COVID 19 reshapes our outdoor activities

Sadly, Garingal had no option but to postpone our NSW Middle/Long Champs events at Eugowra (now the weekend after Easter next year).  It seems so long ago that we technically could have conducted our events because we were not expecting 500 participants.  Now today, April 2nd, we would be limited to one person organising at the venue, and only one competitor!!

But you can still leave your house to exercise...

Get creative... At-home O activities are popping up all over the web and social media sites.  If you have children, consider getting them to map your house and garden and set courses.  Does not matter if it is only a sketch, but for older children you might introduce them to Open Orienteering Mapper software.  Or, the free trial of OCAD today offers symbols suited to the home environment (https://ocad.com/blog/2020/03/map-your-home/).

With all events cancelled or postponed for at least another 90 days to the end of June at least, we need to rethink a lot of things.  Income for those in the office at ONSW and OA relies on events.  Please tell friends who have not renewed because they think they are getting no bang for their buck, to renew anyway if they are in a position to do so?  Think of it as a donation to keep Orienteering in NSW ready to roll again when this virus gets subdued.

Take care

Barbara Junghans, President.
