First round results
League Positions after 1 round:
It was a real blast of winter at Haytor on 12th November at Haytor but the first event of the Devon Moorland league table got off to a great start, especially for the juniors.
Successes at the November Classic!
The New Forest looking stunning in the sunshine. Highland Water provided a real technical challenge, and some very wet boggy bits! Congratulations to all the Devon members who competed - it was great to see Devon so well represented at the event. There were some strong performances by club members, and we were on the podium in several classes. We even had a clear sweep in the M18 class - well done lads!
You feel the time has come to have a go at organising an event, but you are not sure? You have organised an event before, but would like a refresher? Then please join us for this two hour course on Wednesday 22nd November 7.00pm -9.00pm at Ilsington Village Hall.
For details see: http://www.devonorienteering.co.uk/events -and don't forget to let Andy Reynolds know that you will be attending.
(One of the features which Sue Hateley included on a regular basis within the Club Newsletter was the “Chairman’s Chat”. I hope to keep this going through the club website and MailChimp.)
We are now one week away from the CompassSport Cup and Trophy Finals, being held, of course, on Roborough Down, near Plymouth on Sunday 22nd October and being hosted, to my knowledge, by Devon OC for the first time, together with significant support from Cornwall Orienteering Club.
Devon plays it's part!
England won all three home internationals this autumn – Vet (in Scotland), Senior (in Northern Ireland) and Junior (in Wales).
