Map: Confederation Park
This weeks training is at Conferation Park! Old school point to point courses in both short and not as short formats. Short will be beginner friendly, but the Confederation Park area consists mainly of open park, so the navigation should be relatively straightforward. The longer course is set with clustered controls, every so often, rewarding reading ahead on the map to get an idea of where you should be going once you've reached the next control...or two.
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
Short and not so short. As names imply, short is slightly shorter and a little more beginner friendly, whereas not so short is slightly longer, using some of the forested areas around the park a little more.
Take extra care when crossing roads. Please carry a GVOC whistle. We sell them at every event for $1 - what a bargain!
Parking available in the lots at Dundas and Beta, and start/finish will be at the shelter just west of there, marked on the map.
