A number of people considering our NRE have asked about additional orienteering activities for the weekend. This what we have in mind.

"ROC is planning on leaving the controls in the woods so that people can run another course or re-run their course on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. We plan to pick up the controls at one on Sunday. Extra courses will be $5 to cover the cost of map printing and insurance." Additional results beyond the NRE courses would be printed out, but not posted.

In addition we have a permanent course on the West side and lots of old competition maps from events on the East side that people could use for training. A 20 mile or so section of the Finger Lakes Trail runs down the East side which could be run or biked in either directions.
The Finger Lakes Region of New York offers many other opportunities including wineries, farm breweries, and waterfalls. The Corning Glass Museum is close by and Rochester offers many other museums and cultural activities. http://www.fingerlakes.org/explore/lakes http://www.fingerlakes.org/outdoors/hiking-biking

Camping is available in the park. https://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/letchworth-...

The Finger Lakes Trail in Letchworth is only open to bikes June 1 - October 31. There are some other trails in the park that allow bikes (check a park map), and there is the 90-mile Genesee Valley Greenway which goes through the Parade Grounds area on the east side of the park.

Buffalo has a park sprint in Delaware Park on Sunday starting at 11:00 AM. Tour the Albright Knox Art Gallery or the History Museum afterwards. Maybe the cherry blossoms will be out.
