Notes from the Planner :

In the past we’ve experienced a number of extremes when we’ve put on a bigger event at Teviothead – a hot,sticky, midgie-filled summer night for a Harvester Trophy and a thoroughly sodden October CompassSport Cup final spring to mind.  But today, for most of you, conditions were ideal for a challenging run –  visibility on this very open area was limited by the mist which placed a greater importance on keeping in close contact with the map.  

I do hope that you enjoyed the challenge that the contour detail can provide. I tried to make sure that all courses presented as many interesting legs as possible.  In particular, legs 3-4 on Green and Short Blue offered a fundamental route choice of crossing the direct rough new plantation area versus the longer route on the open hill. And I heard from quite a few of you justifying both route choices –  that’s music to a planner’s ears !   

But if it made you think, then I do hope that you leave with an appreciation of why we in Roxburgh Reivers regard Teviothead as one of our best classic orienteering areas.

Coldingham results

Results from todays event are HERE

Thanks to the 19 folk who came along to sample the new map, including a couple of people from outwith the Borders and two who live in Coldingham. From the discussions afterwards I seem to have provided a good challenge for everyone on the Long course.

It was a bit windy so we made the right decision not to have a beach social, and I hope everyone enjoyed The Anchor’s beer garden and food. Thanks to Lynne for suggesting the area in the first place, and organising the food. Hope to see you all again at either Teviothead on 13 October or Gordon on 9 November.

Darnick Results with full splits

The results can be seen by clicking HERE

That was a good turnout on Tuesday, and with the bonus of a few locals recruited by Seb and Ellie, hope everyone enjoyed the orienteering. We certainly chose a good evening for it, weather seriously downhill by Wednesday afternoon.

As hoped, Darnick made quite a good venue for a Sprint and I was pleased at how competitive the event was, with no fewer than four runners holding the lead at one point. Somehow I lost the symbol for a narrow path on the new map, but half an hour with a strimmer made them a bit more obvious. Well done to Tim for coming through to win. Thanks again also to the Darlow family for generously providing a venue for the prizegiving, and to Ian for doing the maths and arranging the prizes.

Maybe a night sprint at Shunter’s Wud next winter when the vegetation has died down?

Thanks very much to Duncan for coming to the rescue and putting the results and splits on the website – that was way beyond my computing skills!

Thanks again all for coming
