Apologies to Olivia Coman who was given a bronze award when she should have had a silver! Please contact me to arrange to pass on Olivia’s silver certificate and the correct-coloured chocolate medal.
Anyone who was not at Templars last night can also contact me to arrange collection of their awards. I will bring them all to Craig Choinnich on Sunday.
Many thanks to Naomi and the Langs for a very entertaining (and dizzying) event at Templars Park including multiple loops and 3 visits to some controls including the one at the top of the Scouts’ scramble net!
The Easy course had a jigsaw novelty element to it and the Tech courses got a quiz with really hard questions unless you were an out and out orienteering nerd!! For every correct answer, a minute was knocked off your time so worth a punt for those of us without cheetah legs. (BTW I wish to lodge a protest about the marking of the quiz as I maintain that at least 6 of my answers were technically correct, just not necessarily the one the Langs had in mind!)Templars Park results and quiz answers added below and the final overall points.

Congratulations to all Award winners, but special mention must go to Ondrej Masek who took part in all 15 events. We think this must be an all-time record. Anyone who did not collect their certificate etc at Templars should contact Anne Hickling to pick them up. She will bring them to the autumn sprint events on the next few Wednesdays.
