TOC President Finishes Term End of October
As of October 31 of this year, David Follette will be stepping down as president of the Tucson Orienteering Club. His leadership has been a great experience for this organization, and he will be greatly missed!
We are looking for a new president who can carry the torch, help ensure that orienteering remains strong in Tucson and continue to build and improve the club. If you are interested, please get in touch with David or any of the board members. We look forward to hearing from you!
Meet Fees & Membership Changes for 2015
In an effort to keep up with inflation and changing times the Tucson Orienteering Club board of directors has approved an increase in meet fees (for the first time in 10 years). The increase in revenue will help us continue to replace aging equipment, reimburse volunteers for meet expenses, and develop maps for more areas around Tucson. Thank you for your continued participation in club events, and we look forward to seeing you at future events!
Travel Discounts For Orienteers
Through a partnership negotiated by Orienteering USA, orienteers (whether members or not) and their families can save 15% any time they stay at one of the Choice family of hotels/motels. You may also save on rental cars. Some of the sponsorships include an amount returned to Orienteering USA to support orienteering programs.
For more info, see the Sponsor Discounts page at the Orienteering USA website.
Outside News Links Page Retired
Due to lack of new content and in order to simplify our website, the "Outside News" page at TucsonOrienteeringClub.org has been retired. However, the links that were on that page and that are still working may still be accessed from the archive list below. Future news from outside sources regarding our club events and its members will continue to be featured on our online "News" page.
