Map: King Edward West
Please join us in our first WET this Wednesday September 2nd at King Ed West map (aka Camosun). We will be offering two courses, a shorter easy one, with no controls off trail and suitable for beginners, and a longer one, with some controls out there in the woods. We hope you guys enjoy it!
6:15 pm - Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
6:30 pm - Starts begin for both courses
8:00 pm - Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Begginers- Short, Easy. No off-trail controls
Advanced- Long. Off-trail controls.
Please be advised that due to the weather these past days some branches (even full trees!) may have fallen on the trails. Also, expect it to be wet and muddy. It is advisable to protect your legs against the bushes. Also, if you are planning a late start, bringing a headlamp might be useful as some sections of the course will get dark pretty soon.
Start and finish will be in the parking lot at Queen Elizabeth Elementary School. Apart from the parking lot, there is plenty of street parking available nearby. Also, bus routes 33 and 25 have a stop right 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.
