Another fantastic Corn Maze Champs in 2015!
Ian Smith once again proved that he is dominant in all of the individual corn maze disciplines, continuing his undefeated streak with wins in the classic, sprint, and night event. Unfortunately for Ian, he is not very good at trail-o, and his dismal showing in that event opened the door for Ben Gallup and Joe Brautigam to take the overall title.
Here are the top 10 based on places in each of the four events (in order: classic, sprint, trail, night) --
1. Ben Gallup, 2-4-7-3 = 16
1. Joe Brautigam, 3-7-2-4 = 16
3. Roine Andersson, 5-2-5-5 = 17
4. Ian Smith, 1-1-22-1 = 25
5. Giovanni Berlinda, 4-3-1-30 = 38
6. Steve Richardson, 11-14-10-11 = 46
7. Evalin Brautigam, 6-4-5-32 = 47
7. Kseniya Popova, 9-15-16-7 = 47
9. Pavlina Brautigam, 8-10-4-27 = 49
10. Michael Laraia, 10-8-25-10 = 53
11. Andis Vitolins, 19-11-12-12 = 54
12. Isak Prellner, 7-9-38-2 = 56
13. J-J Cote, 13-13-23-8 = 57

October 2013 brings a wealth of Corn Maze orienteering opportunities in the US:
Time to study up for 2013! J-J Cote has provided tracings of the shortest routes for some legs of the 2011 Classic (first four) and Sprint champs. Actually, J-J provided these back in 2011 but CMOUSA was saving them up for the right moment. That moment is now.
CMOUSA is tickled to announce that the 2013 Classic, Relay, and Night Champs (plus associated party) will be held at Mike's Maze in Sunderland, MA on August 24th. This means that, for the first time ever, the pinnacle of corn maze orienteering while take place on a Saturday. Course setter and event director Peter Gagarin is confident that this will bring in the kind of spectator numbers necessary to impress the IOC, "maybe even a dozen!"
As of August 3rd there are 28 people registered for the event. For more details on the event and how to register, see the event thread on Attackpoint.
