Sheila Strain has also delivered seven separate activities for various youth groups across the county. Our next event is not until Saturday 7th September at Yellowcraig.

Ormiston Sprintelope

This was our second event in the summer 2019 Sprintelope series taking place on Wednesday evenings. These are lightweight informal events featuring Urban style races around the streets of towns in East Lothian and other areas in and around Edinburgh.

Jamie Wilson was making his debut as planner and his courses got plenty of encouraging feedback. A select bunch of hardy individuals braved the wet chilly weather to explore the many intricate lanes and closes of the older and newer parts of the village.

Vogrie Country Park
Saturday 27 April 2019

Our Saturday local event for April was at Vogrie Country Park.

Vogrie Country Park is a woodland estate managed by Midlothian Council.  The Tyne Water runs through the park in a steep sided valley which can provide a physical challenge.  Vogrie also hosts a Saturday parkrun and has a popular playground but its varied terrain and 12 mile path network make this a popular venue for orienteering, particularly for those new to the sport.  For the more experienced there are plenty of ways to navigate between controls both on paths and off them!

Event Report

Many thanks to everyone who made it out to Binning Wood on Saturday afternoon – the rain in the late morning didn’t deter many people and rightly so as the clouds dispersed at lunchtime and the afternoon was spent in the sunshine.  It was encouraging to see a lots of new folks out, particularly families discovering that orienteering is a great sport for everyone in the family.  We hope to see you again at our next event.

The clearings in Binning are notoriously tricky to negotiate cleanly and definitely reward those who routinely check which path to take using their compass. Hopefully most of you managed to stay out of the worst of the rhododendrons and brashings (it certainly appeared that way from the feedback afterwards) and enjoyed the nice parts of the woods and there are plenty of those.

It’s always nice to see results where there are no mis-punches but we do agree that there was something not-quite-right with the features and distances around control 110 which was on the orange and the light green courses and held some of you up.

The aim of the light green course was to give plenty of route choice so you may be interested to see some of the choices which were available:

Thanks also to all the volunteers – without you, we wouldn’t be able to hold fantastic events like this each month!

John Muir Country Park, near Dunbar
Saturday 23 February 2019

Our February event was in John Muir Country Park (JMCP) near Dunbar. Despite rival events on Deeside we had another strong attendance with many families as well as a sprinkling of more experienced orienteers.  The club tent didn’t (quite) blow away and everyone came back safe and sound and looking cheerful.

Many thanks to everyone who attended and to all the ELO helpers especially …

  • Neil who made the timing run smoothly and Robin who set it up in advance
  • Matt, Ian and Trina who collected controls as well as other roles.

Winton Estate, Pencaitland
Saturday 19 January 2019

Results


Winton Estate was a new area for orienteering in East Lothian which attracted lots of experienced orienteers and local families.

Organisers Report

Thank you to Sir Francis Ogilvy for permission to map and run on this part of Winton Estate, and to Janis Ward, event co-ordinator for her help with the arrangements. £75 was collected for car parking which will be given to the estate as they do a lot not only to permit public access but do work in landscaping and improving and signing footpaths and walks.
