This will be a shorter scramble as I will be celebrating the night before and have to be back in Calgary at a reasonable time Saturday.
I will be meeting people out at the trail head at 10:15 am and not in Calgary for this event, people coming from Calgary will have to coordinate their own carpool from Brentwood. People coming from Calgary should meet at 9:00 am.
