3rd Annual Griffith Park Navigation Challenge

We had a great turnout for our third annual Griffith Park Navigation Challenge. Groups from John Adams Middle School and Santa Ana NJROTC insured that the junior classes were well represented. We did not lose any controls this year! All controls were successfully punched during the event and retrieved at the end of the event. If you reported a control missing you did not receive points for the control. Huge thanks to all the volunteers, and especially to the control setting crew. Darren Robinson both set and did pick-up on his bicycle, covering countless miles over the weekend. And the Lyscios helped out as well, making it possible for me to make another commitment on Saturday.

The two most visited controls (79 visits each) were 31 and 53 and the two least visited controls were 101 and 81 (5 visits each).
