ORGANISER'S COMMENTS: This is a good place for a dark November afternoon.  The rain held off and there was  a lovely atmosphere inside the  Sports Hub; though a bit chaotic at peak times.  It was good to see three groups of relative beginners from Cubs, Boys Brigade and Mary Erskine  School; this is an ideal area to gain confidence on White and Yellow courses.  The new concept of a Short White course was much remarked on, and we'll try this again at the next suitable event.  The Light Green had an ingenious route choice leg; and everyone enjoyed the good visibilty through the bare trees. 
Thank you to everyone who came, everyone who worked hard to make it happen, David McPhillips for his Bake Sale in aid of "Habitat for Humanity" and Serge at The Hub for providing a warm and welcoming venue.
Next event is at Cammo on 18th January 2020.  See you there......

As in the previous articles, there are useful suggestions here for more experienced orienteers too.
