For six years, the ELLT stage sequence has perfectly leveled the playing field. Rock climbing turned good golfers’ arms into crap. Mountain biking killed the legs of the basketball players. Due to unavoidable circumstances, we’re going to shake up the order this year, with the following schedule now already in The Book:
Thursday night, late afternoon: prologue stage, Adams Lane
Friday morning, relatively early: mountain bike at Willowdale
Friday afternoon, 3:30ish: golf at Rowley
Saturday morning, wicked early: soccer in Byfield
Saturday morning, 10am-1pm: rock climbing at MetroRock
Saturday afternoon, starting at 3: basketball, Adams Lane
I haven’t thought too much about the implications, other than a slight concern that Otto’s traditional Friday morning upheaval will be taking place over the handle bars rather than on the pitch.
