Organizer: Jackie Bonn (Event Director)


Celebrate Dad’s day with a jaunt around the Bunker Bench map in Kamloops. The map is named after the World War 2 bunkers that were built to store large quantities of ammunition for the Canadian coastal defence forces. Kamloops was considered a safe spot but within easy reach of the coast by rail. The map is at the north eastern edge of Kenna Cartwright Park and is open sagebrush with some complex rock features.

There will be three classic orienteering courses. Short, Medium and Long.


Registration opens at 11am with first starts at 11.30. The courses close at 2pm. Please be back at the registration site by then.


From the west driving on Highway 1/5 take the 367 exit and turn north on Hillside Way, past Aberdeen Mall and then turn right on to Hillside Drive driving down the hill.
