June Club Night: Nose Hill Orienteering
June 20, 2019
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.
