An illustrious 18 came forward today to determine if spring or winter weather would prevail. It turned out to be a little of both. The routes had 4s, 5s, and 6s launching in all directions only to convene on Westham Parkway to finish with the Westham Station and Bat Cave approach. 4s started with the “path in the woods” (lakewood, wood, beechwood), 5s to the main entrance and picked up the wooded trail and up Ridge Top, and 6s took the Boatwright hill, Honaker, Patterson route. Saab took us out.
