The-Australian-Orienteer---Sept-2020-coverThis will be published in the last week of August.

With no AUS Championships Carnival this year our juniors are missing the chance to catch up with friends and participate in major events, so we looked for ways to recognise and celebrate our Juniors across the country. The September edition celebrates junior orienteers from WA, SA and Tasmania. Juniors from other States will be recognised in the December magazine.

In the September magazine we also take a detailed look at how MTBO started, Steve Bird continues his series on "How to Improve your Orienteering", Ross Barr explores the foibles of the "Triangle Kiss", we congratulate the recipients of IOF and OA awards, there's a section on MapRun which has been a real boon in Covid times, the NSW Institute of Sport shows us how to be positive about our nutrition, there's some exercises for the mind in Spot the Difference and Navigation Nightmare, there's a profile on Sweden's Peo Bengtsson (87 years old, still going strong and 5940 events to his name), and Tash Key sits down with Orienteering's power couple Vroni Konig-Salmi and Janne Salmi. There's also O-Spy, News and Duncan Currie's "Jeff".

Good reading not to be missed.
