Menotomy Rocks is a small, but varied park, that contains a nice mix of woods and plenty of ups and downs. We were delighted to see that many local residents were excited to have orienteering in their back yard. From daily walkers to the park, to scout troop 306, to various families from more distant parts of town, Arlington residents were well-represented at this event. We also had more frequent orienteers come from out of town; it is always fun to showcase this lovely little neighborhood park! Congrats to anyone who finished the 21-control double-sided Orange course, which called for summiting the central hill from varying angles on 5 separate occasions.

Besides one control (that was located on a tree fort under construction and kept being temporarily moved), none of the others appear to have been touched. We know this ‘as a fact’ thanks to our Arlington-based orienteers who field checked each day – thanks Suzanne, Masha and Kristin!

Thanks also to Mark and Karen for making it so easy to set up QR codes and provided the materials to explain how to use them, as well as to Jim Paschetto for the website sign-up, results and payment system. Also, thanks to those who had a moment to send a comment our way, it definitely helps motivate us to host events in the future!

Finally, thank you to the Arlington Recreation department for partnering with us to hold this event and supporting a safe use of local parks.

Wendy, Ian, Mori and Isla
