Waggaroos cancel all events until further notice

Post date: Mar 24, 2020 6:18:27 AM

The Waggaroos Committee has decided to cancel all scheduled Waggaroos orienteering events effective immediately, due to the escalating health situation with the COVID-19 virus.

While we accept the ONSW position that the advice from the AHPPC does not preclude conduct of small, local orienteering events we feel that for reasons of social responsibility and to mitigate against the risk of reputational damage to the image of orienteering we need to be seen to be doing the right thing by current community expectations. We need to be seen not to be encouraging unnecessary travel, or as providing a possible conduit for introduction of COVID-19 into the Riverina.

While this is very disappointing, it is a consequence of the difficult times we are currently experiencing. Hopefully we can be back in the bush within a few months.

If you would like to do some armchair orienteering whilst we unable to do the real thing, have at look at the World of O website. It has many examples of maps and related stories from all over the world.
