  • Vale Roy Bierton : Sadly Roy passed away on Sunday, 17th of October at age 97 years after a very short illness with pneumonia. Roy was an OHOC member for many years and a Treasurer of OASA prior to the Jennie Bourne era. Although it was at least perhaps 10 years since he orienteered he loved to walk in Belair Park each Saturday morning which he was able to do in early October, having driven himself to the park from his home in Netley.

The 2021 SA Middle-Distance Championships were held on the Sunday morning at Paradise, using a section of the map that had not been used for a long time. It was mostly fast-running terrain, generally mallee, but with large areas of rough open land. Many controls were located on watercourses or erosion gullies. The three longest courses had to cross a ridge system that bisected the map, offering long legs with large-scale route choices.

The event was presented by Tjuringa Orienteers with Aylwin Lim as the course planner, and controller Robin Uppill
