2006 - Year 5 - Capilano Midsummer Night Run

Capilano Night Run 2006
Starter Photo
32 Starter - 32 Finishers

Only one person forgot her flashlight, nobody got lost, no attacking bears, skunks or raccoons, no weirdos hiding in bushes and no injuries to report. Just a relaxing, midsummer run through a beautiful night time canyon followed by an amazing potluck spread (with illumination this year) at the yellow beacon. Not a bag of chips to be seen. What a healthy bunch we all are. 

Thanks for all to come out and contribute.  Thanks to the loonies who supplied enough crazy talk to last a life time (do I need to mention FFR) and thanks to the runners who tackled 3 CFA events within a 24hour time frame and still had enough humph left to party.

World's Best Potluck Spread

Wow!  Since Ethelyn and I were crewing rather than running, it was a test of our willpower to not sample while we were setting up the potluck table.  There was an incredible variety of appies, main courses and deserts.  Obviously a lot of love went into all of the home baked goodies and a lot of thought into the  variety of dishes.  What were those honey-dipped timbit things?  Were they Indian?  Iranian?  And the potato salad with the bacon it it...and the home made fried chicken.  Elke, I polished-off your Jagermeister while doing the dishes.  Sharon, thank you for donating your prize bottle of Hungarian wine from the Burnaby Mountain run.  I took a photo or 2 of the spread and will try to put it in this note later.

It was a beautiful night and a fantastic opportunity to catch up with a lot of old friends and make some new ones.  Congrats to all who ran on trails for the first time in the night as well as all of the veteran night runners.  (As a host, too bad you can't get a prize, Sibylle.  With 5/5 events to your credit, you are going to be tough to beat when it comes to the "Most Summer Night Runs" category.) 

Thank you, Sibylle, for organizing and managing another great night run!
