North Area were the overall winners of this years Junior Inter-Area Champs and Sam Griffin looks very pleased with the trophy and remarkably relaxed unlike the poor frozen runner photobombing in the background!
It was a very crisp couple of days at Scolty and Cambus O’May for Relays and Individuals where over 100 Juniors competed against each other.
North Area comprises Gramp and our neighbours BASOC, INVOC, MAROC and Moravian. West is CLYDE, FVO and AYROC and the East is the smallest squad with ESOC, ELO, INT, RR, KFO and TAY.
Full write up and another photo of the now infamous Esson pram can be found on the SOA website.
Lovely crisp night last night and you could follow footsteps in the frost across the grassy bits. No such easy ride in the forest though and the deceptively easy looking control picking section caught me out big time. Lesson (re)learned – be less ambitious at night.
Good to see AUOC out in force and having fun.
Thanks to Dennis McDonald for planning, David Esson for ‘puting and anyone who helped collect in controls.
The event is being used for the Scottish Junior Inter Areas Championships 2019 Individual and all Juniors are encouraged to enter their age class course which isn’t the same way that the (JD)2C system works, hence the conflict. So the 2019 (JD)2C standings have been calculated from the 8 events completed to date, ending with GRAMP’s Forvie event on 6th Oct.
Well done to all GJO’s who took part and especially to:
Joanna McDonald W8 1st
Emily Robertson W8 2nd
Thea McRae W8 3rd
Samantha McDonald W10 3rd
Morven Farquharson W14 1st
Kirsty Farquharson W14 1st
Isobel Anderson W16 2nd
Oli Robertson M10 2nd
Sam Griffin M16 1st
And good luck to all our North East Juniors at Cambus O’May!
