Gerry Nicol reckons we should provide food at all our events just like the Canada Birthday 133 km event. We used to & still do for the Pacific Populaire 100 km event.
It was always difficult to assess how many to provide for. As a result, those members with freezer cabinets would find their storage facility loaded up with Rando food stuffs awaiting the next event where it was planned to use it up.
I have always maintained that the answer is not to stop providing food but to only provide it for those who enter the event a week in advance. Those who turn up on the day get a different colour control card and no food. By making no difference in the entry fee there is an incentive for pre-entry.
