It definitely is getting darker sooner these days and so we'll have our last Wednesday night events of the season this coming Wednesday (October 5th). And it will be a bit more special as we're holding it just outside of town (in Cochrane) on a brand new map at Camp Jubilee. As daylight is disappearing fast the courses will open at 5:30 PM and close at 7:30 PM. And after the courses close we'll have a volunteer appreciation pizza party at the camp for everyone who has volunteered this last (very busy) season. Please sign up on the event page (https://orienteeringcalgary.ca/events/view/2634) so that we know how much maps to print and pizza and pop to buy :-) We hope to see lots of you on Wednesday!

For first time beginners we offer an Intro to Orienteering clinic, an active 90 minute taste of the sport. Once you have this under your belt continue with the Basics and Beyond program.
