Jan 6                #1 Race to the Island (Ken Kling) Barren Ridge GS Camp

Registration 9:00  Mass Start 10:00 (Using Bowling Green Time) (CST)

Race to the Island is 3 hours of fun.  About 20 controls are scattered about Camp Barren Ridge and can be found in any order but within the 3 hour time limit.  If you get all the controls you are eligible for Level 2.  Level 2 is a time trial - A point to point race where you have to do 8 controls in a prescribed order. But here's the catch - you still have to be done with everything within 3 hours. 

One other wrinkle--each winter as the lake level drops, a bridge develops to an island in the lake.  One of the 20 controls is on the island. If you punch that control first, you are eligible for the Race to the Island.  The first two lowest times to the island for a male and for a female are eligible for a retro T-shirt.  At the end of race, you show that you punched the island control first to the meet director to be considered.
