Royal Deeside 2017

Day 3 Tuesday 1st August Birsemore.

Day 3 is ‘our’ day shared with ELO, TINTO and STAG.

David Esson, Gareth and Murray have been busy planning courses and showed the team leaders around a rather chilly but scenic Birsemore on Saturday.

As you know it takes a lot of manpower to make sure the event runs smoothly.  It is hoped that as many Gramp members as possible will offer to help on the day, if you are not attending the event but would still like to help you will be very welcome.  Help is required for parking, starts, arena (including IT), string course.

Please contact Helen on sh.and’at’gmx.com with offers of help, if you have a particular preference just let me know.

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.
