ORIENTEERING IS OVER FOR 2015

Congratulations to all of the Award Winners. See the Photos page.


THANKS to the SCOUTS for joining us at Donington.
Well done to the group that managed to finish the course without marking the map!

Check out some of the photos for this and previous events.


Despite the fair weather, plenty of orienteers came out to the event in Lincoln National Park
to use the Fisherman's Carcase map.
Here Tim, David and Brian discuss Tim's route choice!

Check out the photos on the Photo page.


Lincoln Orienteers had a bit of a break after the SA Champs event.
The EP Relays was the first event and we travelled to Saltbush Territory, near Whyalla.
HOW NICE it was to take part and not have to organise, cater etc.

A BIG THANKS to Saltbush. We enjoyed the event, commeraderie and a different terrain.
We DID NOT enjoy passing over all the trophies, but no love has been lost. You are our soul spirits.


The Champs are done and dusted! Thanks to the many involved.
Mount Dutton provided many challenges right from the start for some.
There was a 900m climb to get the the START! The views were fantastic.
