Collected and not released yet?

From your track - a lot of maze, back and forth, then "Oh, yeah, the finish is way over there - go ski to it..."

Yeah they took them all. Think we get them tomorrow.
The EOC guys started at the arena, skied down to the busy area (all one leg), did five laps, then skied back. That would have been most of the course for the masters, so we got bussed down to the busy area to start.

Whoa, looks like your very close to both the 2016 Jukola terrain and Russia. I'm guessing neither of these facts is especially helpful. Do you perchance have a Fiesta!! in which to put your skis?

When I was there years ago a couple of Germans talked me into skiing to the Russian border from town. Snow was transformed so it was easy crust skating. When we got to the "Frontier Zone" signs we stopped there and took pictures of each other. A minute or two later a police car arrived and two guys got out to give us a stern warning to go no farther. Much to my surprise I knew one of them. He was on Finnish Ski-O Team and had given me a ride from the bus terminal to our lodging a few days earlier.

My buddy Mark Tarnopolsky was telling me that there quite a few serious injuries at the race. Was thinking of you guys while
skiing at my cottage with crap loads of snow in the woods.
