While there is nobody filling the role of Events Coordinator perhaps it's pertinent that we start sharing information around what clubs are doing. To the best of my knowledge next years calendar will look something like:
February 4-6th Waitangi Weekend (PAPO): Somewhere exciting in the South Island (Not JWOC trials)
March 11th Katoa Po (Taupo)
March 18th/19th (TBC) Provisionally Otago Champs Weekend at Naseby.
April 14th-17th Oceania Champs in Auckland
April 19th-20th Middle Earth orienteering Rotorua
April 22nd-29th WMOC in Auckland
June 3rd-5th Queens Birthday (Schools trial) PAPO
October 21st-23rd New Zealand Champs at Labour Weekend in the Hawkes Bay.
- WOA Champs
- AOA Champs
- SI Champs (Nelson by rotation)
- Canterbury Champs (Possibly in combination with QBD or else at the end of the year at Show Weekend)
- JWOC trials
NISS/SISS held sometime close to the usual date at the end of the schools holidays (when WMOC is) Probably mid-May though they may not necessarily be on the same weekend.
NZSS Champs, rotation listed as Wellington, probably on the usual date at the end of the July schools holidays.

In 2017 Nelson is to host the SISS Champs either at the very end of March or in mid-May. We are also hosting the South Island Champs to be either a couple of weeks before the Nationals or Canterbury's Show Weekend.
I think the current plan is for the 2018 SI Champs to be co-hosted between Marlborough and Nelson as Dunedin and PAPO have the Nationals.
