Good News! Our meet director, James Richardson, with the help of Cherie Revells, has been able to obtain permission to hold Sunday's event at Wesley Clover Parks. They will be working quickly to design and check courses for us . We will post more information about these courses later in the week. Registration will open Friday morning and close Saturday at 8pm. We will be increasing our capacity so, hopefully, we don't have to turn folks away but no promises. Our events have been very popular.
Wesley Clover Parks is on Corkstown Road just north of the Queensway between Moodie and Eagleson. The registration will likely be at the entrance to the Kanata Nordic Ski Club - about 200 m west of the railway track but that may depend upon the courses designed so be sure to check back later.
Thank you all for working with us to keep our events safe and enjoyable. Your cooperation and understanding has enabled and encouraged us to continue to do our best to keep these events running while being safe for all. And a big thank you to James and Cherie for helping on such short notice.
Orienteering Ottawa is hosting a COVID-modified 2020 Fall Series. The events are open to Orienteering Ottawa members only, but if you are not yet a member it only costs $20 to become one! See our membership page to sign up. (french membership page)
