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.
Sheila makes sure that the club keeps going and holds a regular set of local events as well as one larger event each year. She encourages new members, writes the club newsletter, explores new areas for mapping and is highly competitive within her age class, regularly representing Scotland at the Veteran Home Internationals. She’s often found hovering near the computers at events, keeping Robin supplied with coffee.
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.

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.
