Christmas Party Dec 2008

We had a very good sized group of Timber Tamers show up at the annual Christmas party. As a nice seasonal touch – it started snowing just before the party started and kept up all evening. Part way through the festivities, it was announced that it was snowing like crazy. When the question was called in anyone was concerned – the response was a resounding, “NO!” Continue reading “Christmas Party Dec 2008”

In another stage of the competition the participants are challenged to navigate a course and find markers in specific locations which are hidden.
