From The Sass Peepre Junior Development Committee:

Hi all junior orienteers,

The Sass Peepre Junior Development Committee is pleased to offer SPOTT (Sass Peepre Orienteering Training for Teens) again this winter, a chance to armchair orienteer in the off-season with junior orienteers from across Canada!

Adam Woods will be our facilitator again this year. The 10 session program will run Thursdays for one hour every two weeks from February 4th to the end of June. Sign up now though Zone 4. More details are in this document.

Bears And YOA Meets

NOTE: There may be bears in any of the map areas where YOA meets are held. YOU must be “bear aware”. To reduce risk, use precautions set out in the booklet How you can stay safe in bear country.

Dogs At YOA Meets

A dog biting incident has prompted the executive to advise orienteers bringing dogs to events to:
  • Leash your dog while in the parking/assembly/start areas;
  • If dogs accompany you on your course, they must be under your immediate control at all times;
  • If there are more incidents or complaints, we may need to take a more stringent approach.
Thank you
