April 8, 2006 - Bayo Canyon, night

As usual the Night O' was a lot of fun. Twenty one people participated, and everyone managed to find all the controls. Of course we had comfortable temperatures and a nearly full moon. Blake Wood, fresh from his triumph in the Master's Track Championship in Boston, finished the long course in an astounding 35 minutes. 10 minutes ahead of the next competitor. Greg and Karen Kendall did a great job of meet directing, course setting, handling registration and picking up controls. Several people came from a distance to participate, Jim Anderson and Carol Brevik from Taos, and Steve Prickett from Albuquerque. But the record for coming the greatest distance was the Zaboronski family, originally from Moscow, Russia, now living in Birmingham, England, who are in Los Alamos on a few weeks assignment at LANL.
