One of the things that, as a club, we are keen to do is further develop a strong identity and a sense of Devon Orienteering Club. How do we go about it?

Bulletin No. 9
Matt Atkins is now producing the club's Mailchimp Bulletins and sent out the latest one on November 1st. If you have not received it, please check your spam, as it originated from a new email address. (Devon Orienteering Club <>) It includes lots of club information, so do track it down!
The club development plan highlights the priority activities for the Club over the period 2018-21 in order to ‘encourage and promote the sport of orienteering in Devon’. The plan is discussed regularly by the Committee, as is the Club’s strategic direction and financial status in relation to the success of activities during the year, planned future events and any National or Regional organisation priorities.
If you would like to discuss any elements of the Development Plan, please contact either Bryan Smith () or Rob Parkinson ()
