Notes from the Course Setter: This time we will be able to use the entire map, including the Camping Area. Please stay out of the actual camp sites; when you are in the camping area please run AROUND the camp sites -- use the trails and the roads! Also, there will be LOTS and LOTS of controls so CHECK the codes carefully.
