Snowshoe, West Virginia – September 2005
We heard a rumor about this “Snowshoe” contest earlier in the summer, and the first thing Nature Boy thought of was MOUNTAINS! We do a lot of backpacking out this way, and would never miss a contest up in beautiful West Virginia. The contest did not disappoint. For a first time contest things were run very well. The organizers were very much in tune with the teams’ needs, and also seemed very interested in knowing how they can improve for next year. Unfortunately, since it was a first time event, only 8 teams registered and got to experience this wonderful contest, but they all seemed to have a blast! It came down to a half a point, but Dizzy Pig was able to cap off a dream season with yet another Grand Championship! Don’t miss this great event in 2006. I think it will be even better the second time!
