Orienteering with ELM this Saturday!

We are offering our popular recreational Orienteering course in the Comox Valley this weekend.
The first session of 2010 takes place this Saturday, May 15th with an introductory course from 10-12 noon and an intermediate course from 12:30-2:30pm.

More and more people are heading to the hills and looking for an escape off the beaten path. Recreating in the bush and exploring new trails requires a solid but basic base of orienteering and map reading skills. ELM's orienteering clinics will offer important skills for both novice and intermediate navigators.

Orienteering 101: is an introductory course designed for individuals who want to learn the basics of orienteering and discover how to use a map and compass correctly. No previous experience is required for this great course that mixes theory with fun orienteering exercises.

Orienteering 201: is the next level in this series and is designed for individuals involved in sport orienteering or adventure racing. Participants learn advanced orienteering techniques such as pacing and fast paced navigation then head to the hills for a 5-10km trekking event to practice their skills.

Space is limited & the registration deadline is May 12th. FMI or to register go to
Hope you can come out and play!
