TO REGISTER for the STUMBLE EVENTS SEND E-MAIL TO email@example.com AND TELL HIM WHETHER YOU ARE DOING THE SHORT OR LONG COURSE. Deadline is Nov. 9. You can then pay at the event. Morning-of-event registration is also ok but you may have to draw your own course if we run out, and an additional $ 5 will be added to the fee. No preregistration is needed for recreational courses.
DIRECTIONS: From the north: Take I-81 south to Rt 233. Follow 233 to the park. Follow O-signs. From the east: Take Rt 30 west from Gettysburg to Caledonia. Turn right (north) on Rt 233 and follow to the park. Follow O-signs.
Just a reminder to send Brad your info for the Stumble by this evening so we know how many maps to draw before Sunday. We'll have some extras, but the more we know ahead of time the better.
Weather looks fabulous for Sunday - sunny, light wind and a high near 65!
