Thank you everyone at Whaleback for a great provincials!
The most important thing by far at these events is that the kids have fun and everyone reports having a blast!
Well marked, well marshalled courses meant no issues with going off course and everyone was all smiles at the finish. I feel silly to have been worried about that but we have had issues with that in the past that left kids it tears. Great, great job on that but Stephenville always does that so well.
Volunteers were fantastic – including someone keeping a blanket around Rebecca (5) right up until she started, which made her day! Special thanks to the volunteers on the far end of the course who patiently waited for all finishers and had smiles and encouragement for everyone both days! Doug great announcing. Alex said he had a lot fun helping out with identifying the racers coming in. Not sure what that was all about (hope he wasn’t a nuisance) but he says he had a blast.
Grooming was fantastic despite challenging and ever changing weather conditions.
Really nice course choice – the twisty bits at the far end allowed everyone to see the other racers and made it a lot more fun!
Adjustments to the stadium layout worked really well. Really good use of the space.
Great jobs on chips, bibs etc. Timing was great, as usual Patrick!
Banquet was fantatsic! If you know who made the curry dish I would kill for the recipe! Food services at the canteen were great, as always. Many talented cooks in Stephenville!
Communication was really good – everyone knew loops and distance changes. Often an area that is hard to manage.
Really great job, please pass our thanks to all the volunteers! Without your hard work the sport would not be possible. We really appreciate everything you did this weekend! Have a great week !
