OV – The First 50 Years – The 2010s

Victorian Sprint Champs, Bendigo, 2016

This year is the 50th anniversary of the VOA (now OV). Over the last few weeks, Belinda Dale (YVOC) has been providing a summary of the history of orienteering in Victoria, starting with the first event, in 1969 and then by the decade.

The history can be read on a progressive basis both in the weekly newsletter and here on the OV website.

The final installment is covered this week – the 2010s, where digitisation changed the way events were run, and sprint orienteering took off.

  • Amazing Week of Summer Orienteering

    It doesn't get any better than this - a perfect summer evening, park-street orienteering in the bush, and a shared experience with family and friends. That was the scene at Westerfolds this week. It came on top of two fantastic events featuring the Tatterson Tree Maze on Monday, and the equally maze-like Albert Park on Tuesday. Top off an incredible week at Eltham Lower on Thursday, then head to Queenscliff on Saturday for the Surf Coast Series finale!
