If we can put together a 6 point or a 9-point team can we get a Yellow course for the Relay team... unfortunately my age doesn't help us get any points:

"Each US Relay Championship team must have 3 runners, and no one can run more than one leg.
There are 3-point, 6-point and 9-point teams.
Ages 17-20 or 40-49 receive 1 point,
Ages 15-16 or 50-59 receive 2 points,
Under 15 years of age or 60 and older receive 3 points.
A female orienteer receives 2 points, in addition to any age points.
For reference only, 3-point teams will run very approximately Green/Blue/Orange, 6-point teams will run Brown/Red/Yellow, and 9-point teams will run Orange/Brown/Yellow. Winning times will be approximately 90 minutes for the 3-point teams, ~80 minutes for the 6-point teams and ~70 minutes for the 9-point teams. There will be forking in all categories; control descriptions will be available only on the maps. "
