& League Table 1
Comments for Devon League Event 1: Haldon Forest The first event of this year's Devon League proved popular with suitably technical courses well planned to stretch the field and get people into the Autumn orienteering season. The next league event will be a moorland run around Whitchurch Common, which is also a South West orienteering league. See you there. Tim Gent
