Carole Groleau Oh my...great memories, flying down Mt Baker w my Bike as part of this team...on this Sea to Ski Race in the USA. This was our team... 1st person, Bobby Smith hopped into his X-country ski boots & skied to the top of the downhill slalom to pass the baton...or whatever it was...that I cant remember as yes it was a while back....early 80.s. Then, Eddie Boisjolie slalomed downhill w his Dynastar skis, then passed the baton to John Carr, who ran...I believe it was 8-10 km km...still going downhill, then passed me the baton, to bike...like 20 or so km, I then passed the baton to Carl Simms & Coco Cote...(take a close look at the pics...coco is on his toes..LOL) where they canoed like far, far down this river then they finished off by passing the baton to the last 2 guys of the team, Norm Banfield and Oh my,,,sorry I cant remember his partners name...anyways they sailboat tacking across the lake to the finish line. Another one of the many great memories that I will forever cherish from the Chilliwack PERI...
