Dalmeny Estate, 28th Feb

Local event in the East of Scotland Orienteering Association (ESOA) Winter series

This area isn't often used for local events so make the most of the opportunity to experience Dalmeny in its Winter glory.

The results and splits are available here. Winsplits results are here

The weather was kind to us on the day, the rain holding off until after the last competitor had finished. There was a great turn out and it was good to see such a large number of people on the green course as well as so many family groups on the other courses. I hope that some of the juniors there with their parents will go on to learn to do courses on their own. If they then join the club there will be further opportunities for them to take part in junior training and further improve their skills.

We are very grateful to Dalmeny Estate and Lord Rosebery for allowing us to hold our event in this beautiful place. It was wonderful to see all of the snowdrops out in full bloom. This was not thought about when the date was chosen but was an unanticipated additional bonus.

If anyone has lost a very nice red woollen glove I have it and will be happy to return it to its owner if they get in touch. From where it was found it is likely that the owner was going round the Orange course.
