The Middle and Long events of Ottawa O-Fest 2018 and the Ontario Orienteering Championships will be held at Ski Vorlage, in Wakefield Quebec. The Middle courses will be mostly on the Vorlage property; the Long courses will be both in Gatineau Park and in Vorlage. The portion of Gatineau Park being used is our Riviere Lapeche (or P17) map, newly updated for 2018. The Vorlage map was new last year and has only been used for a Rogaine event.
We will once again offer the youngsters amongst us an opportunity to spend some time in the KidZone where they will receive a special O-Fest KidZone Passport and where they can try out maze-orienteering, a string-O course, some outdoor lawn games and some orienteering puzzles! While this is not a babysittting service, it is a great place to keep future orienteers entertained!
There will be food for sale at the Vorlage Arena for the Middle and Long events. Walking Tacos will be there to offer us a range of yummy looking foods. Cash only, so make sure to bring some lunch money. He will be at Vorlage approximately Saturday 12:30 - 4:30 and Sunday 11:30 - 3:30.
On Monday, at Parc Moussette, there will be no food for sale on site. However, there are plenty of food options, including fast food vendors, stores and restaurants, within a short walk of the race arena.
There are a number of accommodation options in the Wakefield area. We have listed a few here to help you out.
