O Log - World Record Attempt


    For those who don't read AttackPoint, details of J-J's 200 control world record attempt course are here. The race will be in Pawtuckaway State Park, Raymond, New Hampshire on Sunday, September 11. Other races on Saturday include the sprint series final (3 sprints), options for traditional length courses, canoe O, and vampire O. More details here and here. I'm looking forward to going.
