Briones Regional Park
Date: (Sun.) Oct. 15, 2006
Location: Lafayette, CA
Event Director: - 925.934.6567
Course Setter: Gavin Wyatt-Mair
Type: B; Regular 7-course BAOC event in conjunction with the Scout-O Championships
We return again to the southwest portion of Briones for our annual Fall event.
All courses will be pre-marked on the maps, and will have e-punching. White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, Green, Red, and Blue courses will be offered. Grass stickers and thistles are usually abundant, so be sure to wear long pants and gaiters.
The annual Scout-Oâ€™ will also be held concurrently with the regular event, so expect a sizable crowd. Although pre-registration is required for the Scout-O, it is not required for the BAOC "B" meet. BAOC members please note that your showing is very good publicity for the club, and sets an example for hundreds of scouts and adults to see!! Please do come, with your best O' gear, a smile, and a word of encouragement for the youngsters.
Registration opens at 9:00 am. Starts will be at the usual times — from 10:00 to 12:30.
Please allow for a 20-minute walk to the start.
If you are able and willing to help out on the day of the meet (or before the event), we sure could use your help! Please let me know.
Registration will be at the West entrance to the park, off of Bear Creek Road. To get there, take route 24 West from I-680 or East from I-80. Exit at Orinda and head North on Camino Pablo. After about 2 miles, turn right onto Bear Creek Road. After about 3.5 miles, the park entrance will be on your right (donâ€™t be fooled by the parking area on the left — thatâ€™s not it), and is well sign-posted. There is a charge of approximately $4.00 for parking. Please carpool if possible, since there will probably be many scouts attending.
