Orienteering Canada banquet and silent auction!

Sadly, the Canadian Orienteering Championships can't take place again this year. Orienteering Canada really hopes to see every one in person again in 2022!

Meanwhile they hope to meet many of you virtually this year by joining their virtual COCs Banquet & and Silent Auction. Get your banquet meal ready and join them on Zoom to eat together and catch up. They are doing everything they can to replicate a COCs Banquet (except the long line-up for the buffet table!) including a Silent Auction.

Funds raised through the silent auction support Team Canada athletes. YOA member Pia Blake as well as this summer's coach Emma Waddington are members of Team Canada - we're sure that they'll appreciate your support!

  • The Banquet takes place on Sunday August 29 at 5pm Yukon Time.
  • The Silent Auction is open now and runs until Sunday August 29 right after the Banquet.

Staying Safe While Orienteering

Every orienteering participant should read the document Staying Safe While Orienteering (PDF).

Bears And YOA Meets

NOTE: There may be bears in any of the map areas where YOA meets are held. YOU must be “bear aware”. To reduce risk, use precautions set out in the booklet How you can STAY SAFE in bear country.

Dogs At YOA Meets

A dog biting incident has prompted the executive to advise orienteers bringing dogs to events to:

  • Leash your dog while in the parking/assembly/start areas;
  • If dogs accompany you on your course, they must be under your immediate control at all times;
  • If there are more incidents or complaints, we may need to take a more stringent approach.
Thank you
