Event report: NavDash3 & AGM
Sunday, 26 March 2023
North Lake Senior Campus, Kardinya
The third NavDash event of the year saw a huge turn out of people (69 on the long course alone!). A brand new map, drawn specifically for this event, provided many tricky challenges, yet still enabled some crazy speeds to be reached. Many thanks to the North Lake Senior Campus Admin staff for allowing us access to the area. It shows that some tight campuses can be used for our local sprint orienteering events.
A big thank you to setter Graham Braid, and a myriad of helpers on the day. Control collection was ably coordinated by Vanessa Smith and had many of OWA’s juniors picking up the controls. Thanks to Kate Braid, Lachlan Braid, Rohan Braid, Archie Brownlie, Fraser Brownlie, Edmund Toomey and Quinn Lommers for their efforts. Thanks to Ceri Pass and Heike Behrbohm for taking on the instructor’s duties.
Orienteering Western Australia's Annual General Meeting was held after the NavDash event. Congratulations and thank you to those members who put up their hands to take on the various roles and commit to leading OWA in the next 12 months. Thank you also to the retiring Council members for their contributions to OWA.
