Corstorphine Hill, 17th Feb

ESOC local event in Edinburgh and the Lothians

Note this is a late change of area for the 17th February event.  The event was originally scheduled to be at Dalmeny Estate but had to be changed in early January 2018, some time after the 2018 local event fliers were distributed.  Corstorphine Hill is an equally good area, suitable for orienteering at all skill levels.

The results are here.

Winsplits are here.

Organiser's Comments
The Corstorphine Hill event was well attended, and it was lovely to welcome so many newcomers and family groups as well as experienced orienteers.   I hope everyone will be keen to do more orienteering, and it was very encouraging to hear so many enthusiastic comments.

Thanks to Ian and Eleanor for their great courses – and it was even a nice day! 
Pepsi’s compass: contact me to get it back, or collect it at the event at Mary Erskine School and Ravelston Woods.
