On a warm almost spring-like afternoon Planner Douglas Tullie found a welcome sun-trap for the Start/Finish area just off the vista from Bowhill House and 20 members were soon sweating their way round the forest. Each competitor had an individual handicap to collect a set number of controls before they could return and it was Andrew Tullie, targetted to find 16 of the 18 controls, who flew across the finish line in 26.10mins closely followed by newcomer Colin Ross in 26.47 mins. First lady was Karen Maxwell in 28.46 mins.
The Planner had obviously done his job well as there were tall tales of wrong route choices, missed controls and lots of if only
Having collected the controls in the action moved to the Education Centre in the courtyard where the ladies presided over a couple of microwaves to produce haggis, neeps and tatties for everyone. Douglas Henderson brought a home-made cake complete with Reivers logo Masterchef beware !
Judy called the AGM to order and gave us an overview of the positive state of the Club. The committee were re-elected en masse, Douglas Tullie was awarded the Junior Trophy for the year and Lindsey Knox accepted the Club Achievement award. Andrew Tullie collected the Club Championship trophy plus the dubious honour of bringing it back next year dressed in the correct colour of o-top.
