Cancellation of Orienteering activities in SA

A message to all Orienteers from the President of Orienteering South Australia

 In the light of the following message from Orienteering Australia (below) and the current situation with COVID -19,  all orienteering events and training in South Australia will be cancelled until after the June long weekend. Future cancellations will be revisited closer to that time. This will also cancel the OY competition and the schools selection trials.

We apologize for the disappointment and look forward to the day when we can all go orienteering again.

Rob Tucker,

From Orienteering Australia

As you will be aware, there have been a number of further developments today. In particular, the Federal Government has advised against all non-essential domestic travel, and Victoria, NSW and ACT have advised of shutdowns of non-essential activities in their states (with other jurisdictions likely to follow in the near future).

Although, to our knowledge, no formal recommendations have yet been made with respect to outdoor sport, OA regrettably finds it necessary in light of today's developments to recommend that State Associations suspend all remaining organised orienteering events. We are aware that some States have already done so.

We are aware that a number of State Associations are pursuing permanent/virtual course options to allow people to train individually during this period, and encourage the use of such options within the bounds of any restrictions which may be imposed (which may vary from region to region). Experience overseas is that attitudes have varied widely from place to place, with individual outdoor exercise in parks and forests encouraged in some countries and heavily restricted in others.
