After training well at our JOG at Culm Davy, a happy hunting ground for him previously, Devon's Patrick Devine-Wright went on to record the fastest time at the Devon League event the next day. A round up of the action from the weekend of January 28/29th

Patrick's appearance at Culm Davy in 2013 saw him record not only a 3rd place finish on Green but a follow up run on Blue. He did even better on Blue and was faster than anyone else, albeit non-competitive as it was his second run that day. Patrick seems to specialise in these non competitive "wins". He ran the Brown course at Devon's league event at Ashclyst Forest the day after his appearance at JOG and finished first, again a non-scoring run, after buddying up with another runner.

That event, 20 miles south of Culm Davy, attracted six QO members and was planned by QO member Will Kromhout. One particularly good QO performance was that of Steve Roberston, who came fourth on the Blue course. Pete Shirvington also deserves a mention for shuttling up and down the M5 several times and managing to attend all three local events that were on offer in a very busy 24 hour period. The other event being our latest 'QOADS' evening score (see events page- click here).

Tom Hasler has compiled a rather nice quiz on control descriptions. It's well worth a try if you haven't done so already. Answer too, below.

Competitor safety

Following some adverse comments from competitors who found filling in all the details a chore we have hopefully now produced a more streamlined version. The details which must be filled in enable us to run the event and look after your safety by having details of next of kin, vehicle registration and relevant medical information.

Only those who hire an SI card or who are not BOF members then need to go on to give contact details as these will obviously not be on the BOF database. We have a legal requirement to be able to contact all participants otherwise event insurance is not valid or may need to do so if a hired SI card was not handed in.
