DROC Celebrates 40 Years on January 28 at Koolunga

DROC turns 40 this year, and everyone’s invited to the party!¬†¬†Dandenong Ranges Orienteering Club was formed in December 1978, and held its first event in January 1979. This will be a year of celebration for the club, kicking off with a Really Big Birthday Cake on Monday January 28, at our park-street orienteering event in Koolunga, Ferntree Gully.

We were delighted to see so many people come along, some suitably dressed in their best vintage outfits. Everyone enjoyed a great course set by club life member Carl Stemp, featuring no less than 3 control 20s (an extra 40 points – but you could only choose one). The cake was swiftly demolished and a great time was had by all!

Anyone recognise these two young lads??
