i wouldnt say finding your events is that difficult, but it just depends what you have cause some of the events are just really really far apart. my friend had write it do it and then ornithology next to each other; she had to sprint to orni and still got there late.

The distance between Thayer (home base) and the field house is about a mile. So if you have one event in one place and one event in the other right after each other it may be difficult getting there in time althought i haven't had that happen to me before.

Okay, so it's a lot bigger than New Paltz then. I think I can deal.
