Let Summer Begin!

To celebrate the return of Summer, come out and play in the woods!

Rain or shine! Come on out!

This is a reprise of the May 14th Jamboree-O-the-Trail event. The Beginner and Novice courses will be the same, while the loops will be adjusted slightly to give a bit of a new challenge for the more advanced orienteerers.

All controls are set in a very compressed event area. No control is more than 750m (as the crow flies) from the start/finish - your milage will vary! The terrain is mostly open forest with rocky ground.


Pre-registration is requested to help the organizers prepare sufficient material. Pre-register by June 21st and benefit from a reduction in fees. Register online or by email with the organizer : Race fees will be collected on-site.

Please provide:

  • Name
  • Club/Group (if a member)
  • Course
  • SportIdent serial number (if available)


  • Course 1 (1-2km): Beginner. A good introductory course for beginners. Controls are located along trails.
  • Course 2 (2-3km): Novice. The controls are located near, but mostly off the trails. Use the trails to make your way around the course.
  • Intermediate to Advanced: Once course with three loops (a bit under 2km per loop). The controls are located off the trails. Good map reading skills are an asset.
    • One Loop: Easiest loop, with major catching features.
    • Two Loops: Pick any two of three loops
    • Three Loops: The whole enchilada!

First start Noon or as soon as registration is complete.
