Hi everyone

As a result of last Monday’s Eureka June meeting, I have taken responsibility to communicate several interesting initiatives for the club. If you think this works, I’ll do it each month as part of our strategy to promote orienteering in our region. Dot points should highlight decisions from the June meeting – with action to follow.

  • Purchase of GPS for club mapping projects – Ken D/Rod G to source/purchase suitable unit (~$900).
  • Proposed permanent course at Cornish Hill (Daylesford) – Rob Fell/Ken D to survey time scale for project; EU draft ‘letter of support’ of the concept of “posts along tracks” to introduce visitors to navigation using map.
