Here is the new poster of the BC Champs in the East Kootenays this September:
Here is a great "what's where" map for those coming to the COCs in Whistler later next week. (Just remember to respect the embargo for the sprint, you can't use this map when you are in the village before the sprint - you can certainly be in Whistler Village but you can't have a map with you)
Wed night’s event is in a relay format. This relay can be done in teams or individually. There will be easy loops (experienced orienteers can test their running speed) and more advanced loops. Remember - The O-Store will be in Calgary & set up at the Wed night meet selling O-shoes, compasses and gaitors, glasses, clothing – all things orienteering you can’t really find in sporting goods stores. Now is your chance!! Debriefing social suggestion is The Hose Hound Neighbourhood Pub at 1030 9th Ave SE . First one there can reverse a table. Weather – Wed looks like it could go to 26 degrees so remember to bring water with you!
It will be a hot evening (30+) this Wednesday. We will meet in the Nose Hill Berkley Gate parking lot on 14 Street NW. Sylvestre has set 4 courses: Beginner: Course 1 - 2 km, Advanced: Course 2 - 2.5 km, Intermediate: Course 3 - 3 km, Long: Course 4 - 4.3 km. Eileen has checked the courses. The trails are dry. Grasses are tall. Wild flowers are blooming. Bring something to drink while on a course, bug spray and gaiters if you have any! We'll begin at 18:30 as usual
On-line registration for this weekend's Alberta Orienteering Championships is available until Thursday. You can also sign up on the day. There's a sprint on Friday evening in newly-remapped Coronation Park. The forest events are both near Smoky Lake: Saturday Middle Distance event on the Wahstao map; Sunday the Long on the White Earth map. All the details are at Straight to Zone 4 registration:
