Orienteering Events

OWAflagsGet your diaries out...

With COVID-19 restrictions easing, events begin again on Sunday 5 July. 

Eventor and the calendar now show an updated program of events from the beginning of July until the middle of October. 
Here is the updated schedule for those who want to print it off:
   OWA Amended Calendar 2020 (PDF)
It should be noted that some of these are only provisional so do check before you set off for an event that it hasn't been moved.

For those who were looking forward to the events in Narrogin/Dryandra at the beginning of June, they are now scheduled for the September long weekend.  

PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR NOW ALL EVENTS ARE PRE-ENTRY  SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE REGISTERED BY THE THURSDAY BEFORE THE EVENT. 
THIS WILL CONTINUE WHILE WE ARE STILL IN THE PHASE 4 RESTRICTION PERIOD. 
THERE WILL BE NO ENTRY ON THE DAY - THIS IS PART OF OUR COVID-SAFETY PLAN;
NOR WILL THERE BE ANY NEWCOMERS' BRIEFINGS FOR BEGINNERS.

Orienteering Events and COVID-19

In line with current restrictions on outdoor activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, all orienteering events are cancelled for the time being.

You can be sure that we will have events running again just as soon as we can.
Check back here or our Facebook page when restrictions on outdoor activities are lifted further.

For now, with hiking and camping allowed again, why not check out our Anytime Orienteering courses. 
All the old permanent courses have been updated and new courses set up too. 

We hope to see you just as soon as we can.

In the meantime, if you haven't tried orienteering yet or you want to show your friends what it's all about, check out this video created by ONSW.

Orienteering in WA and COVID-19

In line with the recommendation from Orienteering Australia, OWA is suspending all organised orienteering events, including training events until further notice.

Unfortunately with the heightened restrictions, Anytime Orienteering courses are unlikely to be an option for many, but if you are lucky enough to live near any of the following locations, then have a go at one or more of the courses:

Jorgensen Park, Kalamunda                           Manning Park, Spearwood
Lake Leschenaultia, Chidlow                           Whiteman Park
Settlers Common, Armadale                            

And for anyone living further afield, there are courses at Foxes Lair, Narrogin and the Photo O Course in Albany Town Centre
