Well done to anyone who completed today’s courses – tougher than usual with steep climbs and slippery conditions underfoot.
Many thanks to the small ELO team today – Michael (liaised with junior training session at Yellowcriag), Saartje (meeting and greeting) and especially to Tim who ran the entries and timing almost single handed – and then ran – and then collected some controls. Robin checked maps and set up the timing for us beforehand.
It was great to see so many new faces today – we hope you enjoyed it. Next month’s event is at Vogrie Country Park on 31st March – and we can guarantee there won’t be so many hills to climb there.
ELO hosted the second SoSOL of the 2018 series at Binning Wood on Sunday 28th January.
Many thanks to all who came and to the many helpers – ELO members, friends and family. Trina’s courses got lots of good feedback – and it didn’t hurt that the rain stopped just as the courses opened. PY
This year’s Festive Frolic was held at John Muir Country Park outside Dunbar on Saturday 30th December.

Thanks to all runners and helpers – especially Sheila Strain for her inventive Score course and for Robin Strain for incorporating the special bonuses into the SI results.
A good turnout on a chilly day enjoyed Debbie Riley’s first attempt at course planning. Debbie’s courses made the most of Butterdean’s limited area.
Around 80 took part with a huge range of age and experience – several older hands and plenty of youngsters. East of Scotland juniors held a training session before the event and a contingent from East Linton cubs and scouts worked towards their map-reading badges. And many new families and individuals who were also very welcome.
Thanks to everyone who braved the wind and ran the courses which were all on the tough side. Thanks also to the ELO members who helped – especially Neil for doing the SI – and also Trina, Ian and Godfrey and family.
Apologies for the lack of hire dibbers and for the printing error on White course maps. Normal service will doubtless be resumed at Butterdean next month!
Many thanks to everyone who came and especially to Tim and Val Harding for running the entries and SI timing as well as to Trina Rogerson and the Atkinson family for their invaluable contributions.
Considering the number of other events on today the turnout was gratifying and most people seemed to enjoy the gentle and varied pleasures of Levenhall Links.
Our August event was at Dunbar in our regular slot of the last Saturday of the month. It was be based at the Seafield area of Belhaven and courses were planned by Godfrey Beddard.
Planner’s Comments:It was a very windy day so only the hardiest souls came out for orienteering at Barns Ness on Saturday. The East Linton and Gifford branch of the Cubs seemed to enjoy the White course and a handful of them took on the Yellow course too. The course area might be described as fast since there are lots of paths and the area is open so visibility is excellent. However some cubs were rescued having promised Jonathan (co-planner) a sausage from their BBQ. Most seemed to get round with few hitches. The ever-changing shape of the gorse is always a worry to any planner. The planning team discussed using the small kites next year so they are slightly harder to find. Next stop for the Si units is Ballater for the 6 days. I hope to see some of you there in August. Andrea
Thanks to everyone who came and particularly to Tim Day and the Aberlady Cubs and Scouts who have enthusiastically supported this SprintELOpe programme.
Michael’s urban courses were well received and we were again lucky with the weather – the heavens opened just as the last control was collected at 8:30.
After the previous day’s torrential rain the weather was kind – although with strong winds a tight grip was needed on the map.
There was a fair turnout bolstered by Brownies and Guides who took part enthusiastically and navigated (mostly) with accuracy around Winterfield and Bayswell parks.
Even those of us who know Dunbar well were taken to some hidden byways on the urban courses and there were many compliments for Trina’s planning.
