Scottish Night Champs 2020

Congratulations to those Gramps who travelled up to take part in the Scottish Night Champs held at Findhorn last weekend.
Looks like an intriguing mix of urban/forest/dunes judging from RouteGadget so it’ll be interesting to hear what they thought of it.
Did it encourage a few more folk to have a go than would do if it were all forest I wonder?

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.
