Message to all Orienteers from the President of Orienteering South Australia
    In the light of the following message from Orienteering Australia (below) and the current situation with Covid -19 all orienteering events and OSA training activities in South Australia will be cancelled until after the June long weekend. Future cancellations will be revisited closer to that time. This will also cancel the OY competition and the schools selection trials.
    We apologize for the disappointment and look forward to the day when we can all go orienteering again.
