You can participate in EOOC orienteering events as an annual member or as a ‘member-for-a-day’.
At each event you attend that is held in the city (such as our Wednesday evening events) you fill out a registration form and then pay $10 for your day-only membership. Included in this $10 is one map. The cost for an additional map for a couple or family going out together is $5/map. Maps may be shared, but we recommend that everyone has their own to get the most fun and the best experience. The cost of a forest day-membership is usually higher than $10.
Season O-Pass: no longer available for 2019
EOOC annual members may, if they wish, buy in addition to their annual membership, an optional Wednesday evening season “O-Pass”.
– save money,
– save stress (you don’t have to search for cash each week)
– save time – O-pass holders can use an express line to collect their maps
– make it easier for the volunteer registrars
There are 2 options:
– single O-pass per household or
– multiple O-pass per household
Single O-Pass – $45* This pass entitles the member to ONE map per Wednesday event.
A household may buy a single O-Pass – $45*; you may share the map or any one club member in the household may use it. The pass is not transferable outside the club members in the household, and is non-refundable.
Multiple O-Pass – $80* This pass entitles the EOOC member household to maps at every Wednesday event for each of the members of the household who are EOOC members. The pass is not transferable outside the members in the household, and is non-refundable.
* discounted by $5 and $10 respectively if purchased on line by March 31, 2020.
When are the passes available to purchase?
Passes are available for annual members to purchase until May 22, 2020.
Where can I buy one?
You can buy your O-Pass with your membership, or after buying your membership.
Or you can send a cheque made out to “Edmonton Overlanders Orienteering Club” to:
EOOC, Box 69082, Edmonton, T6V 1G7
Or bring your money/cheque to any of the Wednesday events up to and including May 20, 2020.
You must be an annual member to buy an O-Pass.
Annual members do not have to buy an O-Pass; they may buy a map for $5 each time if they prefer.
O-Pass, how to
Find the O-Pass binder. Make sure the top sheet has the correct date at the top. Find your family name.
Tick the box next to the names of any EOOC member in your household who is going out on a course tonight.
Write in the last column how many maps you are taking.
The maximum number of maps your household may have with your O Pass is in brackets after the household name.
Ask the registrar for the map you would like, then go to the starter.
If you would like extra maps for EOOC members in your household, you may buy them from the registrar for $5 each. The registrar should write it on the registration sheet as ‘extra map sale’, instead of your name, as you have already been counted by ticking the box next to your name.
If you have brought non-member friends to the event, they must fill in, read and sign one of the blue waivers. They do not have to pay an entry fee if they are sharing your map.
Small print: you may not transfer any of your unused O Pass maps to anyone outside the EOOC members in your household.
