The remarkable John Charlow has been at the helm of this Club for almost fifty years. In that time, the sport of Orienteering in the Montreal area has grown steadily in both membership and events. This year we have more keen and enthusiastic members than ever before, and so John is anxious now to pass on the tasks of running the club to others.
A restructuring of the Club is planned, and for that purpose we invite all members to a General Meeting on Sunday, December 11, at 1 p.m. The meeting will take place at 5165 Queen Mary Rd. (Snowdon metro), Montreal, in conference room #512.
On the agenda is the election of a Board of Directors, the search for name of the club (we want to become bilingual), and also an introduction and signing up for our working groups. Other items include an update on plans to organize another Canada Cup event in 2017. It will be the Eastern Canadian Championship and will be held in July, the week prior to the Canadian Championships that will be organized by Orienteering Ottawa, a combined effort to draw more enthusiasts from afar.
We are very excited to start a new chapter in the history of orienteering in the Greater Montreal area, and we hope that you will be a part of it. We look forward to seeing you on December 11th!
