Balmoral races

The Balmoral 15 mile race on Sunday was an invasion of orienteers. The route was Balmoral to Invercauld bridge and back via Glen Gelder and the lower slopes of Lochnagar (a few hills then). Robbie Siimspon sometime LAMM partner of Oleg Chepelin came first in 1.21, with Murray Strain and Oleg taking 2nd and 3rd. Carolyn McLeod was first Female Vet in 1.42. There were a few other orienteers in the pack including Sam G who finished in 2.01 as 9th Super Vet. The only drawback of the day with superb weather was having to miss the orienteering at Balnagowan. Oleg tried to pursuade Murray to dash across for a late entry at Balnagowan (since they were all done before 12:30), but they decided to hang around for prizegiving. Sam
