|Meet Director:||Bobbie Ross|
|Course Setter:||David Ross|
It was a cool clear night, with moist marshes, no moon, and coyotes howling. This was the setting for the night O during the 3rd annual Tri-O at Manganese Mines, N.S. Twenty-nine competitors with lights raced through the forest; at Gitten's Lodge just east of Truro, N.S. to finish at a bonfire. Most participants were pleased, none were spooked, and all had soggy feet.
The lodge served as base camp for those you enjoyed the gluten free vegan cuisine of chef Bobbie Ross. A post afternoon sprint meal of squash soup and red pepper hummus served as a light top up before the race. After drying off from the night O diners were treated to a potatoe/lentil/coconut milk and sanbar paste dish, pomengranate salad with candied walnuts before a sweet potato pie finale.
Six hardy souls stayed overnight at the lodge, sleeping in the bunks to be greeted by more culinary delight in the morning. It consisting of quinoa porridge cooked in apple juice topped off with sliced almonds,blueberries,strawberries and other fresh fruit.
The lodge, which is used as an out-door education centre, served as a peaceful, warm base for our near end of season event.
