Look cool, feel cool in a new GO T-shirt

New T-shirt

The first of our new T-shirts have arrived – with a brand new look.

These first 10 shirts are for everyone to try on before they place their order, so when their T-shirt arrives (in a few weeks’ time) it will fit perfectly.

We have shirts to try on in the following sizes:  Men’s: S, M, L, XL, 2XL and Women’s: S, M, L, XL. (Other sizes like men’s and women’s XS and 3XL can be ordered if your size is not in our current range. Children’s sizes can also be ordered.)

The Special Introductory price for club members is $32 per shirt. (They will normally cost $40.)

We are taking preliminary orders now. Members can finalise their order and pay for the shirts through this link to Eventor, or by direct deposit to Garingal’s bank account (details will be emailed to those who place a preliminary order).  

The last day for orders will be noon Sunday 26/11, so we can get the shirts before Christmas. We will have the shirts at SSS events on 15 & 22/11, Maroubra on 12/11, the NSW Sprint Champs on 19/11 and probably the WSSS event on 26/11.

Don’t delay - try on a new T-shirt today!

Can I borrow a Garingal map?

Can I borrow a map to run my own event or training ?


   Maps are an important resource to the club and represent a huge investment.  Therefore maps are not generally available to club members.   


   However,  if you have a need to access a map for your own special event, you may complete a request form to ask the committee to review your purpose. Typically it's easier to borrow older maps that have already had full cost recovery while new maps are not easily approved.  The review is conducted based on the Club's Map Lending Policy which is available to the committee and may change over time.  The policy discusses a number of topics  like the purpose of the loan, any financial gains, reciprocal arrangements etc.  Just fill in the form  ** here **  and all relevant information should be available to the committee.

Wagga Wagga, June 2017

Garingal took a team of 35 to the Australian 3-Days carnival in Wagga over the June long weekend and returned with eight badges.

The terrain was a mixture of intense granite and spur-gully eucalypt forest, making for testing navigation on all three days.

The weather and courses were wonderful and the three assembly arenas afforded scenic views of both the finish and the surrounding landscapes.
