ESOC at the ELO event/ALT-JK

Vogrie Country Park, 31 March

Ewart Scott reports:
"A hardy bunch of 16 ESOCers turned out at Vogrie on the 31st to battle the rather muddy conditions. Fortunately the morning rain had virtually stopped, but still not the most pleasant of afternoons. It was very encouraging to see some new ESOC names in the results; unfortunately I didn’t meet them.
Timothy must have found the morning’s Edinburgh Parkrun an insufficient challenge. After my walk round, I went in search of a geocache on the east side of Vogrie House. Using my phone to navigate, I met Roger en route, so I explained what I was doing. Standing beside the location, he asked ”What is it you’re looking for?” I said I didn’t know, and then Roger leaned over and picked up a plastic Santa. I should have known; the description was "Ho-ho-ho". Then Roger added, “I think I’ll stick to orienteering”; wise choice I thought."
