A reminder of the Dec 15 deadline to submit your thoughts on this issue... The IOF Foot Orienteering Commission has released an open discussion paper on the question of orienteering and prior information in an era of modern technology. This has become an area of particular interest because of the growth of sprint events, which present particular challenges in making the competition fair for all participants, particularly now that it has become standard practice amongst at least some teams to do extensive preparation for sprint events (such as WOC in Venice) using publicly available mapping/visualisation tools. The IOF Foot Orienteering Commission (FOC) is interested in feedback from all parts of the orienteering community, on the ideas presented in the paper (available at the link below), and any additional ideas which readers may have on these issues. http://orienteering.org/discussion-paper-on-prior-information-orienteering/

Welcome!

This spring we again will again be holding the Sage Stomp with a standard sprint (TRU) and Edith Hill for the middle and long. In June, we are holding Rage the Sage a 24 hour rogaine. In August, we are hosting the Western Canadian Championships. We are also hoping to offer some beginner level coaching/junior program this spring.

How to get started

The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the events. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can go around all or part of a course, on your own or with someone else. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun.

All you need is some older clothing and footwear, in case the trails are a bit muddy (we mostly stick to open parks and roads but sometimes there are bits of forest trails included) Membership is payable at the first event you attend each year and is good for the entire calendar year. You must be a member in order to participate in a Sage "C" event. Fees are: $10 for rec member to try out orienteering; $20 for Individuals; $40 for family. Membership includes liability insurance through the Canadian Orienteering Federation insurance policy.

Our events are in the Kamloops area and usually have a couple of different course levels. There is a fee of $5 per adult per event. We also use "electronic timing" so you can see how well you did.

If you do decide to come to an event, please sign up on our website in advance - that way we know to print a map for you.
