Bulletin #1


O-Fest 2015

We hope you enjoyed the NAOC2014 festival.  We would like to invite you back to the Ottawa area next September for O-Fest 2015.  The atmosphere will be a little smaller and the event will be a little more personal but we promise you just as much fun and that the orienteering will be just as good.  

We expect to have a full website online in early 2015.  In the mean time here are the details you need to know to put the event on  your calendar.


O-Fest 2015 will take place the weekend of  September 26th - 27th, 2015.


We are tentatively planning to use the longtime Orienteering Ottawa favourite Cité des Jeunes map in Gatineau Park.  The map would be entirely remapped use LiDAR base material for an extra accurate map and amazing experience (see sample below). We are awaiting confirmation of availability from a mapper for this work. If this falls through we have several back-up areas we could use. 


We will be returning to the successful 2 day chasing start format that we tried in 2015 with the following schedule:

Saturday: Ultra technical middle distance
Prologue: WRE status pending
Saturday afternoon / evening: Bonus Event!
In case orienteering in stunning terrain on world class maps twice in one weekend isn't enough. Format to be announced.
Sunday: Classic long distance orienteering
Chasing start: the start list for this race is based on the results of Saturday's middle distance prologue with the Saturday's winners starting first - can you catch the prologue leaders?
