The Victorian Club Relay Champs is being organised by Nillumbik Emus
The event is on Sunday April 7 on our Mt Lofty map near Lake Eppalock, first used last year.
We need to know whether you are interested in being part by Thursday March 28.
We would love as many teams representing the club as possible, so please make it a day to remember. All Nillumbik Emus competitors must be financial members of the club and Orienteering Victoria. We would also like club members to help. There will be a lot of preparation to organise maps, chest numbers, building the software for timing and placing controls. We will need members to act as officials on the day (as well as run) – parking, registration, timing, and managing the map changeover. Once I seethe number of club members entered, I’ll have a better idea of how to roster these jobs. If you are not competing but can still come along to help that will be greatly appreciated.
We will be setting up some of the infrastructure on the Saturday.
Rex Niven is setting the courses on this interesting area and I’m overall organiser. Further details for The Victorian Club Relay Champs are on Eventor. There are two documents on you can download, explaining the details.
Laurie Niven, Team Manager, will manage team selections and enter the teams into Eventor.
