This year there will be 5 ski-orienteering events held in beautiful British-Columbia, 4 of them will count towards the Interior BC ski-orienteering series where you will race for points and will also feature the return of the Canadian ski-orienteering championships. Last year at a meeting in California, it was decided that the US and Canada would alternate for the ski-orienteering national championship, giving the athletes the chance to compete in at least one major event every year. This year, it is Canada's turn to put it on and it will be held in BC.
It will all start with a warm-up event at Black Jack ski club, situated in Rossland BC on Sunday February 10th.
The Interior BC ski-orienteering series will then kick off with a weekend of events on February 23/24 at Sun Peaks resort (Kamloops vicinity) and Larch Hills ski club (Salmon Arm). The circus will move on the following weekend, March 1/2 to Sovereign Lake (Vernon) and Stake Lake (Kamloops vicinity) where the Canadian Championship will be held.
5 ski-orienteering events, all conveniently situated in BC - don't miss out! And if you wish to make 2008 a ski-orienteering year, why don't you join me and a few others and link it up with the Sierra Avalanche Orienteering Festival (http://baoc.org/wiki/Schedule/2008/SkiO) from January 30-February 3 in Truckee California. If you're not gliding, you're not doing it right. If you're not making mistakes, you're not moving fast enough!
