(It’s not often I get to put my own name up in lights so I’m going to enjoy this while it lasts….!)
Congrats to Helen Rowlands and Rachel Scott for winning 1st and 2nd Female in this year’s Mini Deeside Night Cup (aka the Short course). Chocolatey prizes featured largely and also vouchers from Field & Trek in Aboyne so thanks to them for their support for the DNC this year.
Lots of other Gramp DNC regulars took part and good to see a couple of our Juniors, Lachlan Kirk and Paul Caffyn, taking on the challenge and no doubt you’ll see the results in their day time orienteering this year as it seems to be what really boosts the Maroc Juniors’ performance.
At the curry and prize giving, Jon M mentioned that maybe next season we might try putting on an Orange course for Juniors and beginners to try and boost the DNC numbers as they seem to have stayed around the 30+ runners/event mark for quite a while now. MOR have put on a few more lowkey night O events recently which have proved very popular with families and beginners so the precedent has been set.
What do you think – would you be tempted to come out and enjoy the fun if there was an Orange on offer?
