Hi all,

Could you please pass the following message onto your club members:

As you are likely aware, in May we will be holding 3 regional secondary schools orienteering championships:

  • Fri 17 May – Southern Metro – Dandenong Police Paddocks
  • Wed 22 May – Western Metro – Truganina Park
  • Fri 24 May – Eastern Metro – Westerfolds Park

Roughly 100 students will be competing at each of these events. We have also had an increase in the number of schools participating, with 24 schools entered this year.

Successful competitors at these events will be invited to compete in the ‘state finals’:

  • Fri 14 June – State Championship – Kurrajong Plantation (You Yangs)

In the time between the qualifiers and the final, students and schools will likely be looking for coaching and club contacts. These champs represent a great opportunity to introduce new juniors and their family to your club!

We will need assistance on the day with running these events.
If you can take the morning off work, or even have an extended
lunch-break to come and lend a hand it would be greatly appreciated.
If you possess a current working with children check, or have applied
for one and you can be available on one (or more) days, please let me
know ASAP.
