Blackford Hill and The Hermitage, 23rd Jul

The results are here.

Planner's Comments:  Mike Stewart writes - The area lent itself well for a SCORE event. I tried to make it so that as many people as possible could collect them all without penalty for arriving back late. Hopefully everybody enjoyed the challenges of which order to pick them up in.
Thanks to my dogs for accompanying me around the planning of the event and Margaret for getting out of bed early to bring me the equipment on the day.

Organiser's Comments:  Ewart Scott writes - Thank you to those who attended our local event at Blackford Hill today.  Numbers were perhaps a little down compared to other local events through the year, understandably being the middle of the school holidays.  However, the area was as busy as ever with dog walkers and strollers.  The variety of courses planned by Michael Stewart was very good with excellent use made of the whole area and some small sections seldom visited on orienteering courses.  A small hold up when the first finishers arrived was due to a problem with a download unit, but a change of unit solved that.

Thanks also to the small but efficient ESOC team for helping and control collecting in rounding off a very pleasant afternoon.
