Here's a Christmas gift idea: Jim and Sue Waddington's book: "In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven". Jim and Sue are long time orienteers who live in Hamilton and this book is all about their hobby of tracking down the source locations of many of the paintings of the Group of Seven artists. Their orienteering background came in very handy as they scoured topo maps for clues. Below is a recent review. Check your local bookseller or on-line booksellers to buy a copy. http://www.ngcmagazine.ca/recommendations/parallel-tales-in-the-footsteps-of-the-group-of-seven

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.
