Balmedie DNC – 17th Jan 2018 – Results

Another delightful night for orienteering … clear, moonless (fantastic views of the constellations), little wind … and even the open sand areas were frozen, so were very fast running.  If you weren’t there you missed a treat.

Here are Results and Split times.

Routegadget (with Splitsbrowser) is now loaded up – enter your trails (and trials!).

Thanks to John Lang for enjoyable courses, and I hope he warmed up quickly after freezing in the car!

Next week we’re at Balnagowan in Maroc-land.

  • Mystery - can you help?
    After persistent enquiries - my thanks to everyone who helped - I've located nearly all the missing SOA trophies. Two are proving elusive: the Scottish Championships W70 quaich (pictured) and the Scottish Night Championships W21 trophy (also a quaich - no photo available).
