Ilkeston Urban Event 1st January 2015

Next event is the Urban Event in Ilkeston on New Year’s Day.  Details here, note that although it is a mass start at 11:00 it is not a score event – 3 conventional courses, short, medium and long.  Registration from 10:30. The mass start is merely to reduce the manpower required.  From past experience by the time you get to the first control the pack will be well split up.

Saturday 13th December

DVO has two events on one day.

1.00-3.00pm come to Oker Hill for a Matlock O activity session with courses focusing on reading contours.

Later in the day go to Rosliston Forestry centre for a Night O event

Mike’s eNews – 5 December 2014

Please see below for the lastest eNews from Mike Hamilton of British Orienteering.

Firstly, I was horrified to realise it has been so long since the last eNews. My apologies but the time has gone really quickly, probably due in part to the National Office relocation and me trying to pick up the outstanding work from the Talent & Performance programme on Sarah Hague’s departure.

New Year Activities

As well as the DVO Urban Event at Ilkeston on New Year’s Day (details to follow) two other events early in the New Year may be of interest. MDOC are putting on the ‘John o’Goats’ Charity Event at Lyme Park on Saturday 3rd January. The following day Ian Kevan of Ultrasport is running their Annual Macmillan Cancer January Jog.


Just a note to say that EMEWS 252 has been published and I have attempted to mail it to all but have had many problems in attempting to do so.  10Mb file and 150 recipients.

I suggest you have a look at the EMOA website to down load a copy if it has not come through on email.   It was not actually posted when I looked but I presume it will be soon.

The AGM … or ‘Post Club Champs Blues Cure All’

So we have had the Club Champs on an excellent new area (many thanks Richard and all involved) followed by the Club Dinner and Awards (also many thanks to all involved) … the excitement levels must now be fit to burst.  Well to maintain the momentum we have the eagerly awaited AGM …

All club members are warmly encouraged to attend to deal with the business of the day and to vote in your new elected officials.

There will also be a training run from the Bell at 7pm

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
