Bay of Fires Final Results and Message from Carnival Director, Bert Elson

BOF Day3Thank you to those of you who took part in the Bay of Fires 3 Days.  We hope you enjoyed yourselves.  

If you didn’t compete we thought you might nevertheless be interested in this email.

Final results and maps:

Did you claim your Towel?

Every place getter (1st, 2nd, 3rd) in every age class, including AS and B, won an event logo towel.  This was for both the Australian 3 Days and Bay of Fires 3 Days.  And this was regardless of the number of people in any class.

Most people collected their prizes at the presentations but some of you left early because of travel arrangements or even not realising you’d won a prize.

If you’d like your towel we are happy to post it to you as long as you pay the $12 postage.  Contact us by email by Sunday 15 April to arrange this: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

All unclaimed prizes will be given away to volunteers after this date.

Event Organisation & Plastic Map Bags

We don’t believe in re-inventing the wheel. If you are organising an event in your own state please contact us if you’d like any tips or templates or even to borrow equipment.

A number of people have asked us about our resealable map bags.  Please contact Martin This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like details.

More National Carnivals

We hope you keep attending national carnivals. One of the best things about orienteering is that nearly every event, world wide, is open to everyone. It’s a fun way to travel and explore. 

This year the Australian Championships Carnival is in South Australia in October. Early bird entries close on Sunday 22 April: https://www.sa.orienteering.asn.au/general-information

Warm Regards
