Compete Safely!

Participants, particularly novice members should read the details of how to prepare and compete in orienteering events. Beginners will benefit by reading http://orienteering.asn.au/index.php/getting-started

Committee Meetings

If you feel that you want to have a say in the running of the club, ordinary members are entitled and welcome to come along to the AWOC Committee meetings. These take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 8pm at various venues. Feel free to come along and have your input into the running of our club.

Volunteering

As you would appreciate, running a club and activities takes a lot of voluntary effort.  We are always after volunteers to assist with committee activities, course design, preparation and setting up and administrative tasks.  The work can be good fun and a great learning experience.  There will always be experienced members to turn to for advice and volunteers will be trained for the various roles.  Let the club know if you are able to help and in what particular activities you are interested.

Other News


Running Singlets
Fabrizio is organising running singlets which recognize the role AWOC played in founding and organizing the Nail Can Hill run for 30 plus years. If you need a new singlet or are participating in the NCHR these would be ideal. For more details Click Here.

Defibrillator
The club has now taken possession of a defibrillator, which must be taken to all events, as it could be a lifesaver in an emergency. Eight club members attended a training session last week and the equipment is very simple to use. You take it from the container, press a button to turn it on and it voice prompts you on what steps to follow.

Course Setters Required

The club is seeking course setters for all the Albury events in the upcoming Interclub competition. Mentoring and coaching are available if you are interested, but lack the necessary experience. See the events calendar on the Events page for details. Please contact Rick at rickarm@hotmail.com if you can assist.
