Trina Rogerson planned our first event on the Law since the ponies were introduced.
More than 50 competitors from eight different clubs including a good group from Edinburgh University participated on the very varied terrain of the Law. Some did climb to the top to watch the demolition of the Cockenzie chimneys before their runs and some even met the Exmoor ponies whilst up there.
Apologies to those who were puzzled by the big crag on the north side of the hill that seemed to have disappeared from this version of the map, this despite the considerable time that Trina has spent on trying to get the crags and paths on the south side correct on the map.
Pete celebrated his 60th birthday in good company and everyone enjoyed the cakes. Thank you, Saartje, for the baking.
Thanks also to Trina for planning, Tim and Jonny for the computing, and Pete and Ian for collecting in controls.
Starts from 2 to 3pm. Courses close at 4pm

Control Descriptions are printed on the maps, but can be cut off if loose descriptions are preferred.
Map is roughly A4 at 1:5000 with 5m contours. Note that the crags, bare rock and paths over the top of the hill have not been mapped. (This area is not recommended as part of any good route choice.)
