Swadlincote – Saturday 7 May 2022


Dry at our 2018 Swadlincote Woods event

Swadlincote Woods Local Event

Level: D (Local)

Thanks to everyone for helping. A good team of knowledgeable DVO members ensured that the day went smoothly.

Some positive comments from many of the competitors. Several asked for details of future events, so Sal’s DVO Events flyers soon disappeared.

Note that the Score course has a separate Routegadget display.

Darren’s blend of simpler linear courses and the Junior Score, plus the Norwegian Map Memory Challenge, proved popular with 12 runs on the Short Course, 18 Medium, 7 Junior Score and 13 Map Memory.

Good to see several young families giving Orienteering a go.
