This summer Barebones will be the patently non-championship pre-event for the 2004 Canadian Championships. Join in the fun  of the ninth annual Barebones weekend and enjoy: five races in two and a half days, a laid-back atmosphere, world-class dining & entertainment, abundant ambience, and (need we mention?) fabulous orienteering courses � all with the usual promise of �hardly any� technical mistakes by the organizers. The races take place in a variety of breathtaking terrain on brilliant maps and the courses are short and technical to provide the perfect preparation for the Canadian Champs.
