    Thanks to all who came out to attend the summer picnic today at Fort Washington.  The rain held off until the meeting so only the control picker-uppers got wet.

    I  hope people enjoyed the relay format.  One change  I will make for next year is to use the same White course for the regular course and the relay to avoid any confusion.  On the results side, it was a clean sweep for the Rileys.  AJ edged out Wyatt for first by a mere 6 seconds.  And Oriana and Angelica teamed up for 3rd place.  All the teams except one met the 3 point criteria and that one team didn't miss by much so we will consider all results "official."

    A big thank you to all the helpers:  Sandy Fillebrown for staffing e-punch all day and sorting out the gymnastics required for Sport Ident to handle both regular courses and relays as well as individuals runniing multiple relay legs.  Dave Morgan, Pat & Bob Burton, Mark & Robert Frank, Kim McCane, Lena Kushleyeva, Petr Hartman, Kathy Urban (permissions), Nancy Sharp for running the meeting and anyone else I overlooked.  

    Hopefully RouteGadget will be available shortly to post your routes.

    PS - if anyone found a serrated knife, with a black handle let me know.

    Yes, I was the nitwit who tried to run the white relay with a regular white clue sheet.  I both amused and irritated the frisbee golfers as I ran back and forth trying to make sense of the wrong clue sheet.  It was all on me!

    Nobody ever says "thanks" for getting permissions, so "you're welcome, Tom".

    I hope to see everyone on Wednesday evening for the sprint.  Pretty much the same place.

    And finally,the question of memberships and pricing came up.  
    Saving money on meets with a membership never crossed my mind -- DVOA membership means I am part of a group of great people, and enjoying a fun sport.  I hope to keep enjoying orienteering with DVOA until that unhappy moment I just can't do it any more.
