The Eureka Orienteers have set a particularly challenging schedule of local and national events from April to early October 2022. The list of dates, events, course planners, and organisers has a few gaps. Please contact Ian or Blake to keep the high quality of these events by volunteering your valued organisational skills.

Here is a chance for you to make a contribution to this year’s Eureka events.
Having said goodbye to the Jenny and Geoff Lawford at Sandon Forest, we will soon be farewelling the Anitra and Ken Dowling who have sold their “house in the Wheatsheaf forest” and will take up residence back in New Zealand within the next month or so.
With a membership of just 26 our little club will need your help at each event “on the day” so that the usual willing few are not “burned out” by the first week in October.
