Stay tuned for more details


Everyone is invited to the traditional Skinkaloppet orienteering event. What is a Skinkaloppet? Make a prediction on how long you will take to run the orienteering race, remove all watches, cell phones and other timing devices, and go orienteering (often on a map of questionable accuracy) and return to the start/finish. The person with their running time closest to their predicted time wins the ham! Then stay for the potluck dinner Christmas Party complete with fun games. Let's see if Ian can repeat his performance with his art work. Same location as last year, the Woods home at 836 Runnymede Ave Coquitlam. This is one event you will NOT want to miss!

When you sign up, please register for which orienteering course you want to do AND also register for what you will be bringing to the Potluck: appetizer, salad, main course, or dessert. Feel free to write out what you will be bringing.
