Directions to meet site:
Central Park:
        Meet in the south parking lot (off Imperial Road). To get there, go
east along 49th, cross Boundary Road. 49th then turns into Imperial Road.
Take the first left (north) after Boundary Road into the parking lot in
Central Park.

Champlain Heights.
        From Central park, go back onto Imperial Road west bound. Go past
Boundary Road, and turn left (south) onto Arlington Street. The finish area
is along the left hand side after 300 m. Parking should be available along
the street.



NOTE: Instead of the planned Long Distance Orienteering Event in North Vancouver, GVOC is moving the event to Central Park and Champlain Heights. The North Vancouver event will take place next April.

GVOC invites you to the 2004 GVOC Club Championships help at Central Park and in Champlain Heights on Sunday December 5, 2004. The event is set in two stages: The prologue at Central Park, followed by a chase start in Champlain Heights. The results of the prologue will base the start order in the chase: The fastest orienteer in the prologue will be the first to start in the chase - first across the finish line is the winner! Beginners have the opportunity to practise their orienteering skills at a separate course at the Champlain Heights event.

Stay tuned for further details on where to meet for the event.
