Club News JROTC Champs & HVO event at Durland Scout Reservation - November 21, 2015
Great final fall event on Clear Lake Map

We had 296 people turn out to enjoy it all, participating in 178 starts. 104 of those starts were high school JROTC students meeting for the 15th annual HVO JROTC Championships. They came from 8 different schools in NY and NJ and raced on a white and a yellow course reserved just for their competition. First place overall in that competition went to O’Neill High School and second to Washingtonville High School. Several scout groups attended, several families, some people from the NY city meet-up, and seasoned orienteers from several states and countries.

It all ran smoothly thanks to the many helpers. 9 cadets from West Point handled instruction and parking and must have done well as everyone made it out of the woods! Thanks also to West Point Orienteering for the loan of SI sticks for the electronic scoring system which all enjoyed. Special thanks to Cadet Clukey who arranged for the SI sticks, Cadet McCormick who was in charge of the instruction group from West Point, and CPT Greg Hope who was the officer in charge. Keith Wiggers, the Ranger in charge of the scout reservation, was a terrific help by finding parking for all the school busses. Bob Bullions and Nadya Popova ran the start all day. Geof Connor did all the computer work for registration and finish and enormous job...with help from Craig Webber. Craig also helped with the SI sticks and more. Bill Shannon, George Hawes and Betsy Hawes manned the registration table.

There was a crew who flagged control locations a week before the event (Geof Connor, Bernie and Liisa Breton, Bob Bullions, Jim Mertz) and a second crew who hung the flags and boxes on November 20 ( George Hawes, Geof Connor, Nadya Popova, Jeff Osborn, Bob Bullions, and Craig Webber.) And finally, the control boxes had to be picked up, a job handled by Greg Balter, Bob Bullions, Nadya Popova, Jim Mertz, Craig Webber, George Hawes, and Andy Reybauld. Three cheers for everyone who helped make the event a success... it couldn’t have happened without you! And apologies to any helper that I missed.

Results Explore the Sanctuary - Westmoreland - October 24, 2015
A nice crisp dry fall day and a new map brought over 200 people (110 group or individual starts), mostly new orienteers and beginners to Westmoreland Sanctuary last Saturday to ‘Explore the Sanctuary’, an event organized by the jojnt efforts of the Sanctuary and Hudson Valley Orienteering (HVO). One reason for the high turnout was the aggressive marketing by Westmoreland in local papers and stores. A “Meet In” organized by Ching-Hua also brought a crowd up from the City.

As many of the participants were new to orienteering Ed Hicks was busy giving instruction before they ventured forth into the Sanctuary, alone, in family groups and scout groups. Not content with one foray nearly 60 participants took up the offer of ‘3 for the price of one’ and went out a second time on a more difficult course.

Meanwhile more experienced orienteers ran intermediate and advanced courses and some favorable comments were received about the new orienteering map, being used for the first time at an event. Thanks to Greg Balter for preparing the excellent base map and also setting the advanced courses.

Orienteers came not only locally but from the city and upstate New York and from Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. There was even one keen orienteer on holiday from Israel.

In addition to running the courses many people took advantage of the mild weather to have a picnic lunch and enjoy the foliage.

Many thanks to Craig and Paul for helping me set out controls and Greg, Andy, Judy and Paul for control pick up. Also thanks to Ching-Hua and Craig for helping with E-punch and also registration and of course Steve and Jill of Westmoreland for running registration and generally making sure everything went smoothly – not a small task with such large numbers.

Geof Connor
Event Director.

Results Museum at the Hudson Highlands - 9/26/2015 - Results
Perfect weather. Numerous competent volunteers. A great turnout. Fun courses. WOW! What a day! Over 100 participants took part in 63 starts at the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum. There were lots of smiles.

The Orange Course this week was a Motala with 4 loops and 4 maps. It was challenging but within the skill range of most of the participants. It was also enjoyed by several Advanced runners. Thanks to Ed Hicks for taking on the challenge of designing this course and George Hawes for tweaking it a bit.

Many thanks to all the volunteers: Ed Hicks, Daniel Schaublin, Peter Zakrevski, Bill Shannon, George Hawes, Dave Webber, Mrs. Bekker, Ching-Hua Chen, Craig Weber, Bob Bullions, Nadya Popova, Jackie Grant and volunteer museum staff. Apologies to anyone whose name is misspelled; I did my best with what you gave me.

Results TOEC & Moneyhole - HVO local event - May 17, 2015
Many Newcomers try out orienteering at TOEC Recfest

It was a terrific day to be out in the woods at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center in Fahnestock State Park, NY on Sunday, May 17! It was the date of the annual RecFest at TOEC featuring orienteering instruction and courses and many other activities as well.

About 100 people went out on the orienteering courses (48 starts): White, Yellow, Orange and a training run course for the advanced runners. Because the training course was available to be run for any number of controls, no competitive results will be posted, just the total time of each runner.

As usual, the event could not have happened without a lot of helpers. Thanks to Craig Weber, Geof Connor, Ed Hicks, Daniel Schaublin, Declan Hennelly, Bill Shannon, and George Hawes for help during the event and Greg Balter for control pick up. Special thanks to Declan for designing and setting the training course and picking up those controls.

Special thanks also to the staff of TOEC who invited us to participate again and helped with extra map copies! A reminder to all: always report to the finish even if you do not complete the course. We had 2 cases at this event where the staff had to search and search to be sure the participants were out of the woods.

Results Ward Pound Ridge HVO local event & AGM - April 11, 2015
"So great to be in the woods"

Yes, the sun still exists and it is possible to run in the woods again.

We had a full set of courses, mostly set in the fast open woods with a few gnarly legs thrown in on the advanced courses.

After the meet we held the annual HVO AGM. The year was reviewed, including our successful A-meet last fall at Mountain Lake. An effort to re-energize the club and start an initiative to attract new groups to our events was presented and found a very positive response among the members and the board.

Thanks to the event director Geof Connor (and his continued effort to provide access to WPR), the course setter Craig, to Bob B and Paul B who helped set out controls, Bob B, Jeff and Craig on registration, Ed for instruction and Judy, Andy, George, Paul and Craig for control pickup.

A big thank you to Museum Curator Jason for the use of the building and for staying late so that we could finish the various meetings and tidy up and to Park Manager Jeff Main for his cooperation.
As we are updating the Ward Pound Ridge map this could be the last time we use the old one.

Barebones local event at Silvermine - Sunday March 15, 2015
Spring Has Almost Sprung Local Event

Jeremy Colgan, Meet Director
Local event - confirmed permit from the park so this is a go!

Location: Silvermine Parking, Seven Lake Drive, Harriman State Park, New York
Available Courses: Intermediate, Advanced, 90-minute score O

This is a bare bones event to start off 2015. The plan here is use the newly refreshed permanent course markers on Silvermine and not to hang controls in the woods!
Snow on the ground won't be a problem since the plates are all hung on trees (mostly north side - hint, hint). Depending on snow conditions snow shoes may be worth considering.
We are going to work on the trust system so expect you to check the codes yourself rather than write them down. No electronic timing.
There will be open heated bathrooms for folks to change in. Depending on snow conditions snow shoes may be worth considering.
For more advanced folks there will be an intermediate level, advanced level and a 90 minute score O. Intermediate (the permanent course doesn't come with a beginner course) may need to drive to Tiorati Circle after registering.
If this is your first event or you traditionally run white or yellow this would NOT be the event for you.

Go to calendar for details.

Club News HVO Event Report - Rutgers Ecological Preserve + HVO/DVOA Dual - Nov 23, 2014
Event Director: Guy Olsen
Course Setters: Bob Rycharski

Helpers: Michael Ayzenberg, Olga Baranova, Bob Burg, Geof Connor, Michael Forbes, Richard Ebright, Mark Frank, Petr Hartman, Vadim Masalkov, Tom Pelnar, Sanjay Subramanian and Albina, Lev, Yuri & Peter Zekrevski.

Weather: low 50s, sunny, dry

Starts: 137
Participants: 244 (plus ED, CS & about 3-5 others who did not go out on a course)

DVOA Wins! Again...

For the 3rd year in a row, the annual HVO/DVOA Dual Event was won by DVOA (Delaware Valley Orienteering Association), HVO's southestern neighbor. This is also the second time in those three years that the "away" club has won. Sort-of. While this event was organized by HVO, it was held on a DVOA map. In fact, several participants thought it was a DVOA event -- one group even brought a check for their registrations payable to DVOA.

As for the actual Dual competition score, it was 97 - 50 (see link below for details) -- nearly 2:1 -- but that came as no surprise since DVOA orienteers outnumbered HVOrienteers 55 to 15.

For the remainder of this article, starting with an in-depth chapter by the Course Setter, please go here.

Club News It's HVO's Turn to Host the HVO-DVOA Dual!
This Sunday, November 23, HVO will be playing host to our friendly, southwestern neighbors from the Delaware Valley Orienteering Association (DVOA) -- and, interestingly, we will be doing so on one of their maps: Rutgers Ecological Preserve, in Piscataway, New Jersey.

The occasion for this atypical arrangement is the 2014 edition of the annual HVO-DVOA Dual Event. And, after two straight losses -- including our first defeat on home terrain since 1998 --
HVO will be looking to turn things around.

Beginner thru Advanced level courses will be offered, all with pre-marked maps, and e-punching. Registration & starts will be available during the usual 11am - 1pm window, BUT because of the early sunset, all courses will be closing at 3pm.

For full event info, including course details, fees, times, notes and directions, please go here.

A note to our more recreational members: Please don't let this up-tick in competitiveness discourage you from participating. Scoring is based on placing, not time, so everyone -- even those of us who consider themselves "slow" -- has an opportunity to contribute. In fact, on White and Yellow, even groups can count in the scoring!

No-one got all controls in the long score within the 90 minutes but Peter Gagarin came close, missing only 2 low value controls with a score of 560 out of a possible 590.

Results by course
Note that where the number of controls collected in the Score event were equal then the fastest time actually wins e.g. Daniel actually beat Glen even though they are shown as equal first.
Some entrants were unsure of the procedure in the score event. Some tried to collect the controls in the order given on the score sheet instead of in any order and, because the control numbers were not shown on the master sheet which some entrants copied from, some entrants punched every control they could irrespective of whether it was on the Score course or Orange etc. The results reflect only controls actually included in the score event.

Note that splits for Score are meaningless as they only measure time (and common controls) and not number of controls.

Club News New HVO uniforms
New HVO Club O suits- Summer 2014
Over the past several months we have been in discussion with several different vendors about new custom HVO OTops. It was important that it was a Quality product, well-made and well-designed. Our Last O top (2006-2008 eras) did not last very well and the colors bled once it was washed and the material was not very breathable but the price was good at 40 dollars.

Selected New Vendor: Of the three vendors, Noname was selected They had got back in touch with me without me having to call and email them more than once and I figure if that was there customer service at the start of the process that I would prefer to work with them over the long term.

The design selected was from a stock item and just modified to include our name and color .If anyone wants a club logo to be included email me the pdf file and it can get added. There is no minimum order to place with the manufacturer. The delivery time of the custom made o-tops would be about 2 months to deliver. Order date needs to be before July 21th 2014 for us to guarantee to have delivery in time for the North Americans and our HVO A-meet.

Dear Readers,
If I had to sum up this event in two words, they would be...

Patch works!

That's Patch as in, the local news and information internet platform. In Essex County, NJ, there are 10 community-specific Patch sites, and I posted HVO's event on every one of them. The result was 23 first-time orienteers, on top of the 37 others who came out Sunday. Given that there were 116 people overall, 60 of them being new is a sizeable share. I also sent press releases to local weekly newspapers, and the Star-Ledger, northern NJ's biggest daily.
