Organizer: Abbigail May (Event Director)
Map: Little Mountain
This week's event will be a little bit different from the normal, and a little different than last week's as well. Here is how it works: There will be a mass start and all of the controls will be in groups. Everybody will be handicapped based off your running speed and orienteering experience. Depending on your handicap, you will have to get between 2 and 4 controls in each box of controls. Whoever gets back first wins. This is a format that is often used in Ontario. We will explain it (with more details) at the race site.
- 5:30 - Registration Opens

- 7:00 - Courses Close (All participants must report to the finish line even if they have not yet finished their course)
SUNDAY SALMON ARM EVENT:
There is an orienteering event this Sunday in Salmon Arm. There will be a sprint in the morning, followed by a long distance event in the afternoon. Full information and online sign up available here.
Little Mountain has a large number of trails and mostly fairly thick forest. It is mostly one large hill (Little Mountain) but also has some smaller contour detail and a small pond.
