Another member also reminded me Larry wrote an acccount of this in the final issue of On The Wheel. I believe Larry is a Toronto (or vicinity) resident, which would explain why he isn't on the US list. Do we have all this correct Larry? Is there a Canadian Randonneur organization which is the counterpart of RUSA? While we're on the subject, are audax/ randonneur events in UK sponsored by CTC or is there a separate organization?

Jerry Moos
