Oktoberfest weekend action ended with the exciting and unpredictable Checkpoint Challenge. I blasted around the trails on my bike trying to capture some of the action at various checkpoints. I regret not getting to the “catch a chicken and get an egg” station but I was still recovering from laughing at GRP sculler Steve Whelpley trying to run in soaking wet cut-offs while carrying his hatchet.
Congratulations to the Craftsbury Crazies – that’s the team to beat next year!
