Committee

Come and speak to us at one of our events.

Robin Strain – Secretary

As well as taking minutes at meetings, Robin’s responsibilities involve communications with British Orienteering and the Scottish Orienteering Association.  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.

Tim Harding – Committee Member

Tim coordinates activities for ELO’s juniors, and is often seen at events with his family (usually son Jonny or daughter Anna). Tim is a relative newcomer to orienteering, and always seeking to improve! He has planned a couple of local events, and is happy to have a go at all flavours of O: urban, night, sprint, …

Michael Atkinson – Committee Member

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 looks after the website and the maps!
