How come a Canadian orienteer from the Yukon does his first Ski-O race in.... Australia ?

Well done Caelen.

I spoke to Caelen and he told me he was going to do it alphabetically. He's trying to decide on Bulgaria or Belarus for his next event.

See - he is skipping Austria - I detect a pattern here.
Pot-hunting around the world to scoop the big chocolate.

Ski-O races in Canada, like bike-O, night-O, trail-O and even score-O are so hard to find that sometimes one has to go halfway around and under the world to find a race.

Right, so you go to the ski-O hotbeds, like Australia, and don't bother with the places that have barely any snow, like Austria. I'd suggest Brazil or Belize second.

Ski-O races in Canada...are so hard to find

Australia doesn't exactly contain a mecca of ski-O. We have one event per year.

@gordhun - if you ever want score events, come to Sydney the locals are obsessed with the damn things.

Thanks for the suggestions from down under.
My point is that in Canada, like a lot of orienteering jurisdictions, we seem obsessed with the missionary position of orienteering events, usually referred to as point-to-point orienteering, done in daylight on a weekend day.
In orienteering, as elsewhere in life, variety can bring a little spice to the activity.

So you're suggesting a veritable Canadian karma-sutra of orienteering events? Or, perhaps, let's just turn the lights down and spice this up a bit eh?

I though they did it for 24hrs?

Night Orienteering is the second most fun you can have in the dark.

I love it both in the full light and in the dark!
