YALANGA HOME PAGE
Yalanga Orienteering Club emphasises FUN
and participation. To promote the social aspects of Orienteering, the
club normally has at least one weekend away (including a meal at a
local pub) somewhere in South Australia each season. We also hold an
annual BBQ AGM and Christmas Dinner. To encourage participation,
Yalanga members can enter most Yalanga-run events for only $2!
On the more serious side,
Yalanga organises and runs about four or five Orienteering events per
year. The planning is done mainly at club meetings, which are held as
needed at a member's home. All Yalanga members are welcome and
encouraged to come along to these meetings, with motivation provided in
the form of a (shared) supper and chance to bring maps and discuss
courses. The Yalanga events themselves are great fun with many Yalanga
hands making light work.
Yalanga currently offers
family and individual memberships, and school memberships. Our members
live all over Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills, and ages from toddler to
75 are represented. Members range from those with mainly social and/or
recreational interest, to those competing at the top Australian and
international levels in their age group. Our club also has members who
have special interests in Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTBO), and
organize events and compete enthusiastically.
In recent years, our
Orienteering club has become a focal point for Rogainers who seek to
practice navigation skills, between Rogaines, in like-minded company.
Yalanga Orienteers currently has as members a number of Rogainers who
have achieved top-10 placings in the state, nationally and
