The Mike Cassells Award for Services to Orienteering in the ACT was introduced in 1991 in memory of Mike Cassells who died following a car accident en route home after the 1990 Australian Relay Championships. Mike had been involved with Orienteering in the ACT since the beginning of 1974 as a competitor, fieldworker, organiser, course planner, controller and administrator. He was secretary of the ACT Orienteering Association during 1975-77, won a number of Championships in various veteran age classes and represented Australia against New Zealand. His death was a great loss to Orienteering and to his family, wife Judy and sons David, Andrew and Graham, who crafted the memento that is presented annually to the recipient of the award to remind us of the significant contribution that Mike made to Orienteering, and that others have made since his untimely death.
