Hi Eric!!

I'm going to go to the Tetons from around the 19th to the 24th to run on lots of good orienteering maps. Word of warning: they are all kartapullatin, meaning all the contours are perfect, cliffs are great, and vegetation is like 80% good, and there are no rocks / water features etc.. etc...

Here are some snippets of the terrain.

The good news is that there is lots and lots of terrain, and I have all the lidar data for it. So we can do every run on a different area and a new map!! I assume its all provincial park, and 4-7 people running in the forest should be fine.

I think that the trainings are going to be better than the last time I held the Calgary Training Camp, because we have many more maps this time around.

I was wondering if you're busy this week and would like to come along? I think its a pretty good deal because its like Swiss O Week but you only need to pay for camping and food. (I won't charge for any extra maps unles you really want to give me like 2$).

I totally get it if you already have plans and hopefully you could come sometime in the future, after I scope it out! I'd like to make it an annual trip for me...

Also if you know of anyone else that would be interested then let them know that they are welcome to come out. I'll post another invitation on AP but Im pretty sure that most people will ignore it.... or have plans already....

Cheers! Michael
