South West Orienteering Association
The SWOA regional newsletter was called SINS, used to be published monthly in paper copy, and was distributed by the editor at orienteering events to club secretaries. (The name is an abbreviation for Southern Independent News Sheet. In the early days of orienteering this title distinguished it from the national magazine.) The views expressed in SINS are not necessarily those of the editor, or the official view of SWOA.
SINS has had several editors over the years; the final editor for the paper copy was Susan Hateley DEVON in 2016. Christine Vince took it online during a term of office as chairman but it lapsed in December 2019 (due to coronavirus). It keeps a useful record of some of SWOA’s exploits and it would be a shame if it lapsed permanently.
No December SINS – the editor has been laid up since the end of November. A Happy Christmas to you all.
