After a sequence of meetings, document work and procedures, the Metropolitan Orienteering Club is officially launched to the public in the preceding week.
The foundation of MetOC originally stemmed from the idea that a new club can empower more orienteers previously under-represented in the Orienteering Association. Then I was able to call on the help of some orienteering friends, most of whom are from my university. The club evolved as a potential platform to organize trainings and competitions for which new possibilities can be created. It is also hoped that more orienteers can therefore contribute to the sport and make it flourish.
MetOC will organize three trainings (31/1, 23/2, 14/3) mainly targeting at students but also welcome to all, as well as races in the later part of this year. Visit http://www.facebook.com/metropolitanorienteering for more details.
