Standing on the shoulders of (future) giants

Despite the tough tussocky terrain on the first half of the courses, Team HalfGramp managed 6th place in the 8 Person category of this year’s Interclub Relay but we have to come clean and admit that this was only achieved by cunningly taking up organiser Jess’ offer to hire us some SEDS members to make up the GRAMP shortfall. For an additional contribution to SEDS funds, we secured the services of Alison Campbell to start us off on the Tartan leg to psyche out the opposition with a flying start, Jo Shepherd for one of the Green legs and Ali McLeod for an Orange. I think it was when Ali came in that the other teams began to suspect but so far nobody has lodged a complaint and we’re still listed as competitive!

Thanks and congrats also to David Esson, Oonagh Grassie, Bob Daly, Pete Lawrence and Rachel Scott for being game for a laugh/run and abusing their legs by doing battle with those tussocks in advance of doing battle with the rain and wind at Ardchattan the following day, not to mention the Dementor Bog that sucked the sole out of Rachel’s shoe.
