Prospect Hill is always a popular event because of its convenient location and beginner-friendly woods. This time it was a little later than normal, and on the morning of the meet the Boston Area was hit by heavy a downpour making the meet less enticing. However, despite that there were a fair amount of runners. We had 70 participants. The green course (the longest) had many runners, and the white course had a fair amount of participants, a lot of them a group of MCJROTC (Marine Corps Junior ROTC) teenagers from Boston that arrived in a school bus and had their first orienteering experience. Hopefully not their last. One of the MCJROTC groups that first took controls out of order even re-ran the race to get a completed time.
The race went without major mishaps except for one white group that went the wrong way from the start at first (downhill) but finished anyway. One yellow control was slightly misplaced, but nobody but Andy McIlvaine noticed (or notified).
Great help was provided for course design by Sam Levitin, with good suggested updates to the map among many other things. At setup the meet director was very happy with the excellent help that was provided. Everything went like an oiled machine thanks to laptop help (Jim Paschetto, Jim Crawford and Sylvie Guichard), registration (Sylvie Guichard again, Marcia Steere, Bill Binette) + Tobias Karlsson and Any McIlvaine. Also the course pickup was greatly helped by Karen Yeowell and Jon Campbell, who also took most of the equipment directly to the next week’s meet at Mt. Wachusett.
For coming years I would suggest doing Prospect Hill before November, because it’s sometimes nice to take a car into the park, but it was closed for winter the week before the meet. October is also warmer and draws more crowds although the weather was unseasonably warm this time.
