The Gray Summit I-44 exit is #253, just two exits west of Six Flags (Allenton/Eureka).

Turn right on Old Gray Summit Road and follow for 1.5 miles. Turn right on the gravel road between stone pillars. Follow orienteering signs to the Freund Center.
Details: We are at the Freund Center again this year. The format will be a Score-O with everyone starting at the same time. You will have one hour to find as many of the 22 controls as you can. Same format as previous years, however 80% of the controls are on different feature. I plan on using e-punch, maps will be pre-printed.
Check-In begins at 11 am. You may register online below or register at the event. There will be a mass start at 12 noon. Lunch at 1 pm.
Pot-Luck: Please stay for the pot-luck lunch that immediately follows. Bring your favorite dish to share.
