Many participants took advantage of a log that was spanning the creek near the Wetlands Trail to reach the area where control 30 was located.
Here is a video of a 11-year old crossing the creek on that log

Randy placed second overall, with a very efficient route that maximized points per distance traveled. He found all the four controls that had the highest point value, 50 points. On the eastern portion, he found all except one control. He also ignored all the "mystery" controls, each worth only 20 points, and concentrated only on his plan and route that he planned in advance.
A team with a name like "Disoriented Weasels Pelvicly Thrusting" deserves an award no matter what placement they ended up finishing. They concentrated on the controls up north. They also found two of the four "mystery" controls.
They went up north, wanting to bag that 50-pointer that was relatively close to the start. They also found 3 of the 4 mystery controls, and could have found the fourth one easily, since on the finishing hour, they walked right by the "mother" control but ignored it for not risking being late.

if the course setter had to pick up the 50 controls and without knowing where the mystery controls were located, he would follow this route. (btw, small error near km 16, and it misses a nearby control, so the actual overall route should actually be slightly more than 33 km)

The logo was designed by Pittsburgh-based graphic artist and illustrator John Hinderliter. Notice at how the map shown is a reproduction of the actual park map. More of John's work can be seen at his website.
