How to join up

All membership applications or renewals are done through the Eventor Australia website, NOT the Orienteering Queensland website.

 

For NEW membership applications, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you follow the instructions on the attached PDF , particulary for FAMILY memberships.

For those wishing to compete regularly on a casual non-member basis , it's recommended that you set up an Eventor Account on the "casual QLD" list.

There's no membership fee required. It will be easier then to enter events as a casual entry.It also makes it easier for organisers to have contact details for you. Follow the instructions on the attached PDF

NOTE: existing memberships valid as at October 31,2020 will be rolled over into 2021 at no additional charge to members, due to the effects of COVID19. No renewal action will therefore be required until 2022 renewals.

NOTE: Membership payments by PayPal/Credit card is the preferred method and will NOT incur a surcharge

Any queries, contact the Membership Officer at membership@oq.asn.au.

New members should read the information below then click on the link at the bottom of the page to go to Eventor. You will need to begin by creating an Eventor account for you and each of your family members if you don't already have one.

It does not provide insurance that covers personal injury while orienteering. Members are encouraged to consider personal accident insurance.
