2012 Frostbite 45

This was the first year that YARS provided coverage for the Yellowknife Multisport Club event known as Frostbite 45.  That said YARS has provided some support for some of its events, including radio coverage for its cycle race to Hay River. 

This event was quite challenging for YARS.  It was really cold (-35 or so).  Although we were in heated tents, we also had to be outside for a fair amount of time.  The Multisport Club had radio equipment but we found ourselves relying on amateur radio equipment instead.

A very interesting event and very good preparation for the Ski Loppet.
