(includes A meets)
CO: The event in 1975 was my first ever O' meet.
KY: I took a "red eye" flight from Seattle to get to this meet. However, my commuter flight connection was cancelled and by the time I took the next flight and drove to the meet site, everyone had started. I begged for a copy of my map and ran the course on my own. This wasn't an official result...
