September 2 & 3 Course sweep

Week of September 2-8: Race admin (After action report to US Forest Service, USATF, etc).  Results will be posted as soon as possible (course cleanup and after action reports are the priority- if these are not done, future races may be at risk).  Emailing the RD to ask about the results slows down the process.
