Thank You Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF)
OTF provided the grant that allowed Lappe to purchase the photo finish camera that captured the picture below, and Thunder Bay could not have hosted this NorAm race without this high tech equipment. OTF's contribution to our sport provides us the opportunity to become proficient in the use our new timing gear through use in local races and makes it possible for us to bid for more high level races. Thanks Ontario Trillium Foundation!
