Online Entries for Qld Champs close at midnight on Sunday, 27 August.

All orienteers are reminded that entries for this year's Queensland Championships close on Sunday 27 August . The Championships are being held in the Amiens Forest, outside Stanthorpe, on 9 and 10 September, using the maps used for last year's Australian Long and Middle Distance Championships. There will be courses to suit all ages and abilities, so don't be put off by the "Championships" tag, as it is an event open to everyone.

This will be a two-day event, with cumulative times determining final placings. Saturday's courses will be somewhat shorter than Sunday's, with starts from 12.30pm. If you are uncertain about what course you shuold enter, talk to your club technical officer or contact me.

Stanthorpe offers a wide range of accommodation options and basic camping will also be available at the Stanthorpe Showgrounds. We are organising a social get-together on the Saturday night at the Stanthorpe RSL, with meals available from 6pm and tables reserved so that orienteers may sit together

Book and pay for camping with your entry and also indicate here whether you are interested in the dinner.

It promises to be a very enjoyable weekend of orienteering and a great warm up for the Australian Championships being held later next month.
