Armed with GPS units, you and your team will “race” against other teams by attempting to complete required taskson the refuge first. Teams will be given a set of coordinates where they must try to locate using a GPS unit. Once at that location, teams must work together to complete a task. When that task is completed, teams will receive the next set of coordinates. Those who complete all tasks and arrive at the finish first wins!
