Charlotte MacNaughton is the keeper of the Orienteering Canada Facebook page and all our social media. She is a star at this. She is a star at so many things when it comes to orienteering in Canada. But today I (Anne Teutsch) will fill in for Charlotte. On Thursday, Charlotte's partner in life and orienteering, Adrian Zissos, died suddenly of a heart attack while skiing at the Canmore Nordic Centre. It is with shock and disbelief that Charlotte and Adrian's friends in the orienteering community learn this news. Adrian was a key player in orienteering in Canada. He was a visionary. He was a doer. He was a leader. He was passionate, energetic, and wise. If you did not know Adrian, but you are an orienteer in Canada, I can bet that you have benefited in some way from Adrian's involvement. Meet organization, orienteering photography, high performance programme, Canadian Championships, junior club programmes, the list goes on. As I try to come to terms with Adrian's death, the memories of all the things that have connected me to Adrian have been flooding my brain. I know I am not alone. So we have created a Facebook Group - Remembering Adrian Zissos. We encourage those who knew Adrian to contribute stories and memories. If you are not already a member, please send a request to join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/237980343613389 Charlotte - our deepest sympathies to you and to Adrian's family. Our hearts go out to you all.
