reorientation

Today I tested out my heels in an orienteering race (rasing money for the Easter Seals). There were loops around three courses set up near the UBC endowment lands (PDF map). It was a total of about 6.2 km, partially urban, partially wooded. My team got fourth place. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

My last time orienteering was at the age of 12 with my uncle Merri in England. I have excellent memories of the event and that is substantially what drove me to get out to this thing today. I expect the Greater Vancouver Orienteering Club will be seeing more of me.

    I am HIGHLY interested in joining a future orienteering team you may put together. I have never done it, but have heard great things and always wanted to try!
