While the adults were running the THOMASS, the kids were running a special race with cup-cake ingredients at the controls. The end result - a load of great cupcakes and big smiles
Pre-runners came across a mother elk and her brand new babycalf. To avoid disturbing the animals we moved the finish line a little earlier. Here's a picture of the unsteady calf alongside her watchful mum.
The results are available for the Chase and the THOMASS.
Still to come from Saturday's events are the Setup results, and the combined Setup/Chase standings

Organizers have confirmed Canmore as the site for the 18th annual Barebones orienteering weekend. Canmore is relatively easy for the organizers (several who live there), and an easy and pleasant weekend, especially for the Calgary crowd. To make the orienteering exciting, we'll be using as many mass-start, head-to-head races as we can.
