4th Annual German Ridge Ramble


Back to Results Index

     The Fourth Annual German Ridge Ramble was contested on Saturday, April 30, 2005.
Although rain had swollen the water channels and produced slippery slopes, the contestants
were spared the rain by the time of the first start. Although it never really got warm,
the sun did make several brief appearances. The Co-Meet Directors, Arnie Franklin and
Burr Paul set several challenging courses including the debut of a Sprint course for the
Ramble. Five high schools, Apollo, Floyd Central, Muhlenberg South, Owensboro, and Warren
East were there with their JROTC units. In addition, we had orienteers from Indiana, and
several members of OLOU. An Awards Ceremony was held to recognize the winners in the JROTC

     Kevin Huff from Warren East had a great day in the JROTC category winning 1st in
both the Sprint and Green courses. Not about to be overshadowed by youth, our own Dan
Mattingly applied age and cunning to run to the best time in both the Sprint (20:06)
and the Red (1:42:00).

     A special thanks goes to Nathan Wisdom, a Warren East graduate who was a great
help in both setting controls (two days) and picking up the controls after the competition.
Likewise thanks to Allison and Paul for taking care of registration and the finish line.
Thanks also to Mike Beal for lending a hand at the finish.

     As most JROTC orienteering coaches will tell you. Success is measured by getting
all of the cadets back, relatively uninjured and within an hour of their time limit.
This was a very successful event. Arnie and I look forward to next year.
