Australian Orienteering Championships Update

From our friends in Tasmania …

Aus Champs in Tasmania Going Ahead

In these uncertain times, the plan is to press on and keep our fingers and toes crossed. Covid creates unknowns but there is hope and if the odds are in our favour, the Aus Champs week will be an awesome much needed dose of outdoor fun with a great bunch of people. You have until 22 August to enter, and late entries will be considered. There is also a generous refund policy. For the full low down visit the AOC2021 website

 To keep you in the loop, here is a message from Warwick Moore, AOC2021 Director – as sent to the over 530 people who have already entered:

The carnival in Tasmania will go ahead even if orienteers from some Australian states are unable to attend due to Covid lockdown. Orienteering Australia has given an assurance that the competition will still have Championship status.

For your information, Tasmania remains free of COVID.  There has not been a confirmed case of local transmission for over 12 months.  Direct flights into Tasmania continue to be available from all states and New Zealand.

We do remain subject to any decision by the Tasmanian Government to lock Tasmania’s borders. Recent decisions suggest that the government is now only closing the border to particular hotspots in mainland states.  However, in these times we appreciate that everything can change quickly. Nevertheless, the organisers are working flat out on the assumption that we will be able to conduct the championships.

For information on covid and Tasmania here is the Tasmanian Government covid website. This includes information on coming to Tasmania and transit through high risk areas. We recommend you follow this website to keep up to date with the situation.
