Thanks go to Barb Dominie, instructor for Using the Compass with the Map; Ann Leonard, instructor for Map Reading and Map Symbols; Eric Smith, instructor for Pace Counting and Distance Measure; and Pete Dady, instructor for Control Description Symbols and Recognizing Control Sites. Pete also designed the Orange/Green (Orange difficulty/Green length) Course and with Shawn Forney's help, set out the control markers for that course and hung road signs. Eric, Barb D., and Pete manned the Start/Finish table. In addition to all this, Pete, Barb D, and Chuck Laun helped with control pick-up. Barb S. designed and set out the White and Yellow courses, and handled pre-publicity and Registration.
We are also indebted to Mike Perotta, Park Manager, and the Pratts Falls Park staff for opening Camp Brockway and the flush toilet building for us and allowing us to use the site at no charge. It was perfect with all its nooks and crannies inside or outside for the different areas of registration, instruction, master map tables and Start/Finish table. Since it was rather chilly inside the buldings when the event staff arrived at 8:30 a.m., the entire day's operations were carried on outdoors in the glorious sunshine, using any of the dozens of picnic tables that flank the building.
Most of the newcomers came because they read about the event in the Syracuse Post-Standard or NewTimes in one of four different notices during the previous week; a few heard about it through Hiawatha Seaway Council BSA flyers; others came as friends invited by CNYO members.
Two new CNYO memberships and one renewal were processed and several folks took a copy of the Winter Handrails with a membership application home with them, taking note of the upcoming June schedule with no less than three events in one month! (Empire State Senior Games/open public event June 8 at Little York; Daddy-O June 16 back at Pratts Falls; and Rogaine XII June 22-23 at Connecticut Hill WMA). Check our club web site for more details.
