Map clarification

THL Matheus Reyner, Publicity, GWWX, has offered a mapping clarification for Great Western War X.

His Lordship writes:

It seems event site is rather fickle about which online mapping services will get you to the correct location.

We suggest using mapquest or yahoo , as they have the best accuracy for the event site.

You could also simply visit: http://www.caid-gww.org/dir.html and input your address into the form provided there to get directions.

Thank you
