Recall being at a meet there (perhaps first use of map) quite a while ago, c. 15 yrs? As I recall, it was fall & we had to pass thru a tall-grass field with snow cover. A very cold start.

That A-meet was at least twenty years ago; I've lived here that long and it pre-dates me!

I looked for the Sardinia map (USOC 1981, 36 years!) as a challenge to memory and what passes for “organization” - maps alphabetically by state but 'blended':-) by me, unintentionally I suppose, over the years. Did not find it (might have lost in a basement flood c. 2000) but did find this article I wrote and found interesting. Old names, facts etc and a surprisingly big meet...a single red course with 150 runners.... It was Camp Schoelkopf on Saturday that was so cold. Many O’s ago….

USOC, ’81: page 1, 2, 3

Bob, thanks for posting. Was great fun to read. Hard to believe that BFLO was only 6 years old at the time. My wife hasn't forgotten standing in the muck at the start getting everyone started.
