First one is the IOF MC at the completion of ISOM1947. the fodder rack, introduced for the first time, gives it away.

A Canadian finished in the Women's top ten (6th I believe) at that same event in Dundas Valley- Denise de Monte.

Hammer: can you post the WC Course?

I doubt I could even answer well known World Cup trivia questions, let alone obscure ones.

Nev: I picked up the rest of the OOA archives from my dad's on Friday. There are hundreds of pictures.

There is also a set of caricatures any HKF'er would enjoy...

...along with the original drawings of some sort of satirical O-themed graphic art series (comic book style).

Dorky shirts should be made, so that they can end up at a vintage shop.

I'll be handing everything over to the OOA board.

Wonderful photos, Klepperton! Please get in touch so we can figure out next steps with the OOA Archives subgroup. It looks like we shouldn’t take any more boxes to Guelph.

The 1980'ies was a very frustrating time for Norwegian male runners who were worldwide top-ten or so:

That wasn't good enough to qualify for the team when Norway followed up a podium sweep one WOC with a top 4 sweep the next time. :-)

BTW, I ran an event yesterday on the map that Tore Sagvolden is trying to extend southwards to his summer cabin. The map was started by Egil W Iversen, another of those national team runners:

I think it's safe to say that the next 90 minutes will set a world record for most people simultaneously looking at topographical contour lines.
