*In the lower area around the lake; courses likely will NOT go up on the plateau (but you could hike up there after your O race)

UPDATED with Race information:

Our second Spring season offering will be this Saturday, at Moreau Lake State Park, just off Northway exit 17. While we can’t use the wonderful upper level plateau for a local event (that would require buses and/or hundreds of meters of climb to a Start location), it is still a great map, and we use some of the western cliffs.

There will be a full menu of 5 courses:

Course Length (straight line) Climb Controls
White 1.8k 40 7
Yellow 2.5k 60 7
Orange 3.5k 80 9
Green 4.0k 160 9
Red 5.2k 180 9

Registration/Starts will be open from 11 to 1. There will be a 3-hour time limit on all courses, so even if you have not found some later controls, you must return and report that you are back safely. This is for your own safety, as well as our concern and possible need to search for you.

There will be at this time of year a $6 per car entry/parking fee. We could not negotiate that away.

If you plan to come, it will help me to have the proper number of maps ready if you e-mail that you will come, and what course(s) you will do. But, of course, even if you don't, come anyway. We'll be prepared to handle some of you outsiders.
