ABOUT US:
Peninsula & Plains Orienteers (PAPO) is the Canterbury Orienteering club. Based in Christchurch with members as far afield as Timaru, Pleasant Point, Geraldine, Rangiora and Hanmer Springs.  We are a friendly bunch of volunteers who aim promote orienteering and encourage navigation using maps for fun and competition.

 

UPCOMING EVENTS:
See Upcoming Events for those events coming up soon or the  Calendar for the full program for the year. These range from training and fun events to fully competitive events at the local and national level. The programme includes classic orienteering events, MTB orienteering and rogaines. Non-members are always welcome.

 

OCEANIA ORIENTEERING CHAMPS:
As at February 2021, Peninsula and Plains Orienteers, with the support of other South Island Orienteering clubs, continue to plan for a series of high-quality Orienteering events from 9 - 17 January 2022. Whether these events can be the Oceania Orienteering Champs is dependent on the agreement of Orienteering New Zealand, Orienteering Australia, and the International Orienteering Federation closer to the time. This in turn is likely to be dependent on fairly accessible cross-border travel and the latest health and safety advice.
