Funeral & gathering
With great sadness we learned, as all members will have by now, that Sue died recently (18 April).
Sue's funeral is this Thursday (9 May) and arrangements are detailed further below, together with a piece written by Mike Crockett.
In the Peak District
Mike Crockett has provided the following details of the memorial service for former QO chairman David Parkin on Saturday 6 April in Derbyshire, for any QO members interested in attending.
join up or renew for 2019
A condition of entry to any orienteering event is that you join a recognised orienteering club, after your first three runs. Our event insurance cover depends on this. Please remember your club membership is for calendar years, not orienteering seasons and renew if you haven't done so already.
It is with sadness we announce the death of Dave on 3 February.
One of the club's earliest members, Dave soon became chairman and a long-serving one at that. His son Richard described orienteers as being his father's extended family.
Andrew to assist Bob
The committee are pleased to announce that our long-standing permissions officer Bob Lloyd now has an understudy, Andrew Hopkins. Andrew will take over from Bob after the AGM, when Bob retires.
We're used to events being rained off, but held so soon after the ancient city's worst floods in a decade, it seems amazing this race actually went ahead! Tony Hext celebrated a big birthday in style there.
