The achievements of DROC members were recognised and awarded at the Orienteering Victoria AGM. Lanita Steer won the Junior Rockhopper award for the 5th year in a row – the most of any junior in OV history.
Ray Howe received the Orienteering Victoria Services Award, in recognition of his huge contribution to Park and Street Orienteering, including The Millennium Club, Park and Street Championships, and participation statistics. Ray has continued to come up with ways to add value to Orienteering.
Debbie and Ian Dodd became the second and third DROC members to be given Life Membership of Orienteering Victoria (the first being Wally Cavill). This honour has only been given to 18 previous OV members. “We were both surprised and delighted” they said on receiving their Life Member certificates.
