It'd be cool to do the northern part of Winnewana but it may be hard to figure out parking for that.

As for Saturday events maybe we could get some training streamers courses group going...

Mr Wonderful:
Re: Saturdays, my preference is as much as possible there's tape prior to an event for quality control (short term: just for accuracy, long term also for funness / greenness checking), so you'd have courses for days from the Sunday ones.

Eg, Ortonville has some tape already - I can have Ken send you status. I can check on others as well.

Not perfect like an actual meet, I know, but better than nothing.

Plus you know I'll always do Saturday!

Re Winnewana: I just ran through a part of Winnewana that would be really nice O'ing, but I I had the same thought about the parking, not sure where we could set up.

Maybe the DTE trail parking spot off Cassidy and then walk NW on Cassidy to the start at that small parking area?

Always happy to do streamers when they're available, both setting them and checking them.

There is also Monks Road area, the very NE of Pinckney Rec.

Monks Rd sounds cool too, I don't think I've been to that part.

I went out today to check the DTE Parking area and it looks like it will work for staging an event for Winnewana. I counted 60 parking spaces plus 3 handicapped spots.

Would just need to rent a porta-toilet or just leave it up to everyone to take care of business beforehand.
