A total of 36 participants came out on a cool and damp summer evening on July 27. All courses featured scenic terrain in and around the Stinky Lake/Bald Hill area, while the long advanced course participants also enjoyed controls in the Rabbit's Foot Canyon area. Courses were physical with plenty of steep hill climbs to get the heart pumping!.
