This is a “B” Event, meaning the event will have the selection of courses listed below.

String Course: We are designing a String Course for the wee children, age 4 to 5 up to 9 or 10 and those young at heart. This map is FREE! Let us know how many children will try this neat activity. Each youth will receive a map for this activity. If we have enough children, 5 or more, we could have them do their course before we begin the regular scheduled courses.

Summary: This Acadia map is situated on hilly terrain with numerous buildings. Some forest, in one section of the map but mostly open grassed lawns and paved or gravel paths to run on.

Categories: Beginner; Intermediate; Advanced; and Sport (Score type) You may go in family or as teams in the Sport category.
