General GVOC Call for Volunteers to Organize WETs and...--
GVOC WET organizers wanted for the 2014 Wednesdays! The 2014 calendar of WETs remains to be filled. If you see a blank Wednesday it means it is available! Let us know if/when you would like to put on a WET! Without volunteers, GVOC events cannot take place!
ALSO: we are also currently recruiting for volunteers to help with COCs in August 2014. See http://gvoc.whyjustrun.ca/pages/38 for more information on some of the areas where we need help.
Description for this WET
Event Director/Course Planner, Membership/Registrar, Trainer
Oak Park is a mixture of open park area, schools, and residential area. The George Pearson Centre and the Langara Gardens development in the Eastern half of map are private and will not have controls on their property.
6:30 Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
6:30 Starts begin
8:00 Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Two point to point courses will be offered. The "Short" course will be suitable for beginners; it will be about 2.5 km long with easy route choices. The "Long" course will be roughly 4.5km and will involve a bit more route choice.
Please be careful while crossing the roads on the map. They are not busy roads but there will still be some cars.
The start and finish will be located under the covered area behind the school on the NE corner of Laurel and 59th.
Parking is available on the street in front of the school.
Without volunteers, these events cannot take place. A hearty thanks to all those helping put this event on. If you would like to volunteer/help at upcoming WETs/WJRs or would like to organize a WET please let us know.
