Adventures with Maps

Don't stand on the sidelines - orienteering is a sport that the whole family can participate in and enjoy together. If you want to be more than a chauffeur, caterer or clothes washer, get outdoors with a map. Every event offers a different adventure: choose yours!

Where in the world are you orienteering?

Park and Street News - Champs Month

Saturday, 6 February 2016

The annual Park and Street Champs kick off this month, with the qualifying rounds starting on Tues Feb 16.  There are 7 qualifiers across all Summer Series, including Geelong and Macedon.  The Big Event is on Monday February 29, on the Gladeswood Spur map in Mulgrave.  We offer categories for Runners and Power Walkers, Male and Female, in a range of age groups.

If you wish to qualify to compete in the Final, you need to:

– be a member of an orienteering club

– complete at least 6 StreetO events this season

– compete on the appropriate course for your age group in one of the Qualifying events

– use a BLUE PRINT control card during the Qualifying event/s, to indicate your availability on Finals night

It's also time to start thinking about the Course Setter of the Year.  To nominate a course, simply provide a copy of the map, along with the course setter's name, to Margi or Debbie.  Eligible courses are from the beginning of March 2015 to the end of February 2016.  We'll pass these over to our adjudicator.  This prestigious award will be announced on our final Wednesday night, March 16, along with series prizes, Millennium Club milestones (8 new Legends this year!) and the Champs medallions.
