Pocahontas NW Sunday March 2nd 2003




MAP & COURSE: Pocahontas NW is a small part of Pocahontas State Park.
The map of the area is brand new, being recently updated at 1:5000
and
was used for the first time at a JROTC Raider Challenge in January.
The area is mostly nice, runnable forest, containing a number of
gullies and ditches.




There will be only one course (2.5km - 20 controls) that is primarily
aimed at novices, but it will also be a challenge for more
experienced
orienteers looking for a fast control picking exercise.




REGISTRATION: Between 11am and 1pm. Entry fee will be $7/adult or
group and $4/junior. Extra maps $2.




DIRECTIONS: The area is roughly 30 minutes drive south west of
Richmond.





From I-95 take Route 288 N until the Courthouse Road exit (dont
follow
signs for the State Park). Turn left onto Courthouse, and take the
first right - Newbys Bridge Road. The start will be on the left at
the
first crossroads you come to, the intersection of Newbys Bridge with
Qualla Road. Parking will be tight, but there should be enough space
on the roadside and in the drive of the house opposite.




Piers Newbery.
