Notes: Presidents cup: starts from 11AM until noon
Directions: From the North take Rt 82 south to Rt 282. Follow 282 south and look for O signs at the junction with Springton Road. From the south take Rt 282 north from Downingtown to the intersection with Springton Road and follow the O signs.

ED/CS Notes:

This year's President Cup will be a Poker-O. Participants will have the opportunity to make their best poker hand by selecting from controls equivalent to playing cards. Twenty controls will provide at least one of each of the major poker hands, from a royal flush to two pair. 

I will have available papers showing the hierarchy of poker hands.

Participants will be given a clue sheet with the playing-card equivalents when they receive their map.

The person with the best hand in the least amount of time will win.

Alternative O-version: if you want a better workout, try for all 20 controls in the time limit. We might call this the REALLY full house version.

Time limit for both versions: 1 hour.

(From Rt 30 in Lancaster go North on Rt 72 through Manheim and another 3+/- miles to Pinch Road.) Follow Pinch Road to the event site. Look for entrance shortly after crossing over the Turnpike.

ED/CS Notes:

Registration is on the porch of the environmental center, right next to the parking lot.  The start is about a 300 meter walk from registration, with 15m of climb.  Finish is at the registration area.

One of the challenges with setting courses at Governor Dick is that the area near the environmental center is a bit green, leading to some trail run legs coming into the finish.  In order to change things up a bit this year, instead of just a trail run, the intermediate and advanced courses will have a downhill section containing a number of quick legs on controls all within 30m of the trail.  However, the controls will be on the back side of large rock features and thus not be visible from the direction of approach on the trail (or in some cases from the trail at all).  The challenge will be keeping map contact and leaving the trail at the correct time.  This section of the map has a lot of rock detail.  In order to see this section of controls clearly, in your map bag (on the back side of the main, 1:10,000 scale map) you will have a special 1:2500 scale insert of just this part of the course.  Detailed course notes are now posted on the DVOA e-board.  Hope to see you there!

ED/CS Notes:

Two years ago the entire Hawk Mountain Boy Scout camp was remapped.  For the national event last fall we used just the main part of the camp, but the map is actually significantly larger and also covers a few less developed parts of the property.  This event will debut the larger map for the intermediate and advanced courses, containing some legs though the complex geometry of the campsites and other legs though the new parts of the terrain.  Registration, start, and finish are all at the pavilion attached to the camp office in the main parking lot.

Full course notes are now posted on e-board.

Dogs (whether on a leash or not) are prohibited at all times because of hygiene concerns.

Course Setter: Bob Burg
Directions: NJ Rt 70 East of Medford NJ to Four MIle Circle, the junction of NJ 70 and 72. Follow Orienteering signs from there.

ED/CS Notes:

We welcome all of you to ideal weather forecast for this Sunday, sunny and mid 60's, perfect to shake off your cabin fever and come join us in the unique beauty of the NJ Pinelands. "Pakim Pond" is one of DVOA's most storied (and earliest) maps.  And we will be using the Four Mile Circle portion near the Fire Tower at the Main Entrance -- rustic accommodations among pine needles and gently rolling terrain.  

The undergrowth is only budding, some Mt Laurel may have its first Spring blossoms, and for added adventure, the areas we're using for courses are NEWLY REVISED  On your course, you will visit terrain you've never seen before, often finding features never mapped before. The mapper/course setter can't wait to hear your adventures when you come in.  And we promise to keep your climb to double figures, mostly low double figures. Cool

So come renew (or jump start) your love for this wonderful venue.  We welcome any assistance, 1 or 2 hours.  Arrive early to help with start of day, then go run your course.  Or come run/walk a course, then relieve the morning crew.  No experience needed, only a warm smile and helping hands.  And as a bonus, volunteers get to run their course for free. Please contact Bob at bburg at comcast dot net to join our group.

The course stats are still tentative.  With last minute revision updates, the courses will only get more interesting, but basically the same lengths and climb.

See y'all in the woods this Sunday in the "wilds" of South Jersey.

Event Director: Katherine Moss  
Course Setter: Glen Tryson
Notes: Berks County Parks hosted event, including 11AM instructional event.
Directions: Directions: From the E or S: Business 422 to Mt Penn, Right on Carsonia Ave, Left on Antietam Road, Left on Angora Road, left on Hill Road, right on List road to Rotary Park. From the W or N: Skyline Drive south from Rt 12, left at Bingaman then right to stay on Skyline Drive, left on List Rd., cross Angora and Rotary Park will be the right. Look for O signs.

ED/CS Notes:

Welcome to Mt. Penn.  We will be using the Antietam Lake Park map but starting from Rotary Park which is located off of List Road, close to the center of the map.  This is the same terrain used for the A-meet last November, so some areas may look familiar but hopefully you’ll see some new areas too.

A few things will be different than last Fall’s event:

• Leaves are out on the vegetation, so visibility will be reduced in those areas mapped with any shade of green.

• There is a network of mountain bike trails in the park and depending on their usage may be more or less prominent than depicted by the map.  Where trails affecting route choice have become less distinct (due to non-use or vegetation overgrowth) I have changed them to indistinct on the map.  I did not re-map trails which have become more distinct nor have I added any new trails.  Blue and Red runners in particular should be aware that there are new or more prominent trails in the western part of the area which are not shown on the map. 

But there a few things that haven’t changed:

• All the rocks are still out there, as are the hills.

• There are several areas marked as Out of Bounds.  These are mostly private residences, so please give them a wide berth if your routes take you near them.  Boundaries of the OOB areas are not marked in the terrain.

And a word of caution:

All courses cross active roads, although none are particularly busy.  Please cross carefully since drivers may not be expecting a runner to pop out of the woods.

ED/CS Notes:

These events are being run as a Fundraiser for the US National Team.  Special pricing is in effect:  $10 for one course, $15 for two, $2 for each additional map in a group.
