Course Setters Notes

Additional Information

Roland Hansson has created a new map for us in the Big Bear area and we will inaugurate it with a weekend of activities.


Saturday will be point-to-point middle distance courses and Sunday will have a score-O event along with standard White and Yellow courses for beginners.

We have reserved the Bluff Mesa Group Campsite which allows up to 40 people and 8 cars. We ask that each camping group park no more than one car at the campsite. All eight car sites have now been reserved. We still have space for campers who park in overflow and walk in. The charge for this will be $3/person. Additional vehicles will need to park in overflow parking.


COVID Mitigation

To protect the safety of our volunteers and participants, the following protocols will be in place at this event:

  • Attendance by Pre-registration only. No day of event registration.

  • Prepayment encouraged. This will enable non-contact pick-up of materials.

  • A "Mask Required" zone will be instituted around the registration area to insure that those approaching volunteers are masked. Participants outside of the "mask required" zone should practice standard social distancing from those not in their party.

  • Maintain social distancing while waiting for your start

  • "Catch your breath" zone after the finish prior to approaching the download station

  • Bring your own water and snacks. No water will be placed on the course. We will have single serving bottles available at the start and finish.

  • Online pre-event beginner clinic information. While you are welcome to ask questions at the event, we will not gather people together for beginner instruction on Sunday.

  • Please do not attend if you are sick. Refunds will be made on request if you prepay and cannot attend.
