Amazing performances from our Canadian athletes in today's Middle Distance final at the World Orienteering Champs - 11th for Emily Kemp (Ottawa), 28th for Louise Oram (Vancouver), and 55th for Eric Kemp (Ottawa).
Last evening we had the opportunity to hold our weekly orienteering event at Paskapoo slopes. As organizer Clarence commented, “it might be our last opportunity to orienteer there”, as there is a proposal for a large development including 2 malls and residential housing. This is a well-used recreational area in the city by mountain bikers, hikers, runner, walkers and us on occasion. There has been a petition created against this development. Here is the link if you are interested in joining the growing number of people who want to try to “save” this unique recreational area within the City! Feel free to pass it on to anyone else:
Happy Canada Day!
Early Bird pricing for the BC Champs in the east Kootenays (so really close to home) closes at July 6th!
On their way to the Canadian Orienteering Championships the Canadian O-Store will drop by Calgary and setup shop at our Wednesday Night event on July 23rd at Pearce Estates. You can checkout their inventory here (although they probably won't bring everything): So if you're not going to the COC's you can still get some excellent O gear without having to pay for shipping! And even if your're going to the COC's, come by and get first dips on the goods.


Foothills Orienteering is an active club of several hundred members in southern Alberta. We organize races and training throughout the year, and have programs for youth and adults. The club has a strong history of orienteering in the Calgary area for over 30 years.
