25/05/2005 Camping
We recently visited the Stampede Campground in the centre of Williams Lake, and found it to be inexpensive, convenient and with clean washrooms and showers. Power and water outlets are also available. We have been asked where most orienteers might be camping, and we suggest this spot. Rates are from $12 to 14/night, and if you mention orienteering groups will get a discount. Call Vera at 250 398-6718. From the South on Highway 97 at the junction of Highway 20 in Williams Lake take a left onto 20, right onto Mackenzie Avenue after about 200m, then first right and right again into the Campground.

Class changes
COF has decided not to allow us to use 5 year age classes for orienteers eligible for the Canadian Orienteering Championships. This means that if Canadians want to run for the medals, they have to compete in M/W35, M/W45, M/W55 and M/W65. We will move competitors registered in M/W40, M/W50, M/W 60 and M/W70 and above down into the appropriate class. However, we should note that any Canadian competitor can opt out and stay in the class he or she registered, competing for Gold Rush Trail medals only. The COF class structure also differs for the IOF classes by having an M/W17-19 and M/W20, the latter being the elite class. As a result competitors entered in M/W19-20 will have to be moved up or down, depending on their age. We will contact everyone with notification of the changes by e-mail. Our apologies for having to make these changes.
