On Friday 1 August, David Hogg (pictured with wife Sandra) was inducted as an Associate Member of the ActewAGL ACT Sport Hall of Fame. David was honoured for his contribution to Orienteering in Australia over his nearly 40 years involvement in the sport.
He was a founding member and the inaugural president of the Orienteering Federation of Australia (nowadays Orienteering Australia). He was also a founding member and the inaugural president of the AC.T. Orienteering Association (nowadays Orienteering ACT).
The citation, which will be published in detail in the September edition of The Australian Orienteer, recognised his vision, enthusiasm and energy over four decades. During this period he held many positions on national and local boards and was also involved in key supporting committees such as mapping, regulations, development and promotion. He is still active as OACT’s landholder liaison officer, an event official and a competitor.
David’s contribution to Orienteering will receive further recognition at the 2009 Orienteering Australia Annual Awards with the inaugural presentation of the David Hogg Medal for Services to Event Management.
