good god man, you're alive!
as such i nominate you as chief safety and hydration officer for this event, and you need to bring the shot gun for a proper start sequence, bonus rippers for you if you can hit a duck while also starting a race close to the right time, penalty for blowing the shape into bits of tattered fabric.
Well, with duck and pheasant season closed I have to hang out here again as the hunting forums have gone all quiet. I gladly and humbly accept the post. If you want the bonus duck we'll have to hold the race after the third Saturday in September and before Jan 15, so probably better to keep the multi-sport aspect limited to sailing, drinking, and the ballet. Plus, despite the legal bounds of Toronto ending at the high water mark, I don't think Toronto's finest would be amused with hunting just off the end of the spit.
I will begin preperations this weekend. Please inform my wife I have important business to take care of and will otherwise occupied.
