  That was very nice.  I expect to head to Vermont on the 9th to coach orienteering to some national guard soldiers, returning late on the 23rd of July so I won't be at any training for awhile.

One correction: Ken Jr. was 3rd in M21.

A tolerably large QOC contingent took part in WPOC's Keystone Capers A meet this past weekend and the following QOC members placed in their respective categories

Addie Nolan 3rd F-16
Peggy Dickison 3rd F21+
Patricia Mace 3rd F45+
Kathleen Lennon 1st F50+
Ken Walker Jr 1st M21+
Tom Strat 1st M50+
Tom Nolan 2nd M50+
Chuck Ferguson 1st M70+

Congratulations to the lot of them. Looking forward, our local summer series will resume this coming weekend and continue throughout the summer but a more immediate concern is that the early registration deadline for the Canal Cities Orienteering Festival, including the US Classic Champs and the OUSA convention, is this Thursday. There'll no doubt be even more QOC members attending those than this past weekend but a few more wouldn't hurt - it's definitely a the more the merrier proposition. See many of you there as well as at the summer series events this coming weekend.

I’ve received many RSVP’s and we should be set for the weekend.  If you have not sent me an RSVP, we should have a few extra maps but you will not be guaranteed one.  Here are a few updates on meeting locations and the exercises:

·        Saturday, Pohick Regional Park at 4pm – meet at the parking lot on the right side of Pohick Bay Dr. as you drive in the main entrance (the usual place).  This exercise is to let us practice finding features on slopes, in particular when the most efficient way to get to them is by dropping or climbing diagonally across the slope.  Trails have been removed from the side of the map that participants are to use but a normal map is on the reverse side.  5.5K

·        Sunday, Mason Neck State Park at 4pm – To reach the assembly area, proceed eastbound on Gunston Road about 1 mile past the entrance to Pohick Bay Park.  Turn right at the entrance to Mason Neck State Park.  Park in the small WRA parking lot on the left, about one mile from Gunston Road.  If you reach the Mason Neck entrance station you have gone too far.  This exercise is a 1 hour score-O event which will let you practice compass bearing and pace counting.   Start times are between 4pm and 4:30pm.  The controls will start disappearing at 5:30pm

·        Monday, Meadowood Park at 10am – meet at the small dirt parking lot off Harley Rd., near the intersection with Gunston Rd.  Like the Saturday exercise, this training event is to let us practice finding features on slopes however, trails will be shown. 

Thanks,
Nadim
