Re – Derbyshire Schools and Youth Groups
County Championships.
Shipley Park Saturday July 11th 2015

Do you know of or have contact with teachers /leaders in Schools and/or Youth Groups who you can encourage to enter teams, or send individuals to these championships?

If the answer is yes then please print off the flyer from the club website and encourage them to enter.

Young people are the future for your club.

5th and 6th September 2015 DVO training in the Lake District

Early notice of an excellent opportunity for training on superb terain and good preparation before the Compass Sport Cup final in October.

Training will be on an intricate area in the eastern Lakes aimed at improving navigational skills for Orange to Brown standard orienteers.

With a handy Level B event (NW of Penrith) on the Sunday.

More details to follow but early names to Ann-Marie Duckworth () would help to gauge interest.
