ONSW awards 2018

 BulmanGO at the Awards:  

Garingal couple John and Liz Bulman have won Orienteering NSW's new Volunteer of the Year award for their tireless efforts at many events.

John & Liz are passionate volunteers who regularly assist at ONSW, club, and SOS events.   For ONSW, they help at school regional carnivals, school programs, Space Racing, and promotional events. Both regularly donate their rostered days off work and have even been known to take leave to help out. Whether it be driving around Sydney collecting equipment, running a start for hundreds of eager but inexperienced students, sorting a zillion p-Cards, coaching beginners, running the results computer, course marshalling, or putting out or collecting controls, they get through a mountain of tasks and do it with a smile on their face - and they do it enormously well.

The SOS events in particular are a weekly commitment. Our winners are always among the first to arrive putting controls out and setting up as well as last to leave after collecting controls at the day’s end. Always cheerful and always helpful, their skills and experience are highly valued.

For Garingal, they assist at events in many ways. This year they have organised an ultrasprint but also volunteered to assist putting controls out, collecting controls, beginner coaching and much, much more.

Something special about this couple is that not only do they regularly volunteer as part of rosters or pleas for assistance - they foresee a need and offer to assist even before a request is made.

They are worthy winners. They are excellent representatives of orienteering: always cheerful, always helpful, and always thoughtful.

At the ONSW presentation day on Saturday, Garingal members won 23 OY badges: four for first place, 13 for second, and six for third.
