Omega orienteering
Omega is a Flemish orienteering club which was founded in 1977, in the Flemish-Brabantine Diest.
Anno 2010 Omega is the largest orienteering association of the country with members coming from all over Flanders.
All those years, Omega has been very active concerning:
  • the production of IOF-maps (approximately 11,000 hectares have been mapped)
  • organisations (more than 130 competitions among which several Belgian and Flemish championships, 2 Three and 1 Five days of Belgium, several international competitions,…)
  • youth functioning (among other things awarded twice by Bloso as youth friendly sports club).
Concerning the sportive aspect, Omega has obtained very deserving results on both the individual and the collective domain: challenge-cups, team competitions, members who took part in international championships, …
Club activities
Omega organises each year approximately 15 competitions: championships, national races, regional races, sprints, night races, …
Each year we try to organise an alternative club championship "The Blissful Orienteer". This is a playful mixture of activities with a zest of absurdly orienteering.
Further we have an annual club party (in the spring), where for once, we do not find each other in sport attire. Beside nice food and drinks, this is a sociable meeting with games, celebrations and much more of this.
When the occasion occurs, we go with all interested clubmembers on a weekend trip to train in delicious orientation areas (e.g. Fontainebleau in France).
Our youth functioning has besides its current activities (youth accompaniment during competitions, a meeting evening, training sessions,…) each year a peak highlight during the holiday period. After the midweeks in Wirtzfeld, Hechtel and Eindhoven we went the past years a bit further with training weeks in Åmål (Sweden), Myssen (Norway), Novy Bor (Czech Republic) and Logatec (Slovenia).
On administrative aspect Omega is an association without profit eye mark (VZW), where the general meeting (in the middle of January) chooses a governing board that meets annually 11 times.
