South-West and Devon League Event No. 1
This is a South-West League (Galoppen) and Devon League event.
Results: Many thanks to John Whittingham (WIM) for significant technical help on the day, when the operating system failed on the master event laptop. Splits are now also available.
Organiser's Comments: What a great day out with the Devon Orienteering Club! The weather held off and many helpers turned out to give a hand for which I am very grateful. We saw a few faces that have not been out for a while. I hope they can continue to come out to enjoy other Devon events. A good show was put on by the juniors including a cake stall to raise funds. Nicholas (Planner) and Peter (Controller) provided good, technical, courses including use of the mine workings in the Virtuous Lady area.
I hope everyone had a good run and will come out next week to enjoy the event at Killerton. Remember to bring your dibbers to get discounted entry from the National Trust . Please see the Devon orienteering website for the latest details. See you at the next event. Tim Gent

Lake District 27th & 28th September 2014
A large group of Devon Juniors recently represented the south-west at the Inter Regional Orienteering Championships in The Lake District. Students from Colyton Grammar School, The Kings School and Sidmouth College were part of the SW Junior Orienteering Squad. You can read more of their impressive report here together with some great photographs....
First League Event: 19.10.14
The Devon Orienteering League aims to present regular and gently competitive orienteering to club members (Devon and non-Devon) and newcomers. All competitors are automatically registered at the time of their first run during the season.
Certificates will be awarded at the end of the season for the first male and first female competitor on each course. On the Yellow and Orange courses, only junior competitor scores qualify.
Congratulations to the Junior members from Torquay Boys Grammar School who retained their national titles at the British Schools' Score Championships at Redditch! A great result.
