Training Camp current ideas:
The thinking on the M-W practices is to start fairly early and finish in the early afternoon. It can rain anytime, but afternoon showers are likely on any given day. We’re hoping for an advanced track (probably two 3-4 km 5T events) and a beginner track with some instruction. Depending on who comes we can react to attendees’ needs. We’re thinking one park per day, or at the most two parks in one day that are very close together.

Following is a list of potential parks that will be used for either practice events or competition.

As of February 1st these locations are to be considered “OFF Limits” for all potential competitors in the 2017 ARDF Championships.
