Orienteering NSW invite you to the Xmas 5 Day 2021.

This event had to be cancelled in 2020 due to lockdowns so was rescheduled for this year (2021).

While Covid regulations again prove to be very fluid, we are working hard to bring you 5 days of great orienteering (which seems close to the total number of events most of us have attended this year).

Clubs have courses set and are ready to challenge your orienteering skills which may have gotten rusty due to the lack of practice!

You will find information about the events and locations below or search on Eventor under the date 27/12/2021.

The main things you need to know now are:

a) We will let you know when entries will open. We are holding off and watching things unfold so it may be in October.
b) There will be NO Enter on the Day.
c) EVERYONE will be required to register with the NSW government QR code at each event.
d) Please “Get in” “Run” then “Go home” (or for coffee).
e) Please observe the “Social distancing” rules and any other regulations of the day.
f) The Belanglo Hut remains closed, but there are many other accommodation options in the area.
g) You can now put this event in your diary. We will be in touch!
h) And do have fun!

The event director is Colin Price.
Looking forward to seeing you all (from a distance) in the Southern Highlands.
