Junior Home International

DEVON Success!

Flurry Grierson, M14, DEVON, was the only south-west junior to be selected to represent England at the Junior Home International in Ireland this Autumn. Congratulations to Flurry on his performance. Here is his report:

"My trip to Northern Ireland with the England orienteering team was great fun with 2 days of hard navigation over military sand dunes. There were a selection of shooting ranges that made for a perfect Finish and Event Arena. On day 1 I finished 5th overall but 2nd for England. In the relays I came back first for England. Jeff Butt said that it was highly unusual to be selected at the bottom of my age category. On Saturday everyone took a trip out to the Giant's Causeway and we walked across the rope bridge stretching across two cliffs. A pod of dolphins swam past under a rainbow. That night we danced for 3 hours at the ceilidh. Overall it was great fun."
