Ridley Creek State Park - Local event Green course. Pretty clean run through mostly white woods. That's right - white woods at Ridley! Wyatt set a very nice course which concentrated on the super open woods at the southeast corner of the park. There were only a couple controls where you had to push through short sections of green.

Took a drive around the park after finishing because we had been told there had been a lot of logging activity due to emerald ash borer damage. I saw zero evidence of logging anywhere on the terrain covered by the O map. It may exist on the northern side of the park which is no longer part of the map.

Fair Hill NRMA, MD - Walked the permanent course put in by the scouts. Confirmed what I already pretty much knew - the post at #15 is missing and a couple controls (#5, #16 could benefit from some pruning). It's a shame the scouts didn't consult us before doing this project - the course was designed based on GPS coordinates rather than placing controls on features. It is too long (7.2 km straight line), does not make use of the best woods, and start/finish is at a remote area (McCloskey Pavilion) with no public parking. On the plus side, the controls are in good shape except as noted above and are correctly shown on the map. Still better than nothing I suppose.
