Thanks for a great year everyone! We are looking forward to having more local events in 2016 in both Salmon Arm and Kamloops as well as the thirty-first Sage Stomp. There is also the possibility of a Ski-O at Larch Hills during the winter.
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 and Salmon Arm areas, 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.
