Lock 7, September 2023

Thanks to all for coming out to EMPO’s first fall meet of the year! We had a beautiful day with sunny, cool early fall weather. We had 35 teams or individuals start with over 50 people total, including quite the contingent of cub scouts and even some Adventure Racers looking to improve their navigation skills. Almost everyone was able to finish their courses, some in blazing times. Marty Hawkes-Teeter won Red in just 46 minutes! Marshall Miller did Green fastest in 80 minutes; Hanna and Laszlo finished orange fastest in 52 minutes; and the Madeys finished the 1.6km yellow course in just 22 minutes with the Swanks hot on their heels! I think most everyone enjoyed their day out in the woods, with the added bonus of getting to watch some boats go through Lock 7.  

This was our (Sydney and Kevin’s) first time hosting in EMPO after stints in WPOC and SMOC. Thanks for coming out to our first meet here. It was great to meet everyone and we look forward to seeing you at future meets!

Results are below and splits are posted on Attackpoint.org (EMPO Niskayuna, Lock 7, Schenectady, NY, US – Attackpoint). We hope to see everyone at EMPO’s next meet at Tawasentha Park on September 30th. This will be a score-o event.
