Keeping Canadian ARDF team tradition intact --> Rick Williams (VE7TK) decided that he had to maintain the Canadian ARDF Team tradition of ignoring paths and going straight to the transmitter! This happened at the last, just finished, Friendship Radio Games (ARDF competition) held in Portland, USA. The back story was that there was a sign on the bridge saying Park Boundary (new since the site survey according to Dale) so Rick was convinced that transmitter number 5 had to be on the far side of the River. So he crossed the River on a log jam. After finding the fox he continued on the far side of the River looking for another elusive fox. Finally, with time running out he decided to wade through the creek a second time and make a mad dash for the finish. Not only was the mud deeper than he thought (note the tide line on the back of the shirt) but the bank on the far side was undercut, steep and high, causing considerable difficulty in getting up (note the mud on front). Whatever was in the water did not wash out! Last seen, the underlying cuts, scrapes and contusions were healing well but colorful. Note that he kept the receiver dry! The competition was limited to a maximum of 90 minutes and by crossing the creek for a second time Rick was able to make it back to the finish line in 88 minutes and 18 seconds!! Transmitter number 5 was quite far from the creek, the reflections from the steep gully caused massive confusion (I wasted 40 minutes on this one before I ignored directions and went only on signal strength). It was definitely the one that caused people the most difficulty without the confusion of wondering whether you had gone out of bounds. The Canadian Team was very proud of Rick’s effort, the rest of the field were just puzzled! No one else even considered going into the creek.
