Topanga State Park

Our 150 limited event at Topanga State Park sold out! Due to some trail closures, we had to make some last minute changes to the courses and the Troy team was happy to oblige. Every red pen in the kit was put into service marking up the maps to show the changes. Unfortunately, there were other closed trails that hadn't been noticed, so competitors either just went for it or went around. For next year we will make sure to have better communication with the park and vetting to make sure this doesn't recur.

A number of misplaced controls had competitors on the advanced courses scratching their heads. One was on a small wall along a stream and had been placed too high on different wall. The other was on a knoll and was quite a bit too far west on a different knoll (I picked this one up myself and can verify that it was indeed incorrect, despite some discussion to the contrary).
Nevertheless, people seemed to have a lot of fun. We had an especially young crowd as this was the first event for this year's COOL league and also an event for John Adams Middle School.

Many thanks to all the volunteers - Gary Dolgin, Scott Schmitz, Allen Stubblefield and the TROY team, Allan and Kim Pincus, John and Nancy Kuechle, Luigi Perotti, John Magnussen, Harvey Woo, Rich Hoesly, and anyone I forgot.
