Xenia would be Kilkare right? I ask because we race a few races at Edgewater with UMTR. We had a race at National Trails and 2 at Kilkare last year and there is a race scheduled at NT on August 6 and one at KilKare on August 20 this year. Maybe see you at one of those.

The UMTR is split into north and south divisions. I run the south's schedule and we didn't have a race at marion county. That was probably one of the north's races. There are a couple of races that both divisions will race at and NT is one of them. Kilkare was the south's race.
