A qualified coach will be available at these events to assist and set people off and check them back in.
Without any organisation DVO won today’s Robin Hood Trophy at Clumber. Congratulations to all scorers, see the list here. Is this a first?

A big thank you to everyone who turned out for the club on a glorious spring-like day. A fine photo of DVO’s new club tent here.

The first Open meeting of 2014 is on Wednesday 8th January at the usual place – the Bell Inn, Cromford, DE4 3RF.
The meeting starts around 8:15pm and there is a non-compulsory run at 7pm for those who wish to take in a few miles.
This meeting will largely be considering the development of the club. It is a while since we specifically considered how we should take the club forward and this meeting will look at that with the input of the members. If you are unable to attend and have some ideas that you would like to put forward then please let Ann-Marie know.
Should be an exciting session. All members are most welcome and indeed encouraged to attend.
Results here. Routegadget here. Winsplits here. A couple of people have queried the results versus their finish order. The two finish boxes were synchronized and everyone has a timed start of 11:02:44 but the road crossing is timed out up to 1 minute between 117 & 124 so take longer on the crossing and you can finish behind someone but still beat them overall. The splits should make it clear.

A truly smashing night. Excellent catering and organisation, as always, provided by Val, Sarah and team – many thanks to all and to those who helped clear up at the end – which was probably everyone I think.
For those of you who could not attend the awards were presented as follows:
Orienteer of the Year – Jointly to Liz Godfree for many excellent orienteering results in the year, and to David Parkin, also for excellent orienteering results in the year.
Junior Orienteer of the Year – Sarah Duckworth, again, for excellent orienteering results in the year. This was a close competition – also nominated were, Rachel Duckworth, Louis Forshaw-Perring, Nicola Northcott, Joanna Goodhead and Elizabeth Bedwell.
Most Improved Orienteer of the Year – Jon Cundill excellent result at the Club Championships.
Most Enthusiastic Newcomer – Ned Needham - Ned has become an enthusiastic Committee Member, has very much embraced coaching and has brought a large number of his students as helpers to recent events.
Newstrack Reporter of the Year – Another category where we have joint winners – Dave Nevell for his excellent puzzles and articles that have entertained many of us and The Compiler of ‘When Sunday Comes’ - The Compiler has maintained a cloak of anonymity as such it is difficult to make the award to him or to her.
Sports Personality of the Year – John Cooke – a very amusing story – you had to be there to hear it though!
Congratulations to all winners and nominees.
