The Chinook Council Great Escape

October 10, 2018

After much rest and recuperation, the Great Escape Team reviewed the scores and found there was a problem with the formulas on the Venturer totals and we found some missing cards in one of the transportation vehicles.

 NEW Great Escape scores will be posted next week.

 Winners for Scouts - no change

1st = 1st Aidrie - B at 65 points

2nd = 272 RRRO - A at 59.83 points

3rd = 239 Northern Hills  - B at 59.66 points


Individual Venturer

1st = Jonathan Churchill - 401 Woodcreek A = 40 points

2nd = Jakob Hettinga - 18th Calgary = 39 points

3rd = Peter Ursem - 159 Silver springs Scenic Acres = 34 points


Overall Company Winners

1st - 401 Woodcreek A = 40 points and 1 player

2nd - 18th Calgary = 14.55 points and 9 players

3rd - 77 East Glenmore/210 McKenzie = 14.33 points and 6 players


Prizes will be given out next week, we will only be retrieving the company trophy and issuing out new awards to the rest. Sorry for the confusion.
