World Orienteering Day – 23rd May 2018

World Orienteering Day – an excellent success!

With over 350 children during the two school sessions and a handful of adults at the evening event, we hosted DVO’s third World Orienteering Day on Wednesday 23rd May 2018.

The score course, planned by Rachel Duckworth (DVO and Anthony Gell School pupil) took participants all over the beautiful Victorian Whitworth Park, north of Matlock.

With the near perfect dry and warm weather some very good times were recorded for collecting all 20 controls: two pairs recorded under 10 mins – Bonsal and Youlgrave schools. Well done because Rachel (the course Planner) took 7.30 mins.

But by far the most popular activity was the maze – everyone had a go!

That included children coming back in the evening to have another go with the parents and a retired resident of Matlock who had only come to the Park for a walk and an ice cream.

See you at one of the DVO Matlock local events this summer.
