Nova Scotians at the 1978 Canadian championships in Halton Falls ON

Here is a story from the 1978 Canadian championships in Halton Falls, Ont:

After successfully hosting the 1977 COC’s, the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia sent a large group of 47 competitors to the 1978 COC’s in Halton Falls, Ontario.  The team booked a full VIA train cart and travelled together up and back from the event.  Although a long trip  to take on the train (about 24 hours) everyone had a ton of fun with lots of card games a laughter to pass the time.
Peter Jennegren, Oivind Naess and Anne Katherine Naess.
