While the course is not difficult for a day event the darkness adds another whole dimention.

The Bluenose Classic will be held on October 19th. in Victoria Park in Truro. This is our Provincial championship and will have 5 levels for novice and experienced folks and will be an "A" style meet. This means you will not get your map until you start and it is a point to point.

The Youth Hostel has been booked for fellow orienteering folks to stay over on Saturday night, if you are interested please email Michael Price to reserve a bed.

The Tri-O-Cup event was started in 2007. We award points to participants who take part in all three events and the person with the most points wins the Cup.
