BAOC's electronic punching equipment has finally arrived! So don't miss this historic occasion, the first meet in North America to use SportIdent EP. Standard fees and times apply for this demonstration event.

Remember, it is a fund-raiser for the EP system. EP cards will be available for rent ($2) or sale ($24). I advise getting your order in if you intend to buy soon. They are going fast.

The advanced course will be based on the first Sprint Tournament, which was held here in 1992. The format will probably be in two loops, allowing for two-person duels if so desired. There will also be a White/Yellow course for beginners. This may be the only chance for these courses to experience EP for a while. If there is demand, an intermediate course will be offered.

Please call or e-mail me if you plan on coming, and let me know which course you want to do.

More information on EP can be found in an article by Evan Custer in the current ONA magazine and in BAOC's electronic punching report.


Take Highway 13, the Warren Freeway in Oakland to Joaquin Miller Road. Head east about a mile and turn left on Skyline. After another mile, look for the O marker on the left hand side of the road just past the entrance to Roberts Area. Parking along the road is OK if you can get off the pavement. If not, ample parking is available at Roberts though a fee may be charged. We'll be in the Redwood Grove area.
