Family Entry Discount: The family discount aims to help keep the sport of orienteering affordable for families. A family is defined as 2 adults plus any number of their junior or sub-junior dependents. The fourth and subsequent dependents will not be charged an entry fee for events. This is automatically calculated by Eventor as long as all family members are entered at the same time as part of a combined entry.  On the confirmation screen under Order entry, you will see that the discount is applied for the fourth and subsequent dependents.

For families with entries in BOTH SL1 and NOL1, Eventor cannot calculate the discount.   If you wish to claim a family discount in this case, enter and pay in the regular manner and then please email: Treasurer at Garingal.com.au  and include details of all family members.

 

Starting times: Saturday’s Middle Distance from 11am; NOL Relay mass start at 1.30pm.  Sunday: From 9.30am (non-Elites on Hard 1 to 4 courses can start before or after the Elites).
