Eureka Orienteers Membership
Joining Eureka Orienteers brings with it the benefits of reduced entry fees to events, an active and friendly social network, and access to orienteers who are willing to help you develop your orienteering skills and techniques.
Eureka Orienteers: $5 per adult (21 or more years at 31 Dec) per year. FREE per junior (up to 20 years at 31 Dec) per year. Juniors under 18 on 1 Jan must have at least one adult member living at the same address.
Orienteering Victoria: $35 per adult (21 or more years at 31 Dec) per year. FREE per junior (up to 20 years at 31 Dec) per year. Optionally, a subscription to the Australian Orienteer magazine (4 issues per year) is an additional $30 – note that this is per copy, so only subscribe one person in your household to the magazine if you only want one copy, not everyone!
All members intending to enter events are strongly encouraged to join Orienteering Victoria, to gain access to member-only entry fee discounts for most events, eligibility to enter state championship and national-level events, and receive regular email communications about orienteering. Members of Orienteering Victoria are now required to also be members of at least one Victorian club. Also, the Family Membership option available previously has been discontinued – all memberships to Orienteering Victoria and Eureka must now be set up individually. To compensate for the loss of Family Memberships, the fees to join Orienteering Victoria as individuals are now considerably cheaper than in past years, and most families and households will pay less overall than in the past.
How to Join
New to Orienteering? Club memberships for all clubs in Victoria, and the state association, Orienteering Victoria, are managed centrally through the Orienteering Australia online “Eventor” system, located at http://eventor.orienteering.asn.au. Highly recommend bookmarking this page, as it is where most upcoming orienteering events throughout Australia are listed and entered online from. Eventor is also used to manage memberships to state associations such as Orienteering Victoria, and all clubs.
If you want to join Eureka Orienteers only as a social or non-competing member, and not join Orienteering Victoria, it is recommended that you not set up an Eventor account! Use the form below to contact us, and pay $5 per adult (21 or older at 31 Dec), with all juniors Free, directly to the Treasurer.
The Eventor system is quite easy to use to register for events, however, it can be a little tricky to navigate when setting up new memberships for the very first time. If you are not confident about establishing new accounts and managing memberships in Eventor, please complete and Submit the form further down this page. The club committee will use the information you provide to assist you with creating or renewing your membership, and setting up Eventor accounts on your behalf.
Setting up Eventor Accounts
First, browse to the Eventor webpage. You will need to create a new account for each person in your household that you intend joining as competing members, using the Register Me link on the left side. This is important, as the Eventor system also manages online entries, and each person will need to set up personal information such as name, date of birth for age class, preferred age class, and SI stick number, that are used each time you enter an event. It takes a little time to set up initially, but only needs to be done once, then maintained as information changes over time.
Once everyone has an Eventor account, log in as each person separately and perform the following steps. Select My Pages, then My Memberships. Click on Apply for Membership. Select the year, then the State (Orienteering Victoria), then the club (Eureka Orienteers). Membership options will appear when you select the Club to Eureka – these are for information only at this point. Then click Next.
On the next page, check your personal details in the fields towards the bottom of the page, and correct if necessary. Then select the radio buttons next to the membership types you want to apply for. You must select one option under Orienteering Victoria, and one option under Eureka Orienteers.
When you’ve selected the radio buttons, click Next and proceed through the remaining screens.
If there are more people in your household to add, use the Manage memberships for another person link and add additional memberships as above.
Once all members are added, you can pay for all the memberships together via PayPal or Poli. Note that for a household, if you only want one copy of the Australian Orienteer magazine posted out, you only want one person to select the “& Magazine Posted” subscription option; the rest should all select the “& Magazine Online” option.
If this is confusing and you need help, please ask any of the Eureka Committee for further assistance, or complete the form below.
