Breaking Away

Trip Payne

Each subject mentioned in the flavortext leads to a complete list of items in that category (for example, "orienteering" leads to the compass directions NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, and WEST).  All of these items, minus one, are to be placed in the larger grid in spaces with identically colored borders; the remaining item "breaks away" from the group and is placed somewhere in the smaller grid.

When the smaller grid has been filled, an extra word appears near the center: ONTARIAN.
