EMBARGO: The 2015 Conquer the Crossroads Rogaine course is EMBARGOED effective January 20th, 2015. This means that all portions of Jackson-Washington State Forest are OFF LIMITS to all eventual competitors whether they are currently registered or not! Embargo will be in effect through Saturday April 4th, 2015. This embargo is being imposed in order to provide the most "level playing field" for all teams. Please respect the spirit of this rule. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at info@indyo.org.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL NEED THE WAIVER FORM FOR EACH TEAM MEMBER!  Bring them with you the morning of the event. Thanks!


TRAFFIC/CONSTRUCTION:  There is a lot of construction on I-65 south of Indy.  It shouldn’t affect early morning travel that much, but it would be prudent to allow some extra time.  The NCAA final four will be held in Indy this weekend.  The first games are Saturday night.  This shouldn’t affect most teams, but teams heading south and north of Indy might want to keep this in mind.

CAMPING:  There is camping available near the start at Knob Lake and at Starve Hollow SRA.  See DNR’s website for details.

PARKING:  Parking next to the shelter is limited to event volunteers.  Teams should park in the lot just below the shelter.  Rogaine teams are encouraged to carpool.  At the very least, meet at one of the other lots in the campground, and park one vehicle at the start area.  Parking at campsites is restricted to registered campers only.  Please respect this.

WATER:  The taps in the campgrounds are still off.  Teams should plan on carrying their own water for the entire course.

VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED:   Event Director Frank Baukert can still use some help during the day on Saturday, especially in the morning and afternoon manning the race HQ.  Volunteers wouldn’t have to stay the entire day.  Also, more help picking up controls would be greatly appreciated. If you can lend a hand for any length of time, please contact Frank directly at 317-709-6591 as soon as possible.
