As an orienteering club, we must comply with Orienteering New Zealand (ONZ) guidelines that have been released. The most recent guidelines can be found here.
Key elements of the Guidelines are below (key point is to avoid congregation in large groups)
- Clubs not rushing in
- maximum of 100 people per football field is not comparable or suitable for orienteering
- no congregation of more than 10 people in one area
- spread timings of congregation over the day
- 2m social distancing
- No contact with organizers etc
We have had to change the date of the AOS event to held on the Waiuku Forest North map. It will now be held on Sunday 23 August instead of 16 August
