Vic Autumn Bush Series Guidelines 2019

Preparations are now underway for the 2019 Vic Autumn Series.  This will be a series of six high quality bush events running from late February until early June.

After reviewing the 2018 Autumn Series and Spring Series, the OV calendar planning meeting in October agreed on some changes for the 2019 Vic Autumn Series in order to make it less effort for organisers and more attractive to competitors.  The overall aim is to refresh the series so that orienteers are keen to attend and clubs are happy to organise events.

Agreed changes include:

  • Offering five courses instead of nine
  • Making it optional to have an independent event advisor
  • Standardising entry fees across the series

A short discussion paper containing draft course planning guidelines has now been prepared to assist the course planners for each event to design five courses that will be appealing to competitors and as consistent as possible through the series.  The paper also includes a number of ideas to enhance arena vibe and to increase the excitement and attractiveness of the series.  Feedback is needed before decisions are made on any of these ideas.

OV members are encouraged to download the paper available HERE and provide feedback and further suggestions to Ted van Geldermalsen or Margi Freemantle in person or by email to [email protected].
