Oceania shuffles to 2022

Yes, Oceania has moved along a year! Wow, and what a year it has been so far. Current restrictions at the New Zealand border are very tight in response to COVID-19. So at this point to go ahead with the event in January 2021 is not achievable. Peninsula and Plains Orienteers (PAPO) have been negotiating with Orienteering NZ, Orienteering Australia, and the International Orienteering Federation on various options since March this year. To that effect, we are pleased to announce that the Oceania Orienteering Championships will now take place in January 2022 (COVID-19 allowing). All current embargoes will be extended to 2022. At this time it is too early for defined dates, but we ask you to mark down in your calendars from early to mid January and we will confirm the new dates as soon as we can. We look forward to good health in the year to come and to January 2022.
