June Club Night: Nose Hill Orienteering
This month club night will be on Thursday June 20.The Foothills Wanderers Orienteering Club have once again very kindly agreed to set us up with a course, this time in northern Nose Hill Park. We will be meeting at the north parking lot (Shaganappi Trail NW & Edgemont Blvd NW) at the shelter on the south side of the lot at 7 pm. The course will be accessible for beginners, so don’t hesitate to come try out a fun new activity that combines running with navigation skills! Coaching and instruction will be available as well. There will be two course options:
shorter and easier 2.9k with 35m of climb. Mostly on trails or very close to trails. Scale 1:5,000. Contours 2.5m
longer and somewhat harder. 5.1k with 132m of climb. Lots of trails but opportunity to take short-cuts not on trails! Scale 1:7,500. Contours 2.5m
For the longer course, long pants are recommended as well as a compass (some will be available to lend)
Afterwards we’ll head to Kilkenny Irish Pub (3630 Brentwood Rd NW) for the usual refreshments.
