The 2017 orienteering program in Armidale begins as usual with the February Twilight series. These events will be held on Wenesdays commencing at 5 pm for the first 3 weeks of February and culminate with a 2-day training weekend on the 25th and 26th.
For the training weekend we are lucky to have Atte Lahtinen, a young Finnish orienteer visiting NSW on an Orienteering NSW scholarship. Atte will provide coaching during this weekend and assist with other activities during his short stay in Armidale.
Both NEGS and PLC have expressed interest in attending weekend orienteering activities during term 1, so in addition to the February events, it has been decided to put on two bush events (instead of the usual one) in March. We hope other schools might also be interested in this initiative.
