Scout-O Orienteering WrapUp

Pack 1776 families,

This past Sunday, our Pack 1776 Scouts did a fabulous job in their first orienteering event. They should all be proud of themselves for competing through the rain, past swings and goats, up and down hills so slippery they had to use a rope!

Our Pack 1776 scouts placed 17th overall among 48 total packs/troops. Each team raced to find 10 controls on Course 1, which was at least 3.9 km and had at least 150 m total climb. The winning time was 47:59 (47 minutes, 59 seconds). Here are the placements of each team out of 73 teams that competed on Course 1:

#5 Jared O & Atharv D (1:04:57 / 1 hour, 4 min, 57 seconds)
#24 Aidan L & Brian L (1:20:50)
#26 Emmett L & Austin S (1:22:33)
#28 Rohan C  (1:24:17)
#29 Jack P & Cole F (1:24:53)
#31 Jack S & Jacob K (1:25:29)
#32 David X & Ethan M (1:25:56)

Each of the above scouts received two patches and a blue scout "Do Your Best" wrist band.  Pictures have been uploaded to the Pack photo site.

If any student (elementary or middle school) is interested, there will be a free "Short Orientation To Our Interscholastic League" in San Leandro this Saturday. The volunteer in charge of the Junior League is Jan Hann and he is very thorough when teaching kids about orienteering.

If you hear of anyone who would like to continue to race in the future, please let me know. There are upcoming events in SF, Woodside, Rancho Cordova, and Los Gatos.
