Discussion: Sign-up now!
in: Raid the Sanctuary;
Only a couple of days left to enter. Most of the sites are tagged, the boulders are getting bigger all the time, and I've pigged out on wineberries.
The woods are wonderful, needless to say.
how many teams signed up?
Anybody need a partner? I'll be in the neighborhood that day.
Not many, as far as I know (the Sanctuary is handling entries), which is why I posted the message. Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can sleep through the deadline. I anticipate at least fifteen teams, hopefully a bunch more...
Feel free to do some last minute advertising.
Also, teams that enter now will have their names on their bibs...
More events should have names on bibs. First time it happened to me was NAOC 2010. I made sure to have them at "O, ftw!", since it was only another 5 cents per bib to have that.
Pavlina and I will be there.
@biggins (or someone else). I might go if a partner turns up.
Team names should be in by tomorrow afternoon to make it onto the bibs.
Charlie - sounds good, lets do it.
Hi--any more info about the race? Do we need any special tools? Start @ 9AM?
Who is racing?
No (but working on it). I'd bring fluids (only three water stations planned). Yes (well, 9.15, but walk to start at 9).
Team BG Elite
No Adult Supervision
Sailor and Landlubber
Viking Course (5+km)
Greg & Charlie
Pity the Breton girls are away, I don't know who to put my money on.
Can you divulge who's on what team, please?
I need to talk to my bookie ASAP.
No Adult Supervision = Mike Ball and David Levine
(bookie should be giving very long odds)
I don't have that information, actually.
It seems like it will be quite the international race though... almost as many countries represented as teams.
That's CSU, Inc., mister.
Greg & Charlie is Greg and Charlie. (Or biggins and Charlie, if you prefer.)
Currently 10 Barbarian teams, 7 Viking.
Maps are printed. OfficeMax is infinitely better than Fedex.
I hope the results include team members' names...
@guyO - Just like baseball and football right?
Just like orienteering... ;-)
Baseball players are listed in the box score, but only the ones who got in the game.
The participants will all know each other intimately by the end of the race.
Excellent, Neal. Thanks very much. That was quite a nice spread provided by the folks from the Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary people are great.

PS Guy, the Latecomers won :)
Great event Neil, thanks for organizing!
great fun. Hotdogs at 11:30, yum.
Yes--awesome! Sanctuary people are great, and so are you. The woods get an honorable mention--spectacular! Some of those hillsides with the low skein of grass were almost too much. It is like a fantasy forest.
Those bibs look like they turned out nicely.
Maps are now up on the picasa page. You may need the instructions to follow what was going on - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/39397168/RaidRulesBarbari...
Thanks are also clearly due to dontgetlost.ca
Lots of unfamiliar faces...
...a GOOD thing!
Excellent courses - truly in the spirit of the DontGetLost runs! Great woods, great weather, and great food. Can't ask for more than that! Thanks to all who put this on.

Hmmm, AP doesn't seem to like extra spaces so results look ugly!
Try <SPAN STYLE="font-family: monospace"> ... </SPAN>
Oh yeah, much preferred in my book. Sorry about the spaces, you probably need the nonbreaking space for AP not to optimize it away.
