Pre Event Information

Organiser's Comments

A beautiful winter's day with another good turnout. Plenty of club orienteers mixed in with juniors and a few new faces. I hope those new to orienteering try out the league events on the Devon club website.

Thankyou to Adrian for planning some great courses and the night events went down very well with orienteers and Hashers alike. Thanks to all my many helpers and a big thankyou to Roger Green for controlling this event. See you all at the next event.

Course Information

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
