Junior Inter Regional Championships 2016

Individual – Cambus O’May – Sat 24th September
Relay – Forvie – Sun 25th September

Gramp are proud to be joint hosts with Maroc for this year’s JIRCs which will see squads from all over the UK jetting in to compete and socialise with old friends and rivals alike. Competitors will be staying at Cults Academy and buses laid on to ferry them up Deeside for the Individual day and then even further north to Forvie for the Relays.

Initial invitations and details have already been sent round all the squads and preparations are starting to really ramp up now.

Iain McLeod is the JIRC Coordinator this year heavily involved in organising the accomodation and support side of things, George and David Esson are controlling the Individual event and Adrian Will is Organiser for the Relays and will be looking for volunteers very soon to help ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.  He’ll need plenty of hands for things like helping direct traffic and marshal the crowds of eager Juniors in the Start pen so why not contact him to offer your services now?

Helpers will get a chance to enjoy Forvie after the Relays have finished but with a limited range of courses TBC.

TICK AWARENESS AND TREE DISEASES

green_tick_symbolTicks (no not this kind, the bad kind) just love to move in on unsuspecting orienteers. Here's a brief guide on what to look for and how to remove the wee critters.
Scotland is still suffering outbreaks of tree diseases and we can do our bit to help stop the spread and also continue good working relationships with landowners whose land we use by following the guidelines given here.
