JIAR and Interclub Relay 2014

Congratulations to the North Team, including GJOs Naomi Lang, Patrick Lang, Ailsa Anderson, Keith Yardley & Alex Lang, on their comprehensive victory at this year’s Junior Inter-Area Relays held on a complicated little area close to the Falkirk Wheel. North won with 145 points, West 117, East 76. I’m told that Stirling YH survived a mass invasion by the North Team but haven’t heard whether there was a repeat performance of the marshmallow tower contest success.

Naomi then went on to run again in the Inter Club Team Relay helping GO Gramp achieve 4th place against some talent packed teams from ESOC, FVO and INT. Sadly we should really be marked as non-comp as we never did find an eighth runner from Gramp despite our Team Captain’s stirling efforts to find someone (thanks for doing the honours, Evgueni, as well as driving for the JIAR crowd.) Instead we co-opted Martin Wilson of BKO who did us proud on the last leg but the rest of us deserve a pat on the back too for managing to avoid the mini mass start and not mispunch. There’s 7/8 makings of a good Gramp team already – maybe, just maybe, next year….?

Update – Some great photos from Pat Graham (Maroc Mum) here – everything from agonising waits in the pen to action-packed handovers.
