SoSOL 5 and ESOA Club Championships

Although much of the forest has been opened up and the rhododrendons have been cleared, Saltoun was still a tough venue. Most people seemed to enjoy the challenge and the glorious late autumn weather helped.
For the first time since 2010, clubs in the East area competed for the ELO-phant trophy which was retained by ESOC with INT 2nd and RR 3rd.

The Hirsel was a new area for orienteering outside Coldstream and offered a mixture of steep slopes, mixed forest, muddy tracks and a very detailed area of rhododendron which the longer courses visited. Results are on the Roxburgh Reivers site, SoSOL points here and ESOA Champions here. Posted on 26/11/14.

FwtN 3

The third Fight with the Night took place on the Braids. Despite panic emails asking for a stock of bags to protect the non-waterproof maps, the weather was kind; dry and the strong wind in general blew us back up the hill. Results were added very quickly to the series table. Posted on 14/11/14.
