Park Pass

** Update 31 March 2009 ** The Manitoba Government has waived provincial park entrance fees for 2009 and 2010 so park passes are no longer required.
Registrants who already paid for park passes will receive refunds.

A provincial park pass is required on all vehicles entering a Manitoba Provincial Park. This means any vehicles going to the Relay event or any of the COC events require a pass. Passes are available for the entire year ($28.00) or 3 consecutive days ($7.00). A 3-day pass will cover you for the relay and COC events. The 3-day passes can be purchased with your orienteering registration.

SI Cards

All competitors must have an SI card.  If you have your own SI card, please enter it's number carefully during registration.  (At the start line, the number on your card must match the number in our records.)

Competitors who do not have an SI card can rent one at $2 per event.  Competitors who don't return their rental SI cards will be charged a $40 replacement fee.

Payment Methods

We are using Zone4 to process the registrations for the Sandhills Festival. They accept Visa, MasterCard, and Diners Club for online payments. If you want to pay by cheque or money order, you may do so by completing the registration and selecting the Cash/Cheque payment option.

Make cheques payable in Canadian dollars to "Manitoba Orienteering Association" and mail to:

COC Registrar
c/o Pat Graupner
P.O. Box 552
St. Malo, MB R0A 1T0

Zone4 charges a per-person fee for all registrations, and if paying by credit card, a 3% processing fee. These fees are paid by the organizing clubs.

You will receive an e-mail receipt for your registration that shows the items that make up the total payment.  If you want to see the complete details of your registration, then click on the "Confirmation List" link in your e-mail receipt.


All competitors must sign a waiver when they pick up their registration package.

Cancellations and Changes

Registrations may be cancelled up to the 14th of August. A full refund less $25 and costs will be made. If your order includes any T-shirts and is cancelled after 24th July, then the T-shirts will only be refunded if they can be sold at the events. Please send an email to with any cancellation requests.

We will do our best to handle changes to registrations. Please send an email to with any changes required.
