Organiser's comments

Everyone was a winner today.  The sun shone on us; there were no rugby matches at the Royal High School (letting us use the whole map); Scotland beat Tonga (they had to turn the sound down when we arrived, but we could see bits of the match); loads and loads of people came (probably a record, but I haven't counted them all up yet); everyone was very patient in the queues for Registration and at the Start; Katy’s courses provided something just right for everyone (from little kids on White to top-class orienteers on Norwegian Map Memory); no-one got lost; everyone was back safely before it got dark; the whole atmosphere was amazing.
Grateful thanks to the Royal High School Sports Hub for the indoor room (imagine all those people registering and downloading at a tent); all the members of ESOC who manned the event (and got a bit more than they bargained for); Katy for planning the courses; and most of all, to all of you for coming.

Our next event is at Cammo on 17th January 2015.  It will be every bit as good – don’t miss it.  Details will be on the ESOC website:
