Thank you, I was really excited :)

This means a lot to me, not just from the financial aid, but it also has given the confidence that I needed to know that I was have been heading down the right path, by making orienteering my primary sport and making speed skating mroe of a hobby/cross training.

Sorry Guy ;P

Yesterday I won the Iain Wilson Character Through Competition Award, which means that I will receive a $1000 grant to help pay for travel expenses as I go to high level competitions! It will go towards helping me pay for my trip to Switzerland this summer :)

Wow! Congrats indeed! Well deserved!

Though I didn't know the competition was open to non-US orienteers...

Was CAOC's a match, or independent of the Wilson Award?

Thanks Charlie I'm looking forward to an amazing year of orienteering. I hope to thank everyone in the CAOC soon :)

Both of these grants help me so much, I can't express my gratitude enough!
