Autumn Urban Sprints – Westhill 31/8/16

A chance to visit some of the bits of Westhill you never knew existed (unless you did the SOUL there last month but even then there’ll be new ground).

Park in the Westhill swimming pool carpark and look for the Gramp banner/white Yeti with a crowd of folk for registration. Map

Reg 18:00 – 18:45ish, last start 19:00, £3 Senior, £1 Junior/Student

Don’t forget that although under 16’s should be accompanied by an adult for insurance reasons we will have a pairs/shadowed category to give you a fair competition. Challenge your GJO mates now!

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.
