Description:First event on new Hemlock map!

If you have bad memories of Hemlock now is the time to give it a second chance. This little pocket of forest tucked away in suburban Halifax is a real gem - world class orienteering terrain. With the new map it will be like a completely new area. The shorter courses will stick to the nicest terrain. For the more intrepid the Long Advanced there will be some tougher terrain to truly test your orienteering skills. Rob Plowright, the Australian mapper who has just completed this major update will be the course planner and event director for this event!

Pre-register to Tony by Friday night.
