Our traditional season finale was once again the Score-O on Mt Royal.  This year with 50 controls, a time  limit of 2.5 hours, and special Rambler controls. Despite the wet conditions we had a great turn out, including some runners as far as Ottawa.

The course had 5 “Rambler” controls, which were distributed in 5 different sections of Mt Royal. Orienteers who collected all 5 “Rambler” controls did the “full ramble” on the mountain and received extra points. Great that many participants went for the long run (9 of 46 women, 41 of 73 men, and 10 of 36 teams).

Thanks to course setter Sven von Fellenberg for making all this happen, the volunteers and all the participants for coming out, it was a blast. Until next time!
