Orienteering returns to Michigan/SMOC!! 120 people including ROTC cadets, Scouts, Girl Scouts, Frontier Girls, Adventure Racers and many fellow SMOC members. One of our best attended events ever! Peak fall colors, beautiful morning sunrise and forest glow, many children lit up, and abundance of smiles. A few people told me "I needed this". I've organized and helped with many orienteering events but for some reason this one was extra special and I won't forget it. It felt great to help over a hundred wonderful people have a more wonderful day. I'm reall glad we did this, that the club and several orienteers supported, and special thanks to Jens, Thurston, Igor, Barbara, Todd, Richard, Ati and company, and the venue managers who made this possible.
