White Rock’s Mileena Suarez, 16, found her way.
The 907 Black Knights Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron corporal had a successful run at a cadet orienteering zone competition last weekend at Campbell Valley Park.
Suarez was given a basic map of the area on Oct. 13, and she had to collect stamps from 15 check points on a seven-kilometre journey.
“I feel really glad that I finished, but it was a lot longer than I had expected,” Suarez said in a news release. “I really enjoyed it, overall, it has been a great day.”
The trick to orienteering, she said, is paying attention, be cautious, and “make sure that you’re choosing the right path. It’s OK to take a minute to find out where you’re going, it’ll save you in the long run.”
