Orienteering Tasmania is pleased to announced the Tasmanian Government’s support of ET2018. We have been awarded $10,000 in grants towards our expenses. These funds will be used to ensure our carnival is run to the highest standard.
From Events Tasmania we have secured a $7000 Championship Grant for holding a competition that will attract over 400 people staying at least three nights. Through Communities, Sport and Recreation we have secured a $3000 National Championship Grant.
Previous support of successive Tasmanian Governments has enabled Orienteering Tasmania to develop a reputation for delivering quality events and puts us in a strong position to keep attracting orienteers from the mainland and further afield.
There are major expenses in running ET2018 including obtaining aerial imagery for making quality maps, using the latest Sport Ident Air Card technology and the logistics of setting up assembly arenas in the middle of nowhere.
The support of the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania and Communities, Sport and Recreation is greatly welcomed.
