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 for more information on some of the areas where we need help.

Description for this WET

Primary Organizers:

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.

Safety Precautions:


Parking/Start/Finish Locations:

Meet at the covered picnic area. There is usually plenty of parking spots close to the picnic area.
