The schedule is up! We are looking for local meet organizers for our Sunday events. We are hosting two bigger events this year: Sage Stomp in May and the BC Champs in early September. We will also be hosting local events on Sundays throughout the spring, summer and fall. Sage Stomp will contain a long, score-o/rogaine and a sprint. BC Champs will be a long on Saturday followed by a chasing start long on Sunday. We will also be having Club Championships in Salmon Arm consisting of a sprint and a long distance.
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: $5 for a one time try out of orienteering; $20 for Individuals for the season and $40 for a family for the season. Membership includes liability insurance through the Canadian Orienteering Federation insurance policy.
Our events are in the Kamloops area, with some in Salmon Arm, 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.
