Girls Group Grows
Thursday, 18 September 2014
FOG (Focus On Girls) provides girls aged 10 to 16 years with the chance to meet other girls interested in orienteering. They have been meeting as a group now since May.
A core of around 10 are regular attendees with a further 10 joining intermittently depending on after school commitments. There's a passion for charging around in the bush. Off-track running is their forte! FOG will reconvene into Term 4 with more challenges ahead. New girls wanting to join or if you just want to find out a little more, text Toni on 0411 968 001. Scroll down for more exciting news items including the Easter 2016 Logo Competition where you can win $50. Entries close in October.
