OWA Council Members 2020

We are pleased to announce that the following people were appointed Council members for 2020 at the AGM on Sunday 22nd March, 2020.Anna Napier

A lot of names are unchanged from last year.  Some newer members may not know our new President - Anna Napier - though she was Easter Carnival Coordinator last year; here's a photo so you can put a face to the name.  Unfortunately social distancing prevented a group photo of all Council members at the AGM.

Orienteering in WA and COVID-19

In line with the recommendation from Orienteering Australia, OWA is suspending all organised orienteering events, including training events until further notice.

Unfortunately with the heightened restrictions, Anytime Orienteering courses are unlikely to be an option for many, but if you are lucky enough to live near any of the following locations, then have a go at one or more of the courses:

Jorgensen Park, Kalamunda                           Manning Park, Spearwood
Lake Leschenaultia, Chidlow                           Whiteman Park
Settlers Common, Armadale                            

And for anyone living further afield, there are courses at Foxes Lair, Narrogin and the Photo O Course in Albany Town Centre

We are working on ideas for orienteering-based activities that people can be doing at home or just locally in accordance with restrictions in place, but any other ideas for activities will be gratefully received and should be forwarded to our secretary, This email address is being protected from spambots.
