BEARS, BEES AND...
A great time was had by all at this weekends Orienteering event at Nymph Falls Park! Close to 50 orienteers, including 20 summer cadets, completed the event which included 3 courses for different abilities.
It was the hottest day of the year so far, but luckily the park offered plenty of shade and the Puntledge river was open for a post course soak:). Finishers enjoyed refreshing watermelon and cookies while they cooled off in the shade and the river after sweating it out on the course.
There were a few critter encounters on the course : Mr. Bear decided to eat his fish right beside a control point ... and those darn Nymph falls wasps/bees were out to get some unlucky orienteers! Other than that, the event went off without a hitch and I was happy to be a part of it!
Draw prizes were donated by Extreme Runners and ELM and volunteers came from far and wide! A big thank you to all those who came out to support this event- non-profit, grass-roots, run by orienteers for orienteers:)
Some of my fav. pics are below. All the photos from the day can be found via the ELM Photo Gallery .
Orienteers are ready to start! There is Bryan Tasaka, MOMAR bossman, on the right. Ready to try his luck at orienteering!
