River Dart Country Park

A brief pause during an excellent run on Orange for a QO runner

Day out in Devon

Do event bases get any better? Beautiful grounds with all the facilities you could want in a compact area, on a sunny spring day. Seventeen made the trip and some of the QO results were as eye catching as the activity park's vibrant riverside attractions.

Review

Tom Hasler planned some interesting courses, the highlight being the Fox exercise using an Underground-style diagram for the map. Thanks to everyone who helped collect in controls, it was good to see so many children helping!

JOG at Wind Down

Tent safely secured, Wind Down registration opens

Another weather warning….another JOG pending!
