Sept 20, 2023

Our annual Night-O will finish up the 2023 season on Friday, Spet 20. We run the Night-O on Fridays so that it is not a school/work night for most.

Starts will begin around 8pm, but to get the full experience of night orienteering, you should wait until it is dark!

  • Bring clothing layers, headlamp/flashlights (instead of the normal flags, the controls are highly reflective markers).
  • To avoid delays, YOA memberships should be completed online ahead of the meet.

Location is at the Wolf Creek Campround (10 minutes south of Whitehorse on the Alaska Highway).

A volunteer is needed to organize hot chocolate.

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
