Rumsey was one of the Adrian Zissos favorite places to orienteer. Sadly Adrian past away suddenly earlier this year. We invite all orienteers to join us on Thanksgiving weekend in a Barebones style event in a tribute to Adrian who has been instrumental in growing our sport. Few people get to see this area of Alberta and it is indeed an incredible area to enjoy! Running can be fast and navigation can be challenging at this unique Alberta prairie park. And did I mention the hills!!!!! Come on out and you can experience it for yourself! Check back for further information as to courses and start times.
