Race is based upon "The Clash of the Titans." Checkpoints will be various statues in Norfolk, Ghent, ODU, and Portsmouth. It's called Medusa's Revenge because "The Statue Race" is pretty boring. The manifest will ask specific questions about the statues or their dedication plaques to ensure good sportsmanship.

Winning the race will depend on your knowledge of the Portsmouth Ferry schedule and landing points, which could subtract or add 30 minutes to your time.

13 checkpoints over a minimum of 13 miles (not including ferry travel distance).

The red ones will be single-sided Spoke Cards. The full color will be backing for the double-sided Prize Cards.

And, yes, I did find all 3 prizes for next Saturday.

That's right. The statue race has a name. Hopefully people will show, and hopefully they will have fun.

Many thanks to David in Portsmouth for all his help.

See you there!
