The Boone County Parks Director gave me an old black and white map of a permanent orienteering course at Boone Woods. I ran to 5 locations, and found the remains of what might have been one post. "Woods" is kind of a misnomer, since this park is mostly open land with a few stands of trees. Possible future mapping project for a sprint map. I wonder if the old map dates from the days when OCIN founder Joe Harris lived in northern Kentucky (late 80's), or if it was a more recent scout project. The map did not have a date, mappers name, or any other clues, although it had a faiirly well-written description of how to orienteer for beginners. 5 foot contours showed some pretty subtle detail, possibly from an engineering map.
