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: Chris Benn, Membership/Registrar: Karen Lachance, Trainer
This event is at Cates Park – North Vancouver's largest seaside park with views on Indian Arm and Burrard Inlet.
6:20pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
6:30pm Starts begin for both courses
7:45pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Two courses will be offered, one of which is Easier with a traditional point to point structure and suitable for beginners/families. The approximate length is just under 2 kms.
The other course is Longer/Harder and will have a “dogbones” format which is when there are pairs of controls linked by a line. The dogbones can be taken in any order, however, when you start on a bone you have to go to the other control on the bone before you can continue to the next dogbone. An approximate distance for the course is between 3.5-4 kms.
Meet at the covered picnic area. There is usually plenty of parking spots close to the picnic area.
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.
