Coaching - Final Details 11th Jan. 2014

Report (and photographs below) from Rob Parkinson on Facebook: Great training day today - thanks Tess, Ben, Alan, Tom and helpers. Wonderful weather, and more than 40 keen Devon orienteers enjoying pacing, distance and bearing work, attack points, and much more.

Get your New Year resolution in early and make a start with some physical and technical training on one of Devon's better areas.  Even better now that the bracken has died down!!
