Marsh Dash 2013 was a success! Thanks to all those folks who came out and participated. Extra thanks to Robb, Jeannette, Doug, Tom, Leah and all others who helped out with the event.
There were some great costumes out this year! 11 clues were given to the participants. Some reported the clues being more challenging this year, but points were awarded to at least one team for each clue – although there were three clues where no team received full points. All the more challenging for the teams!
We had a new winner this year! Congratulations to the team Field of Streams – Erin Fieger, Ramona Clarke, Brenda Fieger, Barb Dean, Jim Elliott, Cheryl Verheist, and Aadon Fieger! They solved 17 points worth of clues and were the only team to finish in their allowable time, saving them from the docked points that the late teams all suffered!
A close second was the team of Leah Japp, Heather Leask, and Robb and Jeanette Taylor, with 16 points. Congratulations to the winners and all participants!
Other teams this year included: We run fast, The Marshals, Compass Quacks, the Individuals and the Whelan’s.
The proceeds from this race go to Friends of Wascana Marsh. The Friends received a cheque for $250 – thanks everyone!
