Organizer: Thomas Graupner (Event Director)
Map: St. Malo Park
(This event was scheduled for March 1st, but because of the extremely cold weather and other reasons, it was rescheduled to March 15th.)
This event used to be called the St. Malo Ski-O, but since so many participants have chosen to wear running shoes, snowshoes, or winter boots instead, it is now called the St. Malo Snow-O.
There will be categories for skiing, snowshoeing, and running/walking. The format will be score-based, meaning that competitors basically try to visit as many controls as possible within a time limit. Controls can be visited in any order and there will be a score bonus for being early and a score penalty for being late. The time limit will be 90 minutes.
Depending on the temperature, this event may be the first one to use the MOA's new SFR electronic timing equipment. The timing cards can be worn under gloves and are less costly to replace if lost. Note that results probably won't be instantaneous as the organizer is still figuring out the software.
Please bring a watch, a compass, and a completed membership/waiver form if you are not yet a 2014 member. This event is free for 2014 members since it will be your first event of the year. (Memberships cost $5.00 for Adults and $3.00 for Juniors.) Depending on your mode of transportation (skiing, running, etc.), you may also want to bring something for holding your map. The maps will be on 11 x 17 inch paper inside 12 x 18 inch plastic map cases. String and tape will be available for those who want it. Finally, don't forget to bring warm clothing.
Parking will be at the organizer's home, which is across the lake from St. Malo Provincial Park. See the road map below. The actual start/finish will be on the lake, about 100 m from the park.
If you intend to come, please register by using this web site or by contacting Thomas Graupner (firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-347-5764). Please register by Thursday, March 13th to ensure that a map will be printed for you.
