Thanks for all your hard work!

Are you allowed to say if its going to be a 15 or 10 map (green)? Would like my last tune-up map to be same scale as meet map.

All 2 (or even as many as 3?) readers of my AP log are entitled to a little insider information:

The intent is for all maps to be 1:10,000 for everyone's visual benefit. It will depend on map marking support (I'm not performing that task). It may end up being 1:15. Oh, did you want a clear answer? :)

Seriously, I'll report back once I get the course files.

White and Orange are 1:10,000; Green and Red are 1:15,000

I really wanted everything 1:10 but three of us tried unsuccessfully to convert Purple Pen files to .pdf without messing up the courses. I can't print out 11x17 at home and no copy place will be able to support PP had to stick with 8.5x11 for all courses and thus the larger scale for green/red. Sorry! Green/red folks will have to squint.

If anyone knows the magic formula on converting PP to .pdf without offsetting the course, do tell!!

It wasn't that bad. I had to stop a few times to sort out little things on the map, but Babler doesn't require a whole lot of really fine reading.

Same here.

Controls are all stashed at #1. There was another pile already there. Put them all in a white plastic trash bag behind a tree near the control.

BTW, Yvonne, you were positively radiant. I don't know if you're taking some new vitamin or if you were just in a super good mood but, wow, it rubbed off on everybody. What a great day!

I told Jeff R. to put his controls @ #1 too. He was out there super early! I'll retrieve them this week (and hopefully have time for a trail run too).

I think I was in a super good mood...glad to be done w/ meet directing for a while?? ha - kidding! Maybe just thrilled to see so many folks enthusiastic about orienteering.
