Thank You EOOC for the great spring camp!

Thank you so much for organizing and hosting the 2019 Alberta Spring Camp. We had an excellent time.
Dorothy, Marylin and Geraint, Peter and Drew,
Thank you for being there on a 24-hour shift, doing everything to make us feel comfortable. From meal prep, cooking, activities, SI timing, etc.… I can’t imagine how you got everything lined up so well. You are super hosts for sure!
Event crew,
Thanks to Chris for delivering us food, water and packs while enduring a toasty bike ride which did not seem like a joyride. Greg, Tom and Garry thank you so much for spending extra time hanging controls.
Svoboda family,
Thank you for hosting and driving the Danish coaches to the camp. I am sure that everyone had loads of takeaways and great learning experiences with them. From the kids' comments, they sure enjoyed being coached by Jeppe and Astrid and experiencing the extended orienteering community.
 Thank you for going above and beyond to provide a great camp experience and helping to form the future generation of orienteering enthusiasts.
