Last chance to enter!
There are 3 days of quality orienteering coming up for the Jubilee Weekend: one in Devon and two just over the border in Cornwall. Note that the closing date is this Friday (in time to gauge numbers for printing maps). I’m not aware there will be any entry on the day, so this will be your last chance to enter.

Selection for the Junior European Cup!
Congratulations to Tom Perry, who has been selected to represent Great Britain in the 2022 Junior European Cup, which is being held in Blankenburg, Germany, 1st – 3rd October, 2022. Best of luck to Tom; we look forward to hearing more in due course.
Selected for Championships!
Flurry Grierson, M20, Devon, has been selected for GB in the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Portugal in July. (He was selected for the last two years but COVID stopped those races.) Flurry is currently ranked 28 overall in the UK and second M20.
He has also been selected for the World University Orienteering Championships in Switzerland in August. This is a GB team of the best 2 males and 2 females from all UK universities in the sprint relays and middle champs. There is a good chance of a podium place for GB....watch this space!
Impressive Devon turn out and results!
Fifty five Devon members made the journey over the Severn to South Wales for the 2022 JK Festival of Orienteering. Everyone was rewarded with fantastic weather, great competition and first class terrain. There were also some notable Devon achievements, listed below, together with a few photogaphs which capture some of the flavour of the event. Well done to all club members who took part and particular congratulations to those on the podium!
Permanent Orienteering Course
The permanent orienteering course at Plymouth Central Park has been updated! This is as a result of a partnership between Plymouth City Council, Argyle Community Trust and Devon Orienteering Club.
Why not give it a go! For details see below.
British Orienteering have informed Devon OC that they have extended the deadline for renewals from 31st March to 30th April 2022. Further information below.
