Coming Events

The next orieteering event is an in-person Sprint event on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 on the Long Lake SE map. This is our first forest event of the season, as the snow is now largely gone! Registration opens at 6:00pm approx. 400 m up Grey Mountain Road. Drive through yellow gate and 300 m to start area. Follow signs from Lewes Boulevard, Riverdale. Starts between 6:30pm and 7:30pm, with course closure at 8:30pm.

Four courses will be offered:

  • Novice 2.0 km 8 controls
  • Intermediate 2.5 km 8 controls
  • Advanced 3.5 km 9 controls
  • Long Advanced 4.6 km 10 controls

Map scale will be 1:10000 for long advanced; 1:7500 for novice, intermediate and advanced. Contour Interval 5m The courses will be designed using long event discipline features i.e., focusing on route choice. The Long Lake SE map area is best known for kame and kettle topography i.e., many depressions of glacial origin. The event area is crisscrossed with vehicle tracks and trails. Snow has just thawed; however, some trails may be muddy. The forest is mixed spruce, pine, and aspen. The forest is mostly open (white on the map). Where there is undergrowth, it is marked as “slow run” (light green on the map). Steep south facing slopes are open, some with sandy ground. The area was first mapped in 1985 and has been revised many times since, most recently last year.

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
