Organiser's comments:

Windy today; the tents would never have survived.  We walked all round the building to find the sheltered side, and crouched behind the walls for Registration, with the computers safely in the van in case of rain. It could have been much worse; the forecast was scary.  Numbers were down a bit on some of our Saturdays, but those who were determined enough to come were well rewarded.  Winning times on all courses were good, and Corstorphine Hill lived up to its reputation for proving tricky enough in parts even for those who know it well.

Many thanks to Maureen Brown who planned the courses, Katy, Anne and Alastair who put out the controls, and a large team of ESOC helpers.  We are also most grateful to the General Teaching Council of Scotland who let us use their car park so willingly and so often.
