BCP168 Edmonton (Velodrome)
As we walked over from BCP116 we had flashbacks from BCP021 in the football field in Red Deer. So much unmarked grass! Except here there were markings here--a soccer field had been outlined with little cones--and the GPS wanted us on the playing field. With the players. Fortunately, the players were in the middle of the field some distance away not doing too much so we walked on with outward confidence, secretly crossed fingers and mentally preparing an answer if we were challenged. As long as they didn't start practicing shots on the goal we were in front of or playing a game, we hoped no one would object. Unlike the lengthy search for BCP021, Mrs Shark was very pleased and relieved when Mr Shark demonstrated his excellent skill (or luck, she's not picky) and almost immediately found the cap. Whew! We wouldn't have searched long, expecting as we were, a banishing shout from the coach at any moment. Again different from the Red Deer cap this one needed little preparation before we could do our business and clear the field. It's hard to believe that no one noticed us, but perhaps they were stayed by confusion by our short bee dance before dropping and taking pictures of the ground! It was a stroke of luck in timing and a quick find that we got this one! Great sport to find this and BCP116; thanks, outforthehunt!
