JK 2019 - Devon runners enjoy the heat!

More than 60 club members attended the JK this year, and performed strongly, despite the heat!

  

Sue Gard

It is with great sadness that we heard that Sue Gard passed away on Maundy Thursday after a short illness. Sue was a keen orienteer, and had been an active member of Devon Orienteering Club in the 1980s and 1990s. She actively supported Junior orienteering, and supported the South West squad at National Events. More recently she had moved to Somerset and continued to run with Quantocks Orienteers.  Sue was very gently spoken, and always enjoyed a chat before or after a run.  She was often accompanied by her collie. Our thoughts are with Bill and the family at this sad time.

CompassSport Cup Heats

Sunday 17th March Quantocks

Great Devon turn-out for the Compass Sport Cup Qualifier!

Ruth Chesters, our Club captain, writes...

Well done, and thank you, to the 55 Devon members who took part in the Compass Sport Cup Qualifier. It was an excellent team performance which enabled us to give Bristol Orienteering Klub some serious competition. We were only 43 points adrift of the team that finished third in last year’s final, and were winners of the Compass Sport Cup in 2017!

The competition rules allow for an extra final place to be available in any qualifier in which one of last year’s top three take part. This means that, by coming a close second to BOK, Devon has also reached the 2019 final.  Therefore, fellow Devon members, please put October 20th 2019 in your diary. It would be great to have as many of you as possible representing your club in the Compass Sport Cup Final, at Pippingford Park, East Sussex.

Let’s aim to improve on the 9th place that Devon achieved in 2018. More details of the final will be coming soon.
