bto SOUL 5 Westhill 25/6/16

Bad luck those of you who got caught in one of the downpours. I’ve never appreciated before just how loud the sound of rain stotting off your map can be.

On the plus side, we had possibly the swankiest assembly area ever for a SOUL so far? So nice to be able to come back into the warm and dry and not have to peel off wet O gear in a steamy, cramped car so many thanks to Technip UK Ltd for the loan of their restaurant area.

Routegadget (can someone who went to 229 tell me whether it’s really a smiley face on the ground or is it mappers artistic licence?)
BOF results with ranking points

Thanks too to Adrian Will for organising and swinging it with Technip, Helen Rowlands for stepping in for last minute Controller duties piggy-backing on all the hard work done by Tim Griffin, Pete Lawrence for some audaciously long legs, Keith Roberts of Maroc for Wifi and other computing assistance on the day and last but not least the Gramp helpers, particularly those who didn’t run themselves but volunteered to spend a wet and often boring day helping anyway (Duncan, Bob, Caffyns and Alastair: this means you!)

We got some good feedback on the new map and will be forwarding it to the mapper, Sasha Chepelin. Hope you enjoyed the chance to be guinea pigs with us (or is it more like lab rats?) and have fun tomorrow at Glen Feardar.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
