PLEASE NOTE:  TODAY’S MEET AT MERAMEC STATE PARK IS ON AS PLANNED; FOUR COURSES ARE HUNG.  PLEASE DRESS WARM AND TRAVEL SAFELY.

 

Gary Thompson will put out a set of courses for us at Meramec State Park.  The event is this coming Sunday, February 11th.  Registration starts at 11am at Shelter #1, with individual starts to follow.  The course will close at 4pm.  We will have four point to point courses on Sunday.  A “yellow” course for beginners which follows trails, an “orange” course which is longer and will have controls located slightly off trail, a “green” course which will be off trail with more distance and climb and navigational challenges and a “red” course which is the longest, most technical, most climb and for those who have some experience navigating and want a physical and mental challenge.

There will be families and individuals participating in each course.  There is truly something for everyone.  If you need a little help, we will have members available at the start to give instruction.  We rent compasses if you need one and provide a map and case for each participant.  You just need to come dressed for the weather.  If you plan to do one of the longer courses you may want a snack and some water.  There will be snacks and water at the race start.
For current members, this event is included in your membership.  If you would like to join, memberships cover the calendar year and are $50.  We hold 1 race per month during the year so now is a great time to join and get up to 11 events free for the rest of the year.
