Scotland won the Boys JHI Relay by 2 seconds this weekend!
Congrats to James Hammond, Laurence Ward, Sam Griffin running in Team Scotland 1 and all the rest of the ScotJos crew on some other great performances too.
Individual results from the day before
I try to keep an up to date list of upcoming events for Gramp and neighbouring clubs* on the right hand side of this webpage but if viewing on a mobile it’s not immediately obvious it’s there. So I’ve left two links in the menu system under ‘Events/Results’ for the SOA Events Calendar and the BOF Event Finder which is searchable by placename or postcode and shows events 1, 2, 3…. weeks away with coloured pins in a map.
*For newcomers it might help to know which club is based where and covers what:
Gramp = Aberdeen and bits of the Shire surrounding
Maroc = Deeside north and south from Banchory to Braemar
Moravian = Moray coast and inland
Basoc = Kingussie to Grantown and areas close to Spey nearby
Invoc = Nairn to Inverness and beyond!
Mobile users – any more suggestions to improve your browsing experience gratefully received by email@example.com please.
Here are the results from todays event at Balmedie Beach.
Many thanks to all the Gramp helpers and in particular to Zoe Griffin ably assisted by Tim (Planner), Sarah Dunn (Controller), and Sam & Lesley Gomersall. (Organisers)

Information, Rules and Kit List (updated 8/10/21)
You’ll see we’ve rebranded ever so slightly to acknowledge the year’s delay but other than that (fingers crossed please people) it’s shaping up for another great weekend of friendly rivalry and fun.
GMC HQ will be based at Crathie Hall on the north side of the River Dee, opposite Balmoral, where we’ll register you early on Saturday morning and take your kit bags for transportation to the overnight campsite while you do the easy bit yomping through some spectacular scenery to join us.
There will definitely be portaloos at the campsite but no genny so bring extra torch power.
Then the whole process reverses on Sunday via some different but equally spectacular scenery to get back to Crathie Hall. Although there are prizes up for grabs we probably won’t be allowed to have a prize-giving inside and it’s too much to expect a heatwave that time of year so we’ll have to think of a different way this year – apres-GMC Zoom Party anyone?
