Team Results

1. Calgary 30pts (1,6,8,15)
2. BC 38pts (2,4,13,19)
3. Edmonton 63pts (10,11,16,26)
4. Sask 92pts (12,18,28,34)
-----------------------

I would like to add a correction to the team results:

While many of us attempted to "internationalize" the results by competing
for countries of residence, dual-citizenship, or (in my case) birth, I think
my result ought to count for Calgary, particularly as Norway did not have a
complete team. Also, Eric Langhjelm was not counted for BC even though I'm
pretty sure that's where he's from. With these revisions, the team standings
look like this:

Calgary 18pts (1-3-6-8)
BC 26pts (2-4-7-13)
Edmonton 63pts (10-11-16-26)
Saskatchewan 92pts (12-18-28-34)
Ontario 95pts (17-20-25-33)
Quebec 128pts (5-21-50-52)

*If we count Seanna Robinson & Sue Pribaz as men, Ontario finishes with 62
points.

Anyway, with a total of 60 finishers, this is a record for participation in
a single race. The transition zone was chaos but we all survived. Just to
give you an idea of how crowded it was, I never saw Peter Cardle for the
entire race and I finished out in lane 4 to avoid all of the runners &
drinkers. I think, to a certain extent, the quality of performances
(especially for a shale track) can be attributed to a very large gallery of
Edmonton's finest mosquitoes. There was a lot of incentive to finish your
beer and get moving again!
