Welcome to the Albury Wodonga Orienteering Club. The aim of the club is to provide an opportunity for members of all ages to compete in the growing sport of orienteering.
There are a number of changes to the membership process. To see options for AWOC membership, please CLICK.
Participants, particularly novice members should read the details of how to prepare and compete in orienteering events. Beginners will benefit by reading http://www.orienteering.asn.au/newcomers/ .
If you feel that you want to have a say in the running of the club, ordinary members are entitled and welcome to come along to the AWOC Committee meetings. These take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 8pm at various venues. Feel free to come along and have your input into the running of our club.
As you would appreciate, running a club and activities takes a lot of voluntary effort. We are always after volunteers to assist with committee activities, course design, preparation and setting up and administrative tasks. The work can be good fun and a great learning experience. There will always be experienced members to turn to for advice and volunteers will be trained for the various roles. Let the club know if you are able to help and in what particular activities you are interested.
