Condensed Turkey Soup in a can? No way! The title here refers to one of the longest-running annual orienteering events in Ontario. Started way back around 1982, says Don Ross, long time TOC stalwart member, when a few friends from both the Ukrainian Orienteering Club and the Toronto Orienteering Club (UKR and TOC ... TURK, get it?) joined together to hold a fall event around Thanksgiving. If you connect the dots, you'll understand how the name Turkey Trot came to be.
This year's edition, let's call it the 36th annual Turkey Trot (a great approximation, but the spirit of the fact is correct), will be condensed into a single day, but not lacking at all in terms of content. Many of you asked for a compact version, and we are delivering on that suggestion.
Your hosts, as usual, are both the Ukrainian and Toronto Orienteering Clubs, with the assistance of the Gators, an affiliate of UKR. Come one, come all, gobble, gobble!
Please sign up online, only a limited number of extra maps will be available.
P.S. Did I forget to mention there will be the usual excellent selection of PRIZES for the winners and as draw prizes. Nice!
