Not sure if you're aware, but you are already up to 55 controls in the control challenge fundraiser
-- thanks in large part to Mike
I believed that's now 58 with the additional challenge from Carl Childs.
@Mike: Shall I assume that you are willing and able to provide a large portion of those 58 "controls"? :-D
We have local meets on May the 11, 14 and 21. I can use a helper for a school program on May 13. Plus there are more than 80 permanent controls within an hour's drive. So I'm not seeing a shortage of opportunity :-)
The event on the 11th (Wed) is 1730-1830, down in Cinti; should be enough time to get there after track... :-)
Why was controls in quotes up there? And Wednesday I have an AP test and won't get out of school until 4:30 and the next day is track conference.
Besides Hueston woods, where else are there permanent courses? And I can go anytime without permission to run them?
There are permanent courses at Hueston Woods (lodge and campground), Gov Bebb, Miami Middletown, and Rentschler. I can get you maps when I get back in town. The courses are open any time the parks are which is daylight for Bebb and Rentschler, until 11pm for Hueston.
The Wednesday meet has evening starts, 5:30-6:30, but you might not want to run hard (or at all?) if conference is the next day.
I suspect Guy used quotes because the controls don't have to be actual competition timed controls. According to the rules they can be anything - a piece of flagging tape, or even just the feature itself. So you (or somebody else) could take a Mounds or Hueston Woods map, draw a few circles on it, and if you went to those points, you could count them as controls.
Mike's explanation is "correct"
