Newcastle Orienteering Club Logo
We are into our second year of Orienteering now. I am embarrased to say that I still barely know the names of any other club members. Everyone is friendly, but they are not very chatty. I have gotten to know one or two, perhaps it is because I am juggling kids that makes it harder to talk.I want to volunteer, but I need to wait until they kids are older.

We are new to orienteering, but it has been a sport that I have wanted to get involved in for over 20years. When I was 17 years old I did an event, and it has taken this long to to it again.

Events happen all over the region, and the volunteers are very helpful. It is another example of a sport that a family can do together, that can be challenging and competitive, but also just a lot of fun. Take it however you will. For us, it is a 2-3km walk around the bush looking for checkpoints, and helping the kids become confident reading maps. In the future we hope to be able to tackle some of the more challenging courses for ourselves.

We joined the Newcastle Orienteering Club, it makes the events a lot cheaper, and also adds a bit of incentive to get to every event (because it can be tempting to just want to sleep in on a Sunday morning).
