CompassSport Cup Competition

Sunday March 15th at Fixby + Bradley

Thanks to everyone who has already entered but we still need lots more entries.

The area is 2 miles from Brighouse and 3 miles from Huddersfield.Google map gives around 1.5 hours from Matlock to Brighouse. Although it is a little further than we would have chosen, I hope as many of you as possible will feel able to enter. We will be competing against AIRE, SYO,DEE, EBOR and CLOK. If SYO wins 2 teams will go through to the finals.To have a good chance of making it through to the final we will need a really good turn out from the club. . Remember every runner will help to make us more successful.Some members may find themselves having to run longer or shorter courses than usual, but we can only maximise our chances of doing well if we put out a team as strong as possible across as wide a range as possible. Everyone can play their part, your club needs YOU.

There has been some discussion of arranging a bus and if you would be interested in this could you let me know.I will circulate more details of the event when I have them.

Entry is open to all DVO members who will only have to pay 50% of the entry. All entries will be submitted by me ( the Club captain). A single block fee will be transferred to EPOC on behalf of all members and I will send you details of how to pay the 50%

If you wish to take part, please let me know as soon as possible:
( please note new email address) Please send details of your age category , SI and BOF number.

If you have any specific needs with regards to start times, then please let me know

DVO Event Officials’ Development Session

Tuesday 24th March, 19.00 – 21.30, Family Tree, Whatstandwell

In September 2015 we held a Development Session, primarily for Planners and Controllers. From this I developed a number of reminders for Event Officials, which were subsequently published in Newstrack (November 2015).

We now feel it’s time to hold another session and this time, as well as Planners and Controllers, to involve Organisers, Mappers and anyone else who has an interest in improving the quality of our events and experiences of the competitors.

Participants are encouraged to bring along a particularly good leg from recent events and issues they have encountered from their own planning, controlling, mapping and organising. This includes aspects related to completing the Risk Assessment and taking mitigating actions.

Mike Godfree will also do a short session on PurplePen as everyone needs to use it in one way or another.

If you would like to attend, please let me know by Tuesday 17th March. Similarly, if you have ideas for topics we should address, let me know by the same date.
