White, Orange, Green, Red will be standard point-to-point courses. Yellow will be a Score-O, where all controls must be found but in the competitor's choice of order.

The event will use the Willow Springs map. Master maps will be used. White, Yellow and Orange may copy their points prior to starting (as usual). If conditions permit, Green and Red will copy theirs "on the clock." Orange, Green, Red must use the drainage tunnel under route 45 (LaGrange Rd) to complete their courses.

Join us for the final meet of the Spring season. With all the rain, the woods are lush and all the marshes and streams are full.

Take I-55 (Stevenson Expwy.) 13 miles southwest of the Loop. Exit at LaGrange Road (aka US-45, Exit 279A), and go south 2 miles to 87th street. Take 87th east and turn north on Kean Avenue. Forest preserve entrance is on the left (west); watch for the red and white orienteering signs to direct you to the registration area.

Public Transportation:
#379 Pace bus leaves Midway at 10:45 a.m. Get off at 87th Street and 88th Avenue. Walk west 1/2 mile and north on Kean Avenue 1/2 mile to forest preserve and follow trail west to registration.
