More excitement than you can shake a stick at........

Revised permissions in place for the Club Champs, unfortunately the fences will be "ON"

Club Champs FINAL date change (honestly!)

Due to the unusual number of juniors, parents and other seniors with Adventure Race commitments on 7th June we are moving the 
Club Champs at TOPEC to Sunday 14th June
Starting at TOPEC camp on Hydro Rd. 
Registration from 11.30am with a very tight window of ½ hour for starts (12 noon to 12.30pm). Course closes at 2pm and prize giving will follow shortly after. 
Medals for first place in each category. 
Please plan to stay on a little longer as helpers would be appreciated after the prize giving to pick up controls (no daylight saving now so it gets dark real quick).
Grades and courses: 
Red long - Junior M/W (under 19 ), Open M/W, Senior M (50 to under 65)
Red short - Senior W (50 and over), Old Boys (65 and over) 
Orange - Junior M/W (under 15), Non champs competitors
Yellow - Non champs competitors

NOTE: Your Orienteering age is the age you become this calendar year  i.e. if you turn 18 any time in 2015 you are in the 18 age group for the whole year. Great if your birthday is in December!

Barrett Score Event

Thanks everyone for a great turnout, hope I didn't scare anyone off with the high level of difficulty. For those of you who helped get in controls thank you very much.
Results for the event are here.

Event this Sunday 10th May

Nick is creating an interesting score event (ie rogaine) at Barrett Domain as a fill in for the postponed club champs. See you there - noon mass start. Dry and overcast weather predicted - just right for a run around this lovely area.

AGM Wed 13th May

Starting at 7pm at NPBHS - follow these instructions provided by Phil.
"We can use the Commerce block ... to get there drive in by Pridham hall, veer right, veer left at the bell tower and drive past some empty space on the right, past a roundabout and tree, new block on the left, then the gully ground on the left. Park anywhere around here and head for the noise!!! The Commerce block is behind the technology block on the right."
This is  probably the spot (in the red ellipse!!)

As an added bonus, the Hillary team is practicing their skit and will present it at 8pm (in a nearby classroom - hence the noise mentioned above). We intend to be finished with the AGM in quick time so we can support these young people.

Usual AGM rules apply - everyone welcome, the more the merrier. In fact if you have been enjoying the orienteering offered by the club it may be time that you gave back something by joining the committee.

Club champs postponed - novelty score event on Sunday 10th instead

To give us enough time to get the Club Champs properly organized we are postponing them to 7th June, still at TOPEC (which has been remapped and expanded). There will be some seriously good courses so will be worth the wait.
In it's place this Sunday 10th May Nick is organizing a Novelty Score event at Barrett Domain. Noon mass start from the Roto St entrance. Get there at 11:30am for registration. Happy Mother's Day!
