I was just looking at this picture, and I noticed that the ribbons on their medals are different from the ones received at all of the US regionals I’ve been to. Is this a new development?
Nope - the Canadian events have been using the ribbons with red maple leafs and white backgrounds since at least 2004. Now something new (I think) I noticed this year were some truly snazzy wider Olympic-style ribbons for the GTR Chairman’s Award winners. Perhaps 771 would have a picture of one of those.
Two of possibly the best designs, with two of the best drive teams that I have EVER seen. Some of our scouters were having fun calling them “Metric Beatty” and “Metric Beatty Jr.”.
I can not wait 'till IRI.
