UTM Plotter Requirements
We have received several emails from folks having trouble finding a 1:15000 UTM plotter. This tool is actually not required, but is highly recommended.
At the pre-race meeting, you will be given a large topo map with a scale of 1:25000. For the o'course section, we will hand out another smaller topo map with a scale of 1:15000, along with a new set of o'course coordinates. You may choose to plot these coordinates on either the large (1:25000) or small (1:15000) map. It is highly recommended that you bring a 1:15000 UTM tool to assist with this plotting, but it's not required. In other words, you can still plot your o'course section coordinates on the 1:25000 map & use the 1:15000 map for assistance in reading the terrain.
Racer Check-in & Pre-race Meeting
Racer check-in will be on Friday, September 14th from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm at the Union Pizzeria & Sports Bar in Downtown Omaha. We will have a MANDATORY Pre-Race meeting at 7:00 pm at the Union. You will receive your maps, important instructions and other race information at the meeting. We will announce the race start time and location as well. Also, the Union will graciously be providing a 15% discount on food and drink to all racers. Just mention you are with the race when ordering to receive the discount.
