Gold Rush 2014!

We return to the woods of Idaho City to revisit our best map, one that promises plenty of trees, hills, and maybe...gold.  Forecast is looking really excellent, cooling down this weekend.

Date:  Saturday, June 14
Location:  Gold Rush map, Lycow flat (west side start - see below)
Formats:  Score, plus a beginner classic
Starts:  11am-12:30pm
Cost:  free to CTOC members, $5/$7 per map/group non-members (member info here)
Sheep:  Yes...some have been observed looking for control bag lunches on the south

Time limit/score penalty TBD by Andy Hill on race day.  Probably a couple of hours to get as many controls as you can.

Start will be about two and a half miles up Bear Run Road (note: this is not the start area by Highway 21).   From Hwy 21 in Idaho City, turn left on Main Street, go three blocks, turn right on Bear Run Road, and follow the road to the meet site.   Leave the sports cars at home – there’s a few ruts and potholes along the way.

Bring your favorite hydration system (may be water at a control, but not sure), shoes for off trail traction in the woods, your compass of course, and your mind ready to work...
