Congratulations to everyone who ventured out into wet hills of Teviothead today. There was an impressive turnout of over 30 hardy souls. A special welcome to two orienteers from Solway who ventured East to run on Reivers territory today.
It was encouraging to see a number of orienteers taking on the challenge of the contour-only course. The ordinary Light Green course used exactly the same controls so the contour only competitors can compare themselves against those who had the benefit of the black detail on their map. Ian Maxwell, who ran the contour only course had the fastest time of all, but Ian might just have a little bit of local knowledge as well.
The competition at the top of all the standard courses was fierce with Faisal Khursheed winning the Light Green by under two minutes, Marc Heger just pipping Yousuf Khursheed by a minute and half in the Orange and Eilidh Murray had less than a minute to spare over Emma Amos in the Yellow.
In the Light Green Course, James Purves’ time has been adjusted to reflect the fact that his Start punch didn’t register properly. To make the mathematics simple James we just deducted 828 minutes from your recorded first leg time!]

The Club barbecue required a further degree of hardiness from Club Members although there was a cover over the barbecue. Thanks are due to John Tullie for fabricating a cover from black bin bags at short notice. A good deal of food and drink was consumed.
The Autumn Series of events is scheduled to start in September. Further details will appear on the website in due course and we look forward to welcoming more and more orienteers to our events.
