10th Blue Hills Traverse
Blue Hills East
November 28, 1982
This meet was listed in the NEOC schedule as being
"run by and for the U.S. Orienteering Team to
raise money." That it was, and the meet was
successful as we raised over $300 for the U.S.
Team. Quite a few of NEOC's own U.S. Team
members assisted in the meet, but there were quite
a few non-U.S. Team individuals who deserve
special recognition for all their work in helping
to make the meet a success. The "hero of the day"
was Ron Margolin who gladly volunteered to be
course setter of the white, yellow, orange and red
courses. Bob Lehman designed the Traverse, was
chauffeur for traverse competitors and also gave me
a lot of assistance in meet preparation. Many
thanks to helpers Sue Putnam, Sue Linsley and the
entire Callahan clan for their hours of help on
such a cold day. Dick Adams not only instructed
beginners, but also did a great job at the finish.
This meet was also the debut of NEOC's new Meet
Information Board designed by Kim Doolittle. Kim
also provided much needed warm beverages to thaw
out the workers! Thanks again to all of the above
and to all of you for helping out the U.S.
