Map: Cypress Falls
Another chance for Wednesday evening forest orienteering before it gets really dark! And a good warm-up for Sunday's WJR at Rice Lake. We will have usual point-to-point Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced courses in the beautiful Cypress Falls Park. Headlamp strongly recommended even if you start before it's dark -- that's changing fast these days!
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
Beginner -- for all who are new to orienteering. All controls at the trail, with a nice tour through parts of the park.
Intermediate -- most controls not too far away from trails
Advanced -- for experienced orienteerers, expect a bit of bushwacking if you aim for the shortest routes.
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.
Meet in the Cypress Falls Park parking lot. Parking spots might not be enough, find parking along Woodgreen Dr in that case.
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.
