Anza Borrego Desert O-fest, January 17 & 18, 2009:
 
Once again the Anza Borrego Orienteering fest was very well attended. 
Although we only hosted a two day meet, we had plenty of orienteerers from 
a variety of clubs from all around CA, AZ and beyond. We also had plenty of 
scout groups and military groups.
This year the weather was warm and not so windy as in the past (min. temp. 44 F, 
max. temp. 79 F,  average humidity 28%, and wind speed below 8 mph) so it was 
ideal weather for our event. It seems there weren't too many cactus bites…
A special thanks goes to all the volunteers who helped make this event go 
smoothly. 

Following individuals helped in these positions:

Course setters: – Donna & Edwin Gookin for day one, Jeff & Nancy Coker for the 
                 Maze-O and Jan Urban for day two.

I hope I did not forget anybody, and if I did, please accept my sincere apology.

I also would like to thank everybody for keeping things running fast and 
efficient. We  packed and cleaned everything (including two controls left from 
previous years ;-) )and were out of desert at 3 PM.
