And many thanks to the helpers at the event - Hayden Earle and Nicole Eby on the Registration, Adrian Low on the Start, Petra Strougal on the SI and Marie Burgess for beginers clinics and control setting and collection. Particular thanks to Scott Sheldrake for setting up the SI, dealing with the results and helping collect controls, and to Linda Hildebrandt for some great courses.
Latest Update: Due to a fair amount of rain in the last 24 hrs, the trails are muddy and quite wet in sections. Please wear footwear you can afford to get wet. We recommend bringing an extra pair or shoes to change into after you finish your course. No worries - the event is still on, for some more mud = more fun! :)
This B-Meet will take place at Beaver Lake Park. Beaver Lake Park is an excellent area with an intricate trail network and a mix of interesting terrain. Enough to challenge those new to orienteering and those seasoned orienteers looking for a good run. As always, beginners are welcome.
