DVO success at WMOC 2015

wmoc2015-ddDVO had their first success at the World Masters Orienteering Championships on Monday 27th July with Doug Dickinson claiming a Bronze medal in the Sprint Final in the M70 class.

His podium place also provided the first public modelling of the new DVO warm up jacket (courtesy of Mike Godfree – see post further down page) – the Union Flag that Doug is draped in was supplied by fellow Brit, Nick Barrable.

Club Development Plan

 More People, More Places, More Podiums.
What do we want DVO to do?
Please take a look at the review document of our Club’s Development Plan – we need to keep our club active and vibrant.
So I would like to hear or read your comments on the things we are doing right and also those areas where we might change a little and try something new.
The timescale for feedback is by the end of September 2015, so I can summarise the ideas and comments for the AGM in October.
You can talk to me (Scottish 6-day), email me (, phone me (01773 856824 before 9pm) or write me a letter (The Homestead, Whatstandwell, DE4 5EH).
