Planner’s report Organiser’s report


Wow! That was a wild one, eh? Many thanks to everyone for all your kind comments regarding courses and organisation and congrats to the winners and also to those who found time to pause for a joke and a photo on the way round, helping us to prove our proud boast of being Scotland’s friendly sociable winter MM.
Photographic evidence here.
If anyone has any snaps they’d like to share, send a link or photos to webmaster@gramoc.com please.

This year’s GMC was brought to you by David Kirk (organiser), Ian Hamilton (planner) and Sam Gomersall (controller) with much appreciated permissions/help from Balmoral Estate, O neighbours Maroc Orienteering (forest map), Crathie Hall, Banchory & Other Scouts (marquee wrangling, kit transport, roving hill marshals, control collection) and numerous Gramps/family/friends who were the “cabin crew” looking after your safety and (relative) comfort helping with IT, braving gushing burns to place controls or ridiculous winds to collect them, humping bags, hanging banners and notices and tapes, driving vans, holding the emergency contact phone, boiling gallons of water and handing out mountains of cake, creating an impromptu marquee substitute, meeting & greeting & counting you all out and safely back in. We all had a great time too, in that type 2 way, and lovely to see the regular GMC faces again and meet some new ones too.
Here’s to the next time!
