Results are posted!

Thanks to everyone who came out to race and to those who worked to make this event happen. The course turned out to be a bit more than expected, as no teams cleaned the entire course, but most everyone ended with a smile on their faces and a few lessons learned in their pockets (RD's included!).

New UTM coordinate format

MyTopo has recently changed the way UTM coordinate numbers are displayed on their maps. The new format is a blend of UTM/MGRS/USNG coordinate formats. I think the change will be helpful to adventure racers.

Bushwhack Adventures' passports will provide UTM coordinates like this:

The bold numbers identify the grid column. The three smaller numbers to the right of the bold numbers are the easting and northing positions within the grid block.

Racers will see these new UTM formats in use on the 9-1-1 Adventure Challenge map and passport.
