    I have recently finished a map I have been working on at Arcadia University (Glenside, PA) and now working with the school to clarify some wording on the map and more accurate western boundaires with private property.   Hoping to get permission to host a short course event there later in the fall.  The school will begin construction of a new building in the spring so part of the map will be unavailable during the construction.

    Yesterday, Mary, Michelle & I hosted a team building event on part of the map for Michelle's college volleyball team.
    They seemed to enjoy the competition and even the coaches participated.  One new freshman recruit from New York state had done orienteering in high school as part of gym class.  Asked her is she was from near Somers, NY and that is where she was from.  Somers, NY was Ed Hick's stomping ground.   Appears what Ed introduced there is still being utilized and the students enjoy it.   Although she is currently injured and cannot play volleyball she wanted very much to participate in the orienteering event and had a great time on the course even though she had to walk the entire time.

    Hope to be able to post a picture of the team at the "O" event soon.
