What a wonderful day for an orienteering event. A sunny day with bright blue skies and ideal temperatures (70s) for a walk or run in the woods.
There were 34 entries comprising 63 participants. There were several groups with a number of beginners and children who tried the lower level courses, not always with complete success despite the pre-run training by Ed. However, they all seemed to enjoy the experience.
The mapped area consists of about one square kilometer but with some creative course design by Bob Burg, modified slightly in the field by Ed and Geof we managed to get in a challenging, but fast, set of advanced courses including a 7+K red one.
There were a number of positive comments about the variety of courses and the quality of the map.
The HVO Board of Directors conducted a board meeting after the event.
There was also a delicious Farm Breakfast sponsored by CSA (Community Support Agriculture) which was held on-site and which some of the meet participants enjoyed.
The folks at Holmes were particularly accommodating. They really lived up to their slogan of "there's no place like Holmes”. Besides the use of the property they provided us with water and coffee in the registration pavilion and other items like extension cords and furniture. Peter Surgenor, the director, went out of his way to make this an enjoyable and easy to run event, even photocopying the red control sheet when the ED found he had left them at home!. To make it easier to navigate some of the trails for White/Yellow the maintenance crew cleared some of the larger downed trees.
Geof Connor for help in hanging the flags and for spearheading the e-punch
Nina Carlson for sterling work at registration.
Liz Chiera for epunch and control pick up.
Craig Weber and Bob Bullions for control pick up and general help in setting up and taking down.
Andreas and Sagi for (very fast) control pickup.
Ed Hicks ED.

Blue Mountain Report and Results
HVO Local Meet
Blue Mountain Reservation
April 13, 2013
Fifty-six people competed in Saturday’s Blue Mountain local event, with another six volunteering. The weather was mostly sunny and comfortable for mid-April. Two large groups of mostly first-timers went out on advanced courses and did quite well. One group did Green, guided by Frank who had some Orienteering experience. The other group received some basic instruction then registered for Yellow, but were given Orange maps by mistake. They finished in over three hours, but found all of the controls!
Thanks to Dave for setting great and interesting courses, Geof & Liz for handling the e-punch and results, Chris & Liz for handling registration, Jon for helping to set out the controls, and Dave, Andrew & Geof for picking up the controls.

Westmoreland Challenge Report
A great day, sun and in the high 50’s, brought a good crowd to Westmoreland, despite the fact that relatively few HVO and WCOC regulars turned up – was it the extra $5 or can’t you belive that Spring has finally sprung.
About 120 people showed, a majority of them first or second timers and many families with pre-teen kids.
Courses 1 & 2 (white and yellow equivalent) drew the most with 25 and 24 competitors (individuals and groups) respectively with 10 doing both courses. Beginners who tried course three (orange equivalent) found they had bitten off more than they could chew as all 6 DNFed!
Fastest on Course 1 in 22 minutes was NRHS cadet Luis and partner and NRHS Eric and partner in 39 minutes on Course 2
Of the higher courses red attracted 15 competitors with the fastest Neils Lyng-Olsen (WCOC) in 56 minutes with Sergie just behind in 63 minutes. Only 2 DNFs and one of those was because his finger punch broke! Brown attracted only 6 competitors – fastest was Eris Schonenberg (WCOC)
Most of the beginners said they thoroughly enjoyed the event and many promised they would be back – maybe at Blue Mountain this weekend.
Thanks to Craig for helping with the courses setting, hanging and pickup, Liz for her usual stalwart work on the computer – the kids really love the splits printouts, Ed for his instruction for beginners, and Andy Raybould for helping with control pickup. Also thanks to Westmoreland Sanctuary staff and Friends for their usual hard work and efficiency on advertising, registration and snacks.

HVO's New Pricing for Groups
In order to encourage all group participants to have a meaningful orienteering experience at HVO local events, the Board of Directors has adopted a new pricing policy, which includes providing each person with a map.
A 2-person group (regardless of ages), in which at least one person is an HVO member, will now pay $7; 2-person groups with no HVO members will pay $12; these fees will include 2 maps.
For each additional person, age 8 & over, the cost will be $2 -- regardless of age or membership -- and they will also receive their own map.
The new policy took effect on November 1, 2012. The first event to see its implementation was Silas Condict Park, on Sunday, November 18, 2012.
A sample table of costs can be found here.

Saturday, March 16, Blue Mt Training. Peekskill, NY
There was a typo on the date in the prior news item. The training event is Saturday, March 16 and not May. Sorry about that but maybe we should have one in May too. Any takers?
The training will include some orienteering loops of various lengths and a contour only exercise. We will get started at 11AM with everyone jogging/walking to the start triangle. How many controls and the distance is up to you depending on how you string the loops together. The training is geared towards intermediate and advanced orienteers.

JROTC champs/HVO local meet - December 1, 2012
The JROTC Championships at Hudson Highland’s Nature Museum had a great turnout on a chilly early winter day.
Course setter: Ed Hicks; Event directors: Betsy and George Hawes; Starts: Dave Webber and Jamie Kamlet; Finish and Results: Daniel Schaublin, John Pekarik and George ; Results: JROTC instructors; Registration: Bob Bullions and Betsy; Instruction; Betsy; Control Pick-up: Bob, Dave, George, Betsy
The JROTC Championships were again a great success…After more than a dozen years of doing this we are beginning to get it better. Special thanks to LTC Jack Moore from Washingtonville for acting as an interface between the units and the club. Thanks, too, to the staff of Museum of the Hudson Highlands for use of their facility and making food/hot drinks available. Special thanks to Ed Hicks for the preprinted maps.
This year we had a great number of DNF’s on the Yellow Course. Many kids overestimated their ability and many failed to attend optional training sessions. I hope we can improve on this next year. In spite of this, most cadets seemed to have had a great outdoor day. Nobody got hurt or seriously lost!
JROTC groups from as far away as Buffalo, NJ and CT participated as well as more local schools. The schools represented were Western NY Maritime Charter School NJROTC (Buffalo); New York Military Academy Army JROTC (Cornwall); Minisink HS Army JROTC; O'Neill HS Army JROTC (Highland Falls); Valley Central Army JROTC; Washingonville HS Army JROTC; New Brunswick (NJ) Army JROTC; North Rockland Navy JROTC; Hillside HS (NJ) Army JROTC; Newburgh Free Academy Air Force JROTC and Brien McMahon HS Navy JROTC (Norwalk, Ct.)

Central Park, NYC - November 25, 2012
It was a beautiful, fresh day in Central Park, for 35 orienteers. All in all it was a great day to be out! We received positive feedback ranging from "this was the most fun event of the year" to "you didn't deserve that beating on Attackpoint".
We had preprinted maps for which we must thank Alan Young who came through heroically as always. We had refreshments and a table and a meet kit and water and controls picked up and put out for which we must thank Geoff Connor and others. We had course design and general organizing for which we must thank Brett Schwartz my partner in crime. We had one control lost presumed stolen (paper) which impacted one course. Unusually we had one control (regular) taken after the event was over but recovered after some sleuthing lead us to the maintenance building.
It was only during the event that Brett drew my attention to the fact that we started at Pilgrim hill on Thanksgiving. I am from Ireland, so what do I know?!

Silas Condict Map & Courses on RouteGadget
If the word "RouteGadget" is new to you, it is best described as an online utility for orienteers to draw and compare their routes.
RouteGadget not only shows the routes, but, when linked with e-punch results, it allows the race to be replayed, even simulating a mass start. You will actually see little squares move across the map. It really adds another dimension to post-race analysis. Developed by Finnish orienteer and programmer Jarkko Ryyppö, RouteGadget is also a great training and teaching aid, and quite useful to course setters.
Thanks -- again -- to DVOA's Doug Sevon, the November 18, 2012, Dual Event at Silas Condict Park is the second local HVO event to be set up in RouteGadget. Thanks also go to DVOA for hosting it on their website.
To find out how to use RouteGadget (RG), you can check out the instructions on any of these 3 webpages:
• Quantico O-Club's RG page is the most thorough;
• The RouteGadget Help page is the most concise; and
• Bay Area O-Club's RG page includes a lot of backstory.
In order for RG to function, Java must be present and enabled.
For those who want to jump right in, RG use is also somewhat intuitive. To get to the Silas Condict RouteGadget go here.

Sun Nov 18 -- Silas Condict Debut and HVO/DVOA Dual
This Sunday, HVO will be unveiling our newest map: Silas Condict Park, in Kinnelon, NJ.
Joining us to break-in the new map will be our friendly, southwestern neighbors from the Delaware Valley Orienteering Association (DVOA).
Sunday's event will also serve as the 2012 edition of the annual HVO/DVOA Dual Event, and HVO will be looking to avenge last year's defeat.
Read more about that here...

Sun Nov 18 Silas Condict event still TENTATIVE
While the park is now open, as of Sunday, some of the trails are taped off.
Our permit has not yet been issued, and it is possible that it will be issued with the stipulation that we not use the taped-off trails. However, these trails are critical to our courses, so...
Even if we receive a permit, we might not be able to go forward with the event.
UPDATE - 11/14/12, 7pm
The taped-off trails were checked and there is only one blockage that would require a streamered detour of 10-20 m, so, in our opinion, the trails are usable. Whether we can convince the MCPC (Morris County Park Comm.) trails-person is another matter...
For the latest information, please check back here, as well as the event page.
NOTE - 11/15/12, 6am
Course, schedule and other information (assuming the event happens) has been added to the event page.

Ward Pound Ridge 40th anniversary Report
A great day for orienteering, sunny but cool with lots of color left but enough leaves down to make it open.
OK, I know the map said the 70th anniversary of the 3rd US champs – it was actually the 70th anniversary of the Trailside Museum of Ward Pound Ridge and only the 40th of the US champs – but hey, it makes a good souvenir.
96 people turned up to run 7 courses with a total of 60 entries. Not so many newcomers to orienteering but a good number from overseas on their way to NAOC.
Times were generally long for the blue course and some of the lower courses, partly because the blue/red were about 1 km longer than the 1972 courses because of a forced change in start location and also because some of the old control locations are now in ‘green’!
There was some controversy regarding Blue 2; the most technical of the controls with a tough climb to get there. Six runners found it and 4 did not leading to speculation as to whether it was correctly placed. As the CS and vetter had independently approached it from 3 directions we thought we had it nailed, however, we marked it with GPS when we picked it up and (oops) it was about 50' north of the circle. Apologies to anyone who spent too much time there.
Jeremy did both Blue and Red! Unfortunately, realizing he could not use the same e-punch for the second course without downloading, he hand punched Red and produced the punched map to download with the statement ’84 minutes’. I will leave it up to you as to whether you accept his 3rd place!
Technical problems with the software meant we could not download into the computer, only print out times and splits (it worked fine when I got it home – go figure), meant all results had to be hand punched into the computer.
Full results posted here.
Heartfelt thanks to Craig for course vetting/advice, registration and pickup, Liz for stalwart work on the computer (and helping with pick up), Judy for stepping in on registration when things got hectic and Andy for helping with pick up, and of course to Park Manager Jeff Main and his staff for dropping off the water and general helpfulness.

Orange County Senior Games - October 1, 2012
Seniors try orienteering at Winding Hills
The 26th Senior Games in Orange County came to Winding Hills for orienteering instruction and fun. About 20 people (11 starts) participated. Betsy and George Hawes and Rich Sweeney got them out on their courses after separate instruction for first timers and those who had tried orienteering before. JJ Murphy helped pick up controls and get the event organized. The weather again was perfect after a cloudy, chilly start. Sandwich wraps and olives and water from ShopRite were there to welcome the returning participants.
Mark Marrin finished the White course in 41:15, about 3 minutes faster than any of the participants on that course yesterday. Congratulations, Mark! Velma Garey, a first time orienteer, finished the Yellow course only 2 seconds slower than Chick and Karen Thomas who had a couple of previous Yellow courses under their belts. Some of the participants with longer times took time out to try a rowing control leg from the boathouse to the flag pole.
A great time was had by all.

Winding Hills HVO local meet - September 30, 2012
Beautiful fall day at Winding Hills
A showery early morning turned into a perfect Fall day with plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures. 73 people turned out to enjoy the day in the woods. (49 starts) Lots of scouts and JROTC and familiar faces as well.
Rich Sweeney did a great job on registration, George and Betsy Hawes did MD, CS and instruction. Craig Weber helped hang controls and vet the courses. Nadya Popova helped with results. And of course others lent a hand for this or that. Thanks to all volunteers!
The HVO Board took advantage of the beautiful weather to hold a Board meeting.

Westmoreland Sept 23rd
A lovely day for running in the woods, sunny but not hot. Over 60 people took advantage of this at Westmoreland last Sunday.
There were some groups and some people did more than one course but there were 70 actual starts. Steven Blacklocks made a stalwart effort and did 4 courses – now that’ getting your money’s worth in a ‘3 for 1’ meet.
There were many beginners thanks to the great advertising locally by Ann Paul of Friends of Westmoreland and thanks also to her for arranging food donation from Shop Rite.
The red results were coming in with surprisingly low times and then Joe B noted that while the course was supposed to be 6.8k he only ran 5.5k. Further investigation both at the event and later showed a serious error on the map which had been there since it was updated in 2002! The scale originally set in OCAD was wrong and the blue north lines were in the wrong place on the new map. Oh mea (et alia) culpa indeed. What was supposed to be 6.8K was actually 4.53K and the other courses similarly reduced. So Jeremy doing both the Red and Green was not that amazing after all.
Apologies for all who thought their times were terrific.
The fact that one e-unit control on the No 1 (white course) stopped working for a while pales in insignificance (and was easily fixed in the results).
For full results go here – but don’t forget to only take 2/3rds of the distance!
Thanks to Ann, Steve and Adam from Westmoreland and to Liz, Craig, Jeff and Ed for help in epunch, course vetting, instruction and control setting out and pickup.

HVO Event Report: Blue Mountain - September 8, 2012
Blue Mountain Reservation
Peekskill, New York
Saturday, September 8, 2012
Event Directors: Jeff & Jon Osborn
Course Setters: Jon & Jeff Osborn
Helpers: Connor & Lisa Anderson (control pick-up), Betsy Hawes (instruction), Chris Osborn (registration, control pick-up), Craig Weber (registration, starts)
Thirty five people came out on a rainy Saturday to orienteer at Blue Mountain Reservation. The terrain is challenging even in dry weather, and the rain made it harder to see, navigate, and handle the rocky ground.
Making the Red & Green courses even harder were two misplaced controls. Craig Weber was the first runner to find the first error, and he nobly came back to the start location to notify the course setter. Jon went to fix it, but not until a dozen Red & Green runners had started. Our sincere apologies to those who spent a lot time searching in the wrong place!
Also, we didn't have pre-marked maps or e-punching due to a lack of volunteers. :-\
