The club appreciates members volunteering to help put on events but unfortunately, for insurance purposes, all officials at orienteering events need to have completed an Event Safety Course by 1 January 2017. By ‘Officials’ the British Orienteering Federation means Organisers, Planners and Controllers.

As you may know, a group of Club Members form the DEVON OC "SI Team". Their particular task is to run the computers at all events using Sportident controls and dibbers, ie most events. I am very grateful for their committed and enthusiastic support.
Occasionally we have a Team Workshop, and one such is scheduled for 19.30 on Thursday 11th February at my house near Ashburton.

Repeat of training day that Royal Signals Regiment held here in Spring 2014. Aimed at experienced orienteers although morning activities are suitable for those with some experience. The afternoon session is a single downhill course. It is hoped many will stay on for the night event. We will find a place for refreshments between the training and the night event. Advance booking please. For details see: Events
