DVO Through to the Compass Sport Cup Final

DVO have qualified for the Final by beating CLOK, quite convincingly in the end. The final scores for the Club Competition were SYO: 2438, DVO: 2418, CLOK: 2309, so we even had the mighty SYO sweating a bit at the end. We go through to the final by virtue of coming second to SYO who were in the top three at last year’s final. By any stretch, it was a magnificent effort by every DVO runner and you should all give yourselves a collective pat on the back. See you all on Cannock Chase in October.

Yvette Baker Trophy update

BIG NEWS – DVO Juniors are in the FINAL of the Yvette Baker Trophy 2018.

It might have looked like we came third at the Cademan event (LEI 25th February 2018) but in fact we came second!
Well done DVO Juniors.
Due to LEI and OD coming from two different regions and scoring the same, and LEI being at the YBT final last year, we also get a chance to run this year.

So we are off to Arrow Valley Country Park (Redditch) on Sunday 1st July.
The same rules apply – enjoy the competition because you run the course that fits your orienteering ability.
The last time we ran in the finals in 2016, it turned out to be a fun day out in the sun.

Yvette Baker Trophy

DVO juniors ran a hard race at the Yvette Baker Trophy heat held yesterday at the LEI event Cademan (Sun 25th Feb 2018). It was a “hard” area because the map was smothered in paths going every-which-way through the undergrowth, with added footpaths in the woods cut by the badgers and the herd of elephants

Event Cancelled Although main roads are clear, side roads and the area itself are not going to clear making it difficult to put the controls out and for people to get to and from the event safely.
