murrayscownThere is a National Senior Squad training camp being held from Jan 2-9 based at Beechworth, Victoria.

For this camp the new “Rowdy Flat” map and the very old “Kangaroo Crossing” area will be amongst the maps utilised. To do so the organisers have been given special permission by Orienteering Victoria, as these areas are being used in September 2012 for Victorian Championship middle and long distance events.

Thus there will be an embargo on both maps mentioned above, which will take place from January 10th2012. This gives any orienteer the chance to run on these areas until that date.

Additionally, other orienteers are invited to participate at the January camp, especially keen juniors.

Also, in February, after the Sprint the Bay carnival (4-6th) in NZ there will be a senior squad training camp from Feb 7-12th.  Other keen orienteers, juniors or seniors are also invited to participate in this.  For more details contact camp coach leader Jim Russel –
