Today's Maprun meet at Holne Moor (23.8.20) was notable as being Alan Simpson's last appearance before leaving for Yorkshire. We took the opportunity to mark the occasion by presenting him with Life Membership of the Club, plus a present to remind him of Devon- a jigsaw of the former Smallhanger Waste map (one of many that former Club Member Noel Gould used to make).
Those present took advantage of the lovely weather to have a socially distanced picnic in the car park.
Thanks to Steve for organising the Maprun. Although some of us had technical problems, it was wonderful to be able to get out and orienteer again, especially on a technical area of Dartmoor.
Thursday 23rd May
