Its been a big week for Newcastle Orienteering Club but first...

Got a mountain bike? is it just gathering dust in the garage? Why not dust it off and give Mountain Bike Orienteering a go! Next weekend sees an event so check the upcoming events for more details. Also if thatbike needs a service go along to Cycle Fitness Nutrition (link to the left) and mention you are an orienteer for a 20% discount on the service (not including parts). So go along to 133 Scott Street Newcastle NSW and have a chat with their helpful staff. Remember they are sponsoring us this year so support those that support us.

There will also be bike jerseys for sale in club livery. Sizes from S to XXL - they will cost $50.

Newcastle Orienteering this year took out club of the year for NSW. Also the Presidents Award went to club stalwarts Carolyn and Russell Rigby for both their behind the scenes and public work in the promotion of orienteering. Unfortunately Garingal just got us by 30 odd points in the inter-club challenge... next year Garingal, next year. For a full list of awards from the NSW presentations night - check out this link.

Finally we welcome new orienteering blood with the arrival of a daughter, Clara, to club member Damian Welbourne. Photos and more details should be coming soon.
