ELO is looked after by a small committee, elected at the AGM to which all members are invited.
Come and speak to us at one of our events.
Pete took over as Chair at the 2017 AGM. He also represents ELO at meetings of the East of Scotland Orienteering Association, which has responsibilities including organising the Scottish Championships every three years and fielding a team at the Junior Inter-Area competition each year.
Trina’s organisation and book-keeping ensures the club runs smoothly. As well as keeping the accounts, Trina lets the club use her garage to store much of our equipment. She maintains contact with the owners, tennants and rangers of all the areas we run on, ensuring we can hold events on a wide range of terrain.
As well as taking minutes at meetings, Robin’s responsibilities involve communications with British Orienteering and the Scottish Orienteering Association. He is also webmaster. More obviously, he champions the use of SPORTident timing systems at orienteering events not just in East Lothian but all across Scotland. At any events, he’s most easily found wherever the computers are.

Michael has been orienteering since 2015 when he came along to a summer evening event in Tranent and has enjoyed getting lost and finding his way again ever since. Often to be found trying to work out where the rest of the family have got to (trying to buy ice cream is a good bet), Michael also helps to maintain the website.
