Chelsea Nordic has invited us to join their orienteering activity for youth on Saturday, October 22. This is an opportunity for families in the area to participate in an activity for youth, as most of our youth activities have been in the west end of Ottawa. This is open to all youth members but as guests, there is a limit on attendance. 
 
There is no cost to attend but members must sign a waiver. Youth should have an adult shadow unless they are experienced as the course will be challenging.  Experienced youth can go out in teams of 2-3. There must be at least 1 whistle per team. Compasses are not required but would be helpful in the woods. Control cards are supplied. There is no SI.
 
It is a Score-O format with 24 controls, most of which are in the woods (Intermediate level).
 
Please be at Chelsea Elementary School by 9:00 for a 9:15 start.
 
Those wishing to participate should email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to confirm so we have a good count. Many club members would have already received an email about this already, but please email me again at the outreach address if you plan to attend.
 
If you have any questions, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call/text (613) 732-0588.
