Yes it works well. Plus then we get to spend more time roaming around the finish centre which is a bonus since they almost always sell cake.

Wait cake is sold at Norwegian Orienteering events? Why was this never introduced to Canadian Orienteering??

Cake and waffles are the whole reason for going to Norwegian orienteering events.

Whoa, now there are waffles? Next you'll tell me there's pickled herring!

O-events are the only places in Norway where you reliably can get a nice slice of homemade cake for under $2.

The cake pricing is absolutely stellar at O events. I know that you have thoughts about the waffle pricing.

15kr go for it, 20kr reluctantly pay for it, 25kr stay the hell away.

Best food at a Canadian Orienteering event? Ottawa for NAOC?

I wasn't at that one, but at Barebones in Skookumchuck in 99 I seem to remember that they brought out a food truck serving fries. It was a billion degrees outside, but it was still a big hit.

Guess it would have been better with ice cream :).There was a food truck at COC in Hamilton... I seem to recall something like meatball sandwiches. There were definitely perogis and some other things some of the days at APOC.

COCs 2019 will hopefully feature poutine.

I am now 10% closer to buying a ticket to Blackmule or whatever the place is called.

At our weekend events, we usually have oranges, bananas, Costco muffins, sometimes potato chips. I think that's the main reason that my 8-year old grandson comes to the events - don't see him eating much fruit ; - )
