@GuyO, that's interesting, since I used Chrome when creating the link, and it works fine for me to view. The map is just a Google Map showing the locations of the 3 parks and MSP airport.

The problem was on my computer; I could open it on my phone. Not sure why a map would need a secure connection...

Small correction to meet notes : Mille lacs kathio long blue and red are 1:15k scale , others are 1:10k scale


Meet notes pdf's have been updated online . Old copious would need to be updated.

Can we get urls on the meet notes not the QR codes please? Trying to download everything on to iPad before leaving for the event Wednesday morning so have it all and not waste paper printing but can't open these things at all!

Although might not even matter if I don't have internet anyway

Are there any social events after any of the meets?
Apr 26, 2017 12:15 PM # 
iriharding:
No social events have been planned by MNOC at this point . Things are rather spread out .

We looked at having a social event, but we realized that all the MNOC personnel wouldn't be able to facilitate as the distance and timing between the three days is larger than normal and we have to move controls between parks with 1-2 hours drive. If you would like, approach the registration table and we can give you some local recommendations. MPLS has a lot to offer and a lot of variety. Saturday and Sunday events are more challenged.

The Pete with the shiny head would be more specific ( if you dare to go there ! ;-) )
