Here's a new course very loosely based on one from 2009.

I have most of the courses we've done since 2014, and a bunch from 2010-2013. Very few from 2009, and a handful from 2006. Not sure why there are such holes in my collection. :dunno:

But, I/we have gotten better at designing courses, so I usually only look at courses from the last couple years and tweak them. Every now and then I look further back for inspiration to do something different. There's really only so much you can do with 150 feet of width.

I have 109 files in my Brooksville course map folder. :o 17 of them are from 2017.

I only keep about a year of history online to try to keep that page tidy.

Hey, we're starting to pick up a lot of Orlando people for this event. Make sure you're registered. Prod your friends to register. Unless you're Nate and don't want your friends to register, then don't. :grin:

Is she going to quietly sneak in and take all our trophies, too?

Not a chance, if she does well I'll be raising my co-driver fee.
