Park-O #3: Boston Common 

Starts: Thursday, May 02, 2013 6:00 PM
Registration:  Pre-registration is optional, but requested (so we know how many maps to print) by Wednesday, May 01, 2013 11:59 PM
Start Type: Interval (runners start at 1 minute intervals)
Map: Boston Common
Organizer: Giacomo Barbone

Updated park-o points are here:

For the "Advanced" course, Giacomo set up 2 loops, 2.8 km with 19 controls, and 1.8 km with 10 controls.
Beginners could do just one of the loops, and all chose the longer one. The long loop had a butterfly control, one that you had to visit several times. It was on top of a hill, just like the previous Park-O at Peter's Hill. The difference is that at the Common, the maximum climb was 6 m, rather than the 40 m at Peter's Hill.

CSU is in transition to epunching, and at the Common we used hybrid punching - the start, finish, and the point between loops had epunching, while all other controls were by pin punch.
