Wells Gray Riders Association has tracked down some sharp-eyed talent for its first annual Man Tracker Invitational.
Terry Grant, the original star of the TV series “Mantracker”, will be the special guest for the event.
Although Grant likely will not be directly taking part in the three-day event, he will be giving workshops on tracking and helping to oversee things, said Candus Graffunder, one of the organizers.
Organizers hope to have 12 teams compete in a round-robin format, she said.
Unlike the chases in the television series, which can last several days, those in the Wells Gray Riders’ event will only last a few hours each.
They will even be staged in such a way that the trackers and the “prey” will have to pass close to a viewing area, so that spectators will be able to watch some of the action.
The first annual Wells Gray Man Tracker Invitational will take place at Nakiska Ranch, July 25 – 27.
