Bicycling 15:00 [1]


We are about to ramp up our activities significantly, with WOD next week. Melanie arrives this evening, and Adam next week. We have events every day, often overlapping with up to 3 events simultaneously, next week.
On the personal side, Mom and Dad arrive today; the kids are here; Izzy moving to an apartment today for her summer internship; David walking in commencement this weekend.

I enjoyed giving Vilppu's Food & Farming class a tour of our garden and basement and chicken coop yesterday.

Met with Jackson's teacher yesterday morning. Looking forward to a literary score-O on June 14th or so.

I got an email from one of the CRLS kids. His English teacher asked him to arrange an orienteering field trip for his class. He just wanted the map. No help. Just the map.

This is how it becomes sustainable.

Staying home from Billygoat due to hip pain. The pain is probably due to not running enough Billygoats.

Updating the Nav Games website; excerpt:

In 2018, we continued the NEOC/CSU youth project with another four events. On the competitive side, Navigation Games helped CRLS send teams in all three categories (Intermediate, JV, Varsity) to the USA Junior Nationals. Our intermediate team won Silver; JV won Bronze; Varsity won Gold. The teams were coached by former USA Orienteering Team member Ethan Childs, Brazil Air Force Orienteering Team member Josivan Juan de Oliveira, and Czech coach Pavla Zdrahalova de Oliveira. Navigation Games continued improving and growing in-school programs, and is planning to host the first-ever middle school championships in Cambridge on June 5, 2018. The middle school teams are coached by two graduate students from the Boston University physical education and health department (Rachel Schwartz and Cristian Guzman), two mountain bike orienteers from the Czech Republic (Tomas Kamaryt and Marie Brezinova, who is on the national team), and a former member of the Brazilian Junior Orienteering Team (Gabriella Franco). Former Team USA member Melanie Sergiev is studying outdoor education and will intern with us for a month, bringing our K-5 PE curriculum to life through a 2-week stint with the Cambridge Public Schools. The summer program for teens should be better than ever, with leadership by TWO current and former USA Orienteering Team members (Ethan Childs and Evalin Brautigam), an experienced orienteer and sports event management student from Norway (Maiken Sandberg), and an environmental scientist (David Miller). We are beyond excited to welcome new Executive Director Cristina Luis and her family to Cambridge this summer.

Reading over that, it sounds like we are in the business of collaborating with elite orienteers to bring the sport to kids.
