Course Setter Notes
Yellow, Orange, and Long Orange competitors must cross from upper to lower park and back via the tunnel on the West side of the park.

Several areas of the map are marked out of bounds (vertical black lines). Keep out of these areas including the model airplane airfield on the Northwest part of the upper park map and the archery range on the Southwest.

There is no water stop on the courses but there are several drinking fountains throughout the park if additional water is needed.

The course is relatively flat and fast. There are some ant hill mounds and gopher holes in the grassy areas particularly on the Northeast end of the park and there is some rough open terrain on the northwest side of the park. Do not feed the turtles or alligators.
