National Osteoporosis Society
It is now just over a year since the horrendous accident that took the lives of four young people when they were caught in an avalanche in Glencoe, Scotland, on 19th January 2013. Many people may remember that one of those killed was former Devon Orienteering Club member Tom Chesters, son of current club members Ruth and John, and brother of Ben, who runs for Sarum, but regularly attends Devon Orienteering Club events.

Dear Club Members
I will be ordering another batch of tops from Trimtex within the next couple of weeks. Does anyone want to be included on this order? Sizes and an order form are on the Club website and below or you can e-mail me direct.
Following the final event of the season at East Hill on 9th June, the results for the Devon League are now available.
It is great to see that approximately 500+ individuals (or pairs or family groups in some cases) took part over the season on at least one course or another.
Final 7th July 2013: Grantham, Lincs
Well done to all the Juniors who ran for Devon at the finals of the Yvette Baker competition at Grantham over the weekend. With the largest team there of 32 runners they excelled in the heat, and was it hot, taking the runners up position just two points behind the winners. Bearing in mind our "second team" were in eighth place that showed our strength in depth and it looks very good for the future.
