Mike's most anticipated local OCR event finally happened!  FIT Challenge and Newbsanity teamed up and created an OCR Extravaganza that appears to have a bright future!

We drove about 5 and a half hours to get to Binghamton, NY and as expected it was worth it!  In addition to running a lap of both courses Mike got close to 20 interviews with people who made the event as special as it was!

Be sure to follow and support FIT Challenge and Newbsanity as they are two of the remaining local Northeast OCRs and that is due to their strong leadership and fantastic communities!

Also, shout out to Asa Coddington from Viking OCR for some fun pictures from the event, check to see if you're in some!
