Helpers Roster

Garingal runs many events each year and we need club members to assist the organiser of each event, to get things done and to make sure everyone enjoys their orienteering.

So twice a year, we put together a Helpers Roster with members who have volunteered to be helpers at a coming Garingal event.  We do this for the Summer events (mostly Sydney Summer Series score events on a Wednesday afternoon) and for the Winter events in the Sydney region - mostly on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings.

JUNE 2019:  Updated Helpers Roster for 2019 Winter events (pdf).

HELP NEEDED: Extra helpers are needed for the Willoughby Emerge Event on 15 September. If you can help please contact Rod Eckels ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

NEW AUGUST 2019: Interim Helpers Roster for 2019-20 Summer events (pdf).

HELP NEEDED: This is an interim roster, created so that the earliest SSS events have the helpers that are needed. Extra helpers will be needed from November onwards... If you can help please contact Carol Jacobosn ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) after 15 September.

Helpers: Please contact the organiser of your rostered event to let them know if you will be there. Helping is voluntary but it does help the organiser to know if you will or WON'T be there.  

Organisers: please email any helpers you have not heard from, some volunteered many months ago and people can forget.
