    Thank you to all of the DVOA members who braved the rain and came out for the dual meet on Sunday.

    It was a win for the ages for DVOA, a dominant shut out of HVO by a final score of 1627 to 0.

    SVO scored 100 points on the day and runners unaffiliated with a club grabbed 390 points.

     

    And a big thank you to Bob B. for designing the courses, and to the Franks with help with all sorts of volunteer positions all weekend long.

    Admittedly, we (HVO) did not promote the event beyond a link from our online schedule to DVOA's online schedule.  

    I'm not sure if our absence was mostly due to rain, distance (recent DVOA-hosted duals have been in NJ;  at least twice at Rutgers), or lack of promotion.  I suspect rain+distance was the killer.

    One point:  In past duals only the placing of DVOA and HVO finishers counted in scoring -- otherwise, it would be a tri- or quad- competition.  At the very least unaffiliated participants should not affect scoring.  That said, of course, no matter what system was  used, HVO would have scored a big, fat ZERO.

    I was only going to count HVO and DVOA participants for the dual meet scoring, but once nobody from HVO showed up we needed somebody to compete against , even if it was just "none" :)

    Hopefully a better weather and distance and promotion combo can raise participation rates in the future.
