The MEFTY Award

Each year a perpetual trophy (creatively carved from Tasmanian huon pine by Vic Sedunary) is presented to the orienteer who completes the most Park Street events in a StreetO year (start of Summer fixture to the end of Spring fixture). Eligible events are those listed in the official Park Street Orienteering fixture except Sunday events.

This award is titled The MEFTY Award (Most Events For The Year). Previous winners are honored below.

The winner of the 2022 MEFTY is once again Steven O’Connell; this is Steven’s fourth MEFTY win, equalling Stuart McWilliam.  This year, Steven attended 143 events.  Other top scorers were Noel McVey (125 events), Peter Yeates (123 events), Lauris Stirling (106 events), Mark Besley (102 events) and Robert Hudson (98 events). Congratulations!  Our most recent season got off to a late start in November 2021, but events then ran continuously until the end of September 2022.
