Last July, our Montreal members hosted a group of juniors from Kootenay Orienteering Club, BC. We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews of their experiences.
This is what David Howe (16) had to say:
The trip to Montreal and Perth was amazing, it had everything I could want in a trip. My favourite things were the Sass Peepre camp and the relay race on the final day at Canadians. I really enjoyed site seeing in Montreal, seeing the Parliament buildings in Ottawa, hanging out in my hammock on a tree branch over the lake at the cottage at Upper Beverley Lake and catching fish there too.
For the future I would like to train on harder maps with less trails and descriptions just to further prepare myself for when I move up a category. The girls had a tough time with their map 8-9 move up.
Next year I have to move up.I also really enjoyed the different terrain as it added more of a challenge, but I don’t like all the poisonous plants they have or the extra swampy conditions. Overall this has been the trip of a lifetime. I cannot thank Laura, Scott and Daniel enough, along with Anna Fichman and her family and of course the KO club with which this trip would absolutely not have been possible.
