Many of those selected advised OA High Performance Manager Kay Haarsma of their availability and whether they require an Australian O top. Kay is now overseas. Of those, selected who did not contact Kay, can they please advise OA Executive Officer John Harding at orienteering@netspeed.com.au of their availability and whether they have an Australian O top (and, if not, what size in cms and whether XS/S/M/L). There is a tight timeline to order O tops so a prompt reply would be greatly appreciated.
