Thanks to everyone who came out for the last park-o of the series! We had a good turn out and managed to finish just before the rain. Thanks in particular to Larry and Sara Mae who ran the start/finish and to Keith Durand, William Hawkins, Ian Smith, and Vanessa Wood who picked up controls.

Be sure to wash off well, as you probably encountered poison ivy at some point.

I hope you all had fun, and I'll see you at the Park Orienteering Series 2007!
