Bendigo Orienteers is holding its first event for 2019 on Saturday 2nd of February. The assembly area is the picnic shelter at the No. 7 reservoir in Kangaroo Flat.
There is a choice of a 45-minute Score-O or 2.3 km novice course starting between 8.15 am and 8.35 am (no mass start). The Score-O has 16 controls placed in the bushland within the Crusoe and No. 7 Park, which includes some challenging gold mining terrain. Bring your SI stick, compass and watch for orienteering. Some equipment will be available to loan.
The orienteering events will be followed by breakfast and the Annual General Meeting (AGM). On the menu for breakfast is chicken, champagne (for the grown-ups), salads, fruit and non-alcoholic beverages all supplied by the club. If you don’t want to participate in the orienteering you may arrive at around 9.15 am for breakfast.
The most important part of the AGM will be the election for the following positions in the 2019 committee:
- Ordinary committee members
All positions will be declared vacant prior to the election. If you wish to nominate someone for a committee position and they have consented, please email your nomination to Jenny Ball. This will help the current committee to coordinate its efforts in finding at least one candidate for each position. The roles of the committee members are critical to ensure that the club functions correctly and remains strong.
The AGM and Fowl & Fizz is a free event for all members of Bendigo Orienteers, their families and guardians. For catering purposes, please email Jenny Ball by Wednesday 30th January if you want to attend.
