GB Talent Squad - Update
The Club might like to know what Flurry has been up to since being selected for the GB Talent Squad last year.
What do members want from the club? That may sound a relatively straightforward question; regular events, fairly close to where members live, not too expensive. Is this an accurate summary?
Devon's turn to provide the photographs!
SWOA has a new website -and has asked each club to provide photographs, one month at a time. It is now Devon's turn and, thanks to Mark Lockett, you can see the results at: sworienteeringassociation.co.uk
The photographs are from the CompassSport Cup Final held at Virtuous Lady in October 2017, and the January 2018 Five Tors event.

Forest of Dean 19th November 2017
Well done to Torquay Boys' Grammar school runners who excelled at the British Schools' Championships in the Forest of Dean on 19th November. Despite a lack of girl runners they were placed 3rd overall equalling last year's results and dominated most of the boys' age groups as detailed below.
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!
