Kevin Maloney Story

Kevin and the O’Shop he took to all events including interstate carnivals

Early in the 1970s, Kevin saw a centre page spread in the Sun News Pictorial in which Warren and Sue Key were shown orienteering at Yarra Bend Park.

This appealed so he started attending events at Gembrook, Strath Creek, Mt Egerton and other places. He joined St Leo’s orienteering club which later amalgamated with Melbourne University Mountaineering Club, then Ex-Melbourne University (EMUs). A further amalgamation, led to Nillumbik Emus.

Kevin kept attending even after he experienced serious health set backs. His ability to source humour from everyday things remained undiminished. We loved that quality and the enduring spirit that brought it out. Kevin passed away in 2016.
