The Lynn Woods iltarastit series is back! What is an iltarastit? A Finnish word that we think means weekly training series, but actually none of us speak Finnish, so maybe it's gibberish. This year, the events will all be held from the Pennybrook Rd entrance to Lynn Woods. Each week there will be a long and a short advanced course, as well as a beginner course, and there will always be some experts on hand who will teach you the tricks of the trade.

Each week there will be a mass start at 11am, but you are welcome to go on your own any time between 10 - noon (courses close at 1). Mass starts are just more fun.

Schedule
September 14th (Sunday)

More details
The idea behind this series was to create something that we could set up easily and with a minimum of personnel. Hence your general lack of bells and whistles. There is one map, with all the controls printed on it, and each week there is a different course, using those controls, which has e-punch units at all the controls. You are responsible for drawing your own lines between controls, but it's not hard, and we can help if you have questions.
