In Pictures: Day 2 of the 24th Annual Revelstoke Glacier Challenge
By David F. Rooney
You could see the changes this weekend in the way the Glacier Challenge has evolved over the years.
Not that long ago teams often wore outrageous costumes, there were (non-ball) games in the Beer Garden Area, lots of off-duty players in the beer garden through the afternoon and evening, music all day and much more. But times have changed.
This Saturday the Beer Garden didn’t open until 3 pm, there were no weird outfits, no squirt gun fights, no dunk tank or other games and very few people in the Beer Garden in the later afternoon. It was not hard to see why, most players retired to their private camps after their games and remained there throughout the evening.
Oh, they were partying all right. They just weren’t partying in the Beer Garden.
This may mark a kind of maturation for the Revelstoke Glacier Challenge and then, again, it could change completely next year. We’ll see.
In the meantime, here are some photos from the second day of the Glacier Challenge:
