NZ Orienteering Champs 2016

08 April 2016

Lots of PAPO members were in Nelson and St Arnaud over Easter for the NZ Orienteering Champs. Once again PAPO dominated. Winning the Inter-club Points Competition, the Junior Relay and the Senior Relay. 

It was a great experience, with some good results, though some of us did spend more time enjoying the bird song in the forest than we really wished. Nelson put on a great event, assisted by several members of other clubs. I know they really appreciated the help from PAPO members.
