We were up in the great white north also known as Alberta. This is the third time some of us have been there and the first time Neutral Sans Frontieres showed its behind the scenes face to the world.
What is NSF? It's a collaboration of people who have been working for and providing service to races, teams and events for the last 17 or so years. If you wanted to add up the experience we'd have to bust out a calculator.
Providing event support isn't necessarily difficult, organizing the logistics, people and equipment are the real challenges especially when it's in another country. Yes, sure we get it. Canada is connected, however it's far and it's not easy to just take a bunch of equipment there. PAPERWORK and PLANNING are the key.
