Map: Lynn Valley
We'll be checking out a section on the North end of the Lynn Valley map this week. There'll be some urban and park orienteering for the easier course and trail/forest controls for the expert group. For the expert course be aware that there are some new trails in the area so not all the trails are shown on the map!
Please register by Tuesday evening to ensure that we have enough maps printed for the event.
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
There'll be two courses on offer this week,
A 2.6km beginner course for those newer to orienteering which will explore some of the smaller local parks in the area, and
A 4.2km expert course for those who want to get some time on the trails around the Lynn park.
Always use good judgement and common sense. Carry a whistle at all times. Headlamps are essential to see and be seen. Take care when crossing roads and parking lots. Watch out for other runners, cyclists, and trail/sidewalk users.
The start and finish will be at the Kilmer Park on Dempsey Rd close to Lynn Valley Rd. There should be plenty of parking in the park itself or street parking on Dempsey Rd.
TBD - Lynn Valley has a few options close by.
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.
