ESOC local event in Edinburgh and the Lothians
Area especially suitable for newcomers, improvers and for experienced orienteers to practice their basic skills. Weather forecast is looking good so a good turnout is expected.
Everything went well today. It wasn't wet or windy (although a bit cold). It was warm and welcoming inside the Hub, and not too busy with other users. Our base at the far end of the room was well away from the big screen (and the "warm-up" games before Scotland tackled NZ). We got started promptly and finished even more promptly, before sunset. No-one got lost or took a long time on their course. (We've been known to collect controls by moonlight here in November). David and Michaels' courses were very well received, especially the White Course with its 21 controls. Kids just love lots of punching. The Boys' Brigade, the newcomers, the families, the old hands - everyone was here to enjoy what they had planned. Grateful thanks to the ESOC team of helpers, comprising a fine mixture of young and old members The future of the club is clearly in good hands.
This is our last event for 2017. The 2018 programme leaflet is now available, with details on the ESOC website, and we'll hope to see everyone back for more orienteering in 2018
