Are you coming to the COCs in Whistler? If so please do join us at any or all of the Orienteering Canada conference sessions.... Sunday eve... all about the process to become an orienteering coach and a general discussion around junior development in Canadian orienteering. The session Monday evening is geared to those who want to discuss Canadian high performance orienteering. And Monday evening is the Pecha Kucha session.... orienteering style.... presentations can't be longer than 20 slides and you can't speak for more than 20 seconds/slide. The topic needs to be orienteering related somehow. We did this in Edmonton a few years ago and it was a fun evening! Come join us! Presenters and spectators welcome... http://coc2014.weebly.com/orienteering-canada-agm--conference.html

The HPP Silent Auction at the COCs is less than a week away! There are some great items including some Helly Hansen clothing, hand knitted items, and an event or event series logo (designed by Jeff Teutsch in consultation with the buyer). If you have any items to bring, remember to pack them as you head out west or give them to a club member who is going!

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.
