Hi Bob, the organizers for the Lake Louise loppet cancelled the event this morning, given the prospect of -35 degree windchill for the start of the race tomorrow. The CSC website says 75% of the race fee will be reimbursed to those who registered in advance. I just wrote Helen Isaac and asked her to tell Alasdair not to worry about refunding 75% of my $35 fee. Think of all the work and resources (food already purchased, etc.) that goes into a race of this magnitude. The club is almost certainly going to lose money with this cancellation. Here is a suggestion: would you consider putting up a short message letting your readers know the race was cancelled, and wouldn’t it be generous of us racers if we advised CSC not to worry about refunding our registrations? I want to stress I am not telling YOU what to do; this is a suggestion only. I reckon merely by not going to the race I am saving about $25-35 on gas and of course I won’t be staying the night in Lake Louise. Thanks, Andree
