Here are a few words from Pete:
"It has been a joyful experience managing the Trailers especially due to the willingness of all of the sortie managers in helping to provide exciting, and challenging at times, routes through our wonderful montane scenery week after week. As I said on Saturday, the time has come for me to step down and let the next generation take over but God willing, I will join Nora's group as sweep from time to time."
We certainly hope to keep him on the mountain and off the bowls green quite often!
It was a hot day and the route was quite gruelling, giving us good reason to refresh ourselves at Piero's house afterwards. The camera struggled to take decent pictures with the strong contrasts in light and shade on most of the route and the photographer struggled with the hills. ;) Still, it was a great finale to a fabulous year.
There were 40 Trailers signed in, but a few extras from Tim's group joined us and didn't do the paperwork so the total number was closer to 45.
Happy Holidays everyone. See you all on January 14th for our first trail of the year.
