Kangaroos' Tales - February 2016

Tuesday, 9 February 2016

Jenny and I hope you enjoyed your Christmas holidays, and that you are looking forward to an active O Year.

Our final major commitment for 2015 was organising the Aust. MTBO champs based at Anglesea. With excelllent new maps by Jon Sutcliffe, and the Cusworth and Gavens clan support - and organisational skills,  the whole carnival was an outstanding success. A job well done and a great finish to the year.

Over the Christmas period many BK members have been active conducting Summer Series and MTBO events. We are more than halfway through our Summer Series Park/Street programme. With over 45 events to prepare across the various series, BK members are to be thanked for the sterling work they do in presenting these events on behalf of the club, for the enjoyment of the Orienteering community.

Having just completed a record breaking Surf Coast series, on Saturday afternoons in January, we are now enjoying our summer MTBO Series with the successful Lysterfield event last week, organised by Carolyn Jackson and the Cusworth’s, and the You Yangs event coming up on Saturday 13th Feb, organised by the Robinson Clan. This is a lovely bike friendly area for anyone who wishes to try a new activity. Details are on the OVic MTBO site.

Our first club theatre night for the year, organised by Annie Hollaway, will be in early June at the Whitehorse Centre, to see the musical Mary Poppins. Booking details to follow.

We have a selection of BK gear to get you looking good for your O year. Collect bike tops, bush O tops, caps and running tops from Jenny/John at an event.
