Spread the Word!
Our Summer Series of events will be taking place between June and August. Results of the first, very successful event at Knightshayes on Sunday 10th June are now available. We are working hard to get a good turnout of newcomers and returners to the sport as well as current club members. So, please do what you can to spread the word, invite friends and get along yourself!
Devon and Cornwall Winners!
Very well done to all of the Devon and Cornwall members who are now South West Middle Distance Champions, as a result of the championships held on 28th May at Braunton Burrows.
One Hour Score Events
This year the club is offering a few other events to see whether there is a demand and interest in something different. Our first offerings are informal street O races which are 1 hour score events.
Using simple street maps based on OpenStreetMapping ( http://www.oomap.co.uk) with controls being street furniture such as lamp posts , hydrants, signs etc. A mapping example is here.
Results of the first two events, held in Exmouth and Exeter, are now available. Next up it's Kingsteignton on Tuesday 19th June.

I am very sorry to inform all club members of the particularly sad news that Graham Dugdale, M65, passed away last weekend. This will come as a huge and unexpected shock to all of those within the club who knew Graham.
Arrangements: The funeral service for Graham will take place at Holy Cross Church, Parson’s Hill, Whitwick, Coalville, near Ashby-de-la-Zouch on Thursday 31st May at 12.30. Details can be seen here: Funeral Arrangements
Please also note that the family are hoping to have a get together in Devon for Graham's friends, perhaps in Chudleigh, at some stage following the funeral. When further details are known, they will be posted on this website.
