A BIG thank you to all the volunteers (registration, timing and control setters and picker-uppers) - Tory, Marsha, Kitty, Marion, Oleg, Don B, and Brad, who braved the wet and cold to help out! Thanks to Brad for putting on his first WEO!

We had a surprisingly good turn out given the weather, and we thank all the participants who made the volunteer efforts worthwhile!

2023 Wednesday Evening Orienteering (WEO) Series

  • Regular orienteering on Wednesday evenings - this means in-person with control flags and SI units in the terrain from 6:30-8pm on the day of the event.
  • You will need an SI stick; you can borrow one from the club on the night of the event if you do not own one.
  • You will have to pre-register for the events.
    • You can pay for each session separately
    • You can sign up for the series and get a discount
  • The last day to register for each Wednesday event is the Monday evening before it to guarantee we have a map printed for you.
  • You will need to be a 2023 member of Foothills Orienteering (FWOC), a 2023 member of another Canadian orienteering club, or purchase a “day of the event membership”.
  • We will be using Maprun6 so, if you registered for the event, you can run anytime if you do not want to run on the evening of the event.
  • There will be about 20 Wednesday Evenings in the series.
