    Course statistics have been entered for the event on Wednesday, July 11 at Norristown State Hospital.  Come join us and orienteeri on this iconic map as your courses twist and turn around the complex builidings and across wide open lawns.

    Although not officially starting until 6pm, I should be ready to go by 5:30 or even a bit earlier. 

    Remember, there are no restroom facilities open to us so plan accordingly.  A quick Google search shows a number of gas stations/convenience stores - that should have public restrooms - nearby.

    This is a favorite place of mine for orienteering. Just remember there are a few buildings in use but clearly fenced and also out of bounds.  The hospital folks have requested no photos on the grounds this year.  If you see any of our group taking pictures, just remind them.  We want to continue to be welcome at this wonderful place.  This applies only to the hospital grounds, not to the adjacent Norristown Farm Park.

    Outstanding Sprint2 by Greg, kudos! Thanks to Sandy for setting it up and those involved in maintaining the relationship with the land owner on this sprint venue gem

    And thanks to all the people who helped, especially with control pickup and general clean up:  Sandy and Karl Ahlswede, Kathy and Dave Urban, Anne and Paul Fitch, and Bob Agosta. 

    We had lots of newcomers and a large group of very enthusiastic juniors.

    Last sprint of the series is August 1 at Wilson Farm Park.
