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.
