Box Canyon Score-O Results -- 3/8/15
Peter Hutter and Jeff Brodsky set a fast, fun course in the rolling hills of Box Canyon and March 8th provided perfect weather for all the orienteers participating in the 2-hour Score-O. The sun shone and a light breeze kept the temperatures comfortable while participants got ready and headed out on the course. Start times were staggered to discourage any tendency to follow a fellow competitor and several rookie orienteers joined us, having participated at Catalina State Park last month.
