Next event and AGM

Sunday 1st May, foot rogaine at Mangamahoe, mass start 12 noon, up to 2 hours to visit as many controls as you can, finish by 2pm. Starting at the dam road end, use the main public entrance opposite Kent Rd and drive to the end.

Followed by the AGM starting by 2:30pm We'd like as many as can stay to attend the AGM - we have people for all executive roles, but if you have an interest in ensuring the management of the club continues we'd welcome you onto the committee.
If you can't make it to the Rogaine, just pop along to the AGM.
Wet weather venue for the AGM is Lorna and Jonathon's house 565 Junction Road (multi letterboxes beside the Hillary Challenge sign, town side of Water Treatment Plant - long driveway, take all the right turn options).

Setters required for events during the year

Our coming events tab shows the calendar at the moment and you can see we are a bit short of events and setters for the rest of the year. If you can help us out contact Jacqui at nandjcycle@gmail.com or phone 06 7510676.
Not set an event before but keen to have a go? We have people available to mentor you and help through the process. Have a go, the bonus is that it helps your normal orienteering skills.

Next Event Foot rogaine at Mangamahoe 1st May

We've settled on 1st May for this event to avoid the MTB Club cross country champs being held on 8th May. See link on right under Events
This will be a 2 hour event where you choose the route to find as many checkpoints as you can in the time, penalty points incurred if you return after 2 hours. You can go out solo or in teams.
