2018-10-28 Halloween O Meet and Party (with costume contest)

Here’s a chance to get a look at Castlewood from an unusual perspective and then relax and have fun at the party.  The course will challenge your strategic skills, as the controls will be all over the map with a couple of decision points of major consequence.

Location (Start and Parking):  Castlewood State Park, 1401 Kiefer Creek Road, Ballwin, MO 63021  at Shelter #1, across from gazebo and rest room at trail head lot (follow signs)
When:  Sunday, October 28, Registration beginning 11am, Mass Start 12pm.
Format: 1 hour Score O (May be done as a Bike O with finish access by paved road)

The course begins in the main valley and ends near the stairs down to the railroad tracks.  After finishing, you will be directed to the party at Rudy’s new digs (e.g.bnb2b) about 100 yards walk away. (no metal spikes please).  A simple but satisfying repast with sustainably grown foods, wine, beer and sparkling juices and water will be provided.

There will be a costume contest with a wild animal theme judged by the honorable Yvonne. The costume should be worn on the run!

When you are rested and refreshed, a cool down jog/walk back to your cars down below will prime you for your next training day.

Thanks in advance for those of you who have offered to help with course design, map checking and vetting, etc.
