Caddihoe Chase 23Report from the Forest of Dean
Devon Orienteers competed at Mallard's Pike in the Caddihoe weekend. Notable results below, plus Ben's report on the VHI and his success.
The weekend also incorporated the Veterans Home International (VHI) race, the South West Long Distance Championships, the RAF Orienteering Championships, and an Interland selection race for English M/W14-18 runners. NGOC had certainly taken on a lot!Well done to NGOC for putting on a great weekend, and reverting to the traditional Chase system, which requires a lot of manpower, but which seemed to go down well. They had to contend with forestry work discovered the day before, but coped well (see Ben's report).
Next year Devon will be taking back the hosting of the weekend (Braunton Burrows in 2024).

1st Ben Perry M18 (also SW Champion, D1)
