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.

Graham Dugdale

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.

As well as planning for the forthcoming Tamar Triple (26th  -28th May), the club is gearing up for the Summer Series of events, taking place between June and August.

Results are now posted.  Andy Reynolds (our controller) picked up a couple of ticks in the forest yesterday, so suggested that everyone has a good check of all those little nooks and crannies where ticks can hide!
