A warning that depending upon routes and attack points some of the trails in the area have packed slush and are slippery in sections. Good gripping footwear and some caution are advised. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
This will be a classic meet consisting of two courses of varying difficulty : Beginner and Regular. Juan de Fuca map 1:5000 scale sprint map.
