Red Kiwis club are looking for a supplier to make plaques for some permanent orienteering course markers. Any suggestions?

Was Lindsay Smith doing this a while back? (Posted in full understanding that 'a while back' may have no relevance to 'now', but maybe it will help inspire a more useful answer)

It is Lindsay. Hawkes Bay have done a QR Code course I think. Another option is one of the smartphone apps that work similar to Strava. No experience with either of those alternatives.

Ok, thanks for the replies. Yes it was Lindsay Smith in the South Island who supplied the original ones. Looking in to a metal works shop. Cheers

O Waikato got 100 basic markers made 75mm by 75mm. The square was called 'Signbond'. Some sort of firm plastic. Cost $50 + GST. Then we got a sign printing company to print the marker (Orange triangle & letter & Number) on to this product. That part cost $387 incl GST. So about $440 all up for 100 markers.

We also did some QR code markers using what Hawkes Bay did. We just used the Hawkes Bay suppliers. These were stickers on Aluminium plates. 40 of these cost us about $190.

I can give you more info if you want Fraser.
