Of all the things you learned from this race. There are a lot of RDs who, from my experience, don't reflect nearly this much. And it shows in their product. (i.e. if you don't have enough port-o-johns one year, that's a mistake. If it's every year …)
Writing a manual is on the list. The whole idea is to make it easier for other people to do the same thing, only better.
Excellent write-ups for the whole week. I could feel the exhaustion and determination come through. Really amazing job you all did, and you should be proud of it. And the lessons learned should be taken to heart by anyone who wants to try something like this in the future.
Quite an impressive week you all created.
Or maybe there is a manual (I am a firm believer in not re-inventing), but it may be in some Scandi language.
And thanks for a great time, I think we had a can-do get to it attitude. And without Allison working with Judy and I, things could have gone very badly (or not gone at all) with the awards ceremony (sorry we were not involved in the Sat. night one).
And for sure, I was impressed by Boris' name pronunciation!
I just want you to know that I´ve read some comments from the Swedish team + talked last night to Andrei Lamov and Magdalena Olsson (who are in my club).
They have all been very positive and thought the organizing and the courses were excellent :)
Bubo, where are the comments from the Swedish team? I'd love to see them.
Except from specifically asking Magdalena and Andrei I don´t really remember where I saw it. It may have been in local newspaper or social media.
There´s a piece on the races in Vermont in the latest issue of Skogssport (available digitally in the new Skogssport App - 50kr/issue or "free" if you´re a subscriber).
Also a pretty good article on FasterSkier:
Alex has no doubt seen this one but others might not have.
This is what has been published on the website for Svensk Orientering:
A few comments on how challenging the courses were.
