  • Many thanks to all who came today and particularly to the team of helpers who made the event go smoothly, including…

    SI team – Joel and Michael, and Robin setting up in advance
    Start team – Jamie and Jeff
    Control collectors – Joel, Pete B, and Sabine of ESOC

    I apologise if you found your course or the terrain around the Law to be tougher than you expected. The good news is that next month’s event will be at Lochend Woods in Dunbar where there is unlikely to be more than a few metres of ascent or descent on any course.

    Pete Younger – Planner

  • It’s that time of year again. The AGM is the chance for all our members to have their say in the direction and running of the club.

    Despite the easing of Covid restrictions it is still tricky to find a suitable venue for a traditional face-to-face meeting, so this year’s AGM will again be held over the Zoom app. The meeting will run from 19:30 until 21:00 on Wednesday 13th October. Details on how to join the Zoom meeting will be sent to all members by email.

    We will be electing officers for the next 12 months and setting the level of membership fees, amongst many other items.

  • The final day of the Scottish 6 Days was staged at the foot of Creag Meagaidh on the lower parts of the National Nature Reserve that rises from the shores of Loch Laggan up to the summit of Creag Meagaidh itself at 1130 metres.

    East Lothian Orienteers assisted in the organising and the planning for this, the final day of the 6 Days and it was great to see so many club members helping out as well as orienteering! As a club we looked after one of the starts and the string course for the smallest participants.

    The area is predominantly open grassland and heath with a good measure of bogs and boulder fields and is in the most superb setting.

    Read more about the day itself on the Scottish 6 Days website.
