Organizer: Hilary Anderson (Event Director)
Thank you to Stan and Adam Woods (Trainers), Karen Lachance (Membership) and Michel Roberge (Timekeeper)!
Map: UBC is a complex maze of buildings and detailed landscaped areas perfectly suited for urban sprint orienteering.
Location: Meet at the new Alma Mater Society "Student Nest" next to the old Student Union Building. The marker on Google Maps shows this as a construction site but it is now finished and freshly mapped! There is cover if it is raining.
Parking: There is no free parking anywhere in the neighborhood but there are plenty of parking meters on adjacent streets and a large parkade just north of the meeting location. Transit will deliver you very close to the meeting location.
Safety Precautions: A flashlight or headlamp will be essential and carrying an emergency whistle is mandatory. If you do not have your own whistle, you can buy one for $1 at the event.
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.
Post-Event Dining: TBA
