Apologies for the delay (folk working abroad or otherwise engaged) final rankings now calculated:
Rankings incl 5 Wed eve events + SOUL     

Big thanks to all our organisers and everyone who came and ran too. Need both to make a series!
Many folk commented on the friendly nature of our series, despite the intense competition between old rivals again this year, and the addition of cakes and a few more juniors taking part all helped to add to the atmosphere. Hope you enjoyed it and will be back for more on Feb 22nd (spoiler alert – we’re putting on an event in Cove prior to the British Night Champs at Dinnet.)

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.
