GJO success @ World School Orienteering Championships 2018

Three Gramp juniors had an enjoyable day at the Scottish Schools selection races for the World Schools Orienteering Championships which were held on Sunday at Faskally, near Pitlochry. Patrick Lang, Rory Halliday and Sam Griffin were representing Aberdeen Grammar and came a close second to George Watsons School in the team competition placing 9th, 8th and 3rd respectively. Sam’s result ensured him selection into the Scottish Schools select team who will travel to the World Schools Orienteering Championships in Estonia next April. Well done Sam!

Several MAROC juniors have also qualified and Sam is teaming up with them to joint fundraise for their trip. The first fund raising event will be on Sunday at MAROC’s event on Pannanich where they will be selling the usual hot drinks, soup, cakes…. and if there is a big enough entry, chilli (meat and veggie). So if you haven’t got your entry in yet please do so, and bring your pennies, or preferably pounds, on the day.
