Meet Director: Rob Hughes
Over 20 people turned out Sunday afternoon in Odell Park to compete in an event organised by the local Fredericton Foxes Orienteering Club. Conditions were cloudy and cool with some rain, but this did not deter the competitors. Local members and beginners were joined by others who travelled in from Moncton and Saint John to take part.
This was a "score" event, with a 90-minute time limit. Competitors were trying to find 30 control markers in this time, spread all over the park. In the senior category (over 20 years) the winner was Alex Whaley of Upper Kingsclear who punched all 30 controls and scored a maximum possible 60 points. Second was Vicky Whaley, with Stig Skarborn of Fredericton in third place. In the junior category, Carol Ross of Moncton came in first. Second was Daven Hughes of Upper Kingsclear, and third Lucy Hughes. In the group or wayfarer category, first were David and Fraser Ross of Moncton. Second were Lise Breau and family (Fredericton), and Sharon and Lindsay Steeves (Mactaquac) were third.
