That looks like a fun competition. During that weekend em I in russia competing in arctic trohpy. I have way to little time to play. Next year I em allowed to do one foreign comp. In norway there is today no real challenge comps and most of the foreign comps are like 2000km away. So doing comps in finland seems nice and kind of close. So if you know the dates for 2009 season it would be nice if you can post them here.
