July 20th is the day that City Council decides on the re-zoning request for the proposed development on the Paskapoo Slopes. This space is a key natural area within the Calgary city limits and we want to see it stay as is. We love orienteering there! We need more natural areas in Calgary, not less. Show your support opposing the development. 1) Sign the petition and 2) attend the Council Meeting on July 20th if you can.
Orienteering in the New York Times!
A reminder that registration fees for the Canadian Orienteering Champs go up after July 3rd.
Over 20 Foothills Orienteering folk are at the Western Canadian Champs this weekend in Whitehorse. Have fun up there!!
Check out this incredible cake before it was was happily consumed at the orienteering event last night to salute Justine Scheck's last days working for Orienteering Calgary and Sogo Adventure Running before she heads off on an extended trip. Thanks Justine Scheck! You're awesome!
