Description 1) A run through beautiful Mundy Park- the west side of it anyway. 2) and more importantly- Meghan's farewell picnic: come prepared!
This is a larger scale map, I think that it has not been updated in awhile, there are some inaccuracies but everything is ultimately where it is indicated.
6:15 Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
6:30 Starts begin for both courses
8:00 Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Beginner: 2K+ - easier navigation
Advanced: 4K+ - fewer controls than usual, with longer legs.
Safety Precautions: I encountered bears and flying frolf discs while setting this course. I'm sure there are other things to be worried about, but those are the two largest threats to safety that I can think of.
Parking/Start/Finish Locations: Park in the lot for the Spani Pool: 655 Hillcrest St, Coquitlam
Please join us afterwards for a picnic in Mundy Park! Meghan Rance is leaving Vancouver and this will be her last WET. It's such an important event that Thomas Nipen has flown in from Norway to attend! Make sure you pack some food, drinks, and a blanket, maybe a frisbee or other fun game (in case running a WET isn't enough exercise for you!).
Thanks to the club members who helped me out with the organization and course planning of this event. I hope I have done your good advice justice- I am not naming you publicly in case I have not!
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.
