intermediate course for the first time, sticking it out when it was

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.
