Organizer: Chris Ling (Event Director)


What a great afternoon on the UVic Campus. Despite promised rain, an event in glorious sunshine (mostly).

Good to see lots of old and new faces to enjoy our first event since March 2021.

Thanks to Leigh Bailey for registration set up, map printing and SI support. Scott Sheldrake for more printing, help and SI on the day. Kerstin Burnett for check-in and control collection, Jeremy Lawrence for set up assistance; and Theresa Chan, Angus and Taiyo Forsyth, and Brett, Magdalena and Sophia Carter for control collection. All your help was much appreciated. My apologies if I have forgotten anyone.
