So we had the GrizO inaugural Zoom call on Monday night. We got about ten local participants, plus two Wills: Enger and Dickinson, the latter a former QOC and RMOC orienteer now located in Whitefish. There were also three people who couldn't make the call, but asked to be involved.

The conversation, for the most part, was an informational one from our side. We talked about all the aspects of organizing an orienteering event, including time and cost investment. After talking through all that, we essentially asked the meeting whether people wanted to keep this going, with the assumption that Alli and I would not be able to keep doing everything. The response was very positive and enthusiastic. Everyone is interested in contributing in small and big ways, and nearly everyone followed up with some thoughts privately after the meeting.

So it looks like we are proceeding. The question is - what's next? It seems like we should become an actual club with by-laws and a bank account and a board. Can someone tell me how to do that and save me the time to google through all that?

I expect to schedule a follow-up call early in 2021 to essentially lay out club responsibilities and plans for 2021. Exciting times!

Running 43:57 intensity: (27:23 @3) + (16:34 @5) 4.08 mi (10:46 / mi) +304m 8:45 / mi
ahr:143 max:166

Apparently any run I do from the house entails at least 300m of climb. I headed out to the bottom of the Barmeyer trail and attempted to run hard up to the top. The fastest Strava segment time that was listed for this was 11:39, and I figured I could do around 15 minutes. However, I didn't take into account (1) the snow and ice in the upper parts of the trail and (2) that I am old and slow. So 16:34 was the outcome. Still, good to work hard and push myself.

GrizO held its fourth event yesterday, our second at Blue Mountain. Our attendance was in the 70s, setting a new record. Several people who had been to one or two of our past events moved up to either intermediate or advanced courses, which made me happy.

We had a great crew of helpers, including several from GrizO mailing list, who took on registration and start/finish duties. Things were running smoothly enough that I felt comfortable taking Inara out on a course at the same time as Alli went out on Advanced. I think the next step will be to get people doing control pickup, and then eventually beginner instruction, and finally course setting / meet directing.

We have a Zoom meeting scheduled for tonight to discuss the future of GrizO with anyone who is interested. We hope to get a good turnout and gauge the interest of folks taking the club further into a more sustainable model.

We were also thrilled to have the Bozeman Crew (minus Tyra, plus AJ and Peter) join us. I enjoyed designing a long advanced course for them, and they pitched in with beginner instruction, control pickup, and furniture assembly. They are a great group of friendly, polite, and thoughtful young people, in addition to being great athletes. It makes me happy to see that this is the future of US orienteering.

Here is the Long Advanced course.
