Final SS event for 2017

2017ss Francis award

The Pierre Brassard Memorial Award is awarded to an Orienteering Ottawa member who exhibits the true spirit of orienteering.  Francis came forward a few years ago and offered to run a running program. The programme has grown and become an institution within our club.     Everyone is welcomed in, youngsters, high performance athletes, old folks trying to pretend they can still run.  Today, thanks to Francis Kawam, Orienteering Ottawa has the best training programme of all clubs in the country.    Francis Kawam has been awarded the Pierre Brassard Memorial Award for the tone he sets and the spirit he exemplifies with his coaching and support of all of us.
