It's with the greatest sadness that Tayside Orienteers share the news that our friend and clubmate Dave Prentice died earlier this week whilst hiking in Uganda. Dave contributed hugely to the club over many years as mapper, event co-ordinator, planner, organiser, controller. His energy and enthusiasm were the drivers behind so many of our activities, from the Perth and Kinross Schools Championships to countless local, regional and national events, and his generosity in sharing ideas, skills and encouragement with other club members helped us grow collectively as a club.
Dave leaves a huge hole in our club, but also a legacy of a commitment to providing high quality and fun orienteering to people of all ages in Tayside and further afield. We'll miss him greatly, and our thoughts and sympathies are with his wife Liz, and children Roland, Rowena and Laura at this very sad time. Dave's funeral will take place on Monday February 9th at 3pm at Perth Crematorium.
