Not for you, I assume. Went to that myself in 1990 when my son Charles entered as a freshman.

Yup, freshman orientation. Jackson starting in the fall as an Architecture major. Very nice campus, solid program. And Hayden & I were musing about what a fine sprint venue it would make.

Sorry to have missed the picnic, btw...

A popular spot. Nancy's daughter Rachel got her Master's from Roger Williams in 2015, and the son of another friend of mine graduated this year.

(Would a sprint map of the campus instantly become the best orienteering venue in Rhode Island?)

Doesn't NEOC have a map of Colt SP? Never been, but the name rang a bell when I drove by...

Yes. Colt is not the current leader. I've orienteered there once, and my recollection is that it was basically trails through fight, though there was one leg on the beach that was really windy that day. I'll try to post a scan tonight.

Never been to Colt, but what is the current leader? GW? Haven't been there in so long that I don't much remember it.

There's not a lot of competition. GW definitely had its shortcomings, though I didn't mind it as much as most. Lincoln Woods isn't entirely horrible, and I've apparently been to Curran twice, though I don't remember much about it, but maybe that's the best. There was a canoe-O in basically Providence harbor that was more or less what you'd expect from Rhode Island. Diamond Hill is legendary, but it's a gem compared the ludicrous fiasco of Big River North.
