JASON KARLS, Myella & Elva Karls went on a camping trip / music festival over the weekend. The venue was at Helsing Junction Farm, just south of Olympia, WA. There were a lot of great bands - all from K records (calvin johnson/kimya dawson/tender forever...). The shows lasted well into the night w/ the disco on the farm lasting to 2:30 am. It was Elva's first camping trip and she did awesome; even sleeping through the thumping music!
KELLY SHULTE placed 3rd at the Santa Barbara sprint triathlon this weekend. No pic of Kelly but the plaque is the important picture.
JANETTE KIM from the Burnaby office participated in the Mitsubishi City Chase on Saturday which is an urban adventure that is a combination of a smaller scaled Amazing Race plus scavenger hunt. It takes about 4-6 hours for average teams to get the course done - there were 800 of us Chasers. In teams of two, we used limited resources, determination and the ability to make decisions on the fly as we searched for ChasePoints scattered in unknown locations throughout the city. At each ChasePoint, there were a series of challenges designed to test the teams with a variety of physical, mental, and otherwise adventurous tasks. Each group had to complete 10 out of 25 ChasePoints. All of the teams ran, walked and could only use public transit to navigate our way throughout the city, while calling family and friends for help, accessing the Internet wherever, and we even had random strangers give us a hand. The short of the challenges my team did was: dragonboat racing, scaling a climbing wall, doing some bootcamp, doing a blindfolded dunking for pop cans in a large vat of water, etc. There were some ChasePoints where people had to eat bugs (I ate a cricket last year) and get naked but fortunately, I was able to avoid those ones! All in all a great way to spend the day running around Vancouver!
ANDREA RISHMAWI, Acct Exec Swimming ran the 4 mile End of Summer Fire Run this weekend, put on by Stay Classy.
