ESOC Club Championships 2012

Sunday 4 November

The 2012 Club Championships were held in conjunction with the East of Scotland Championships and SoSOL event at Dalguise, near Dunkeld, organised by TAY.  This is a rough and steep, physically challenging area, and times were longer than might be expected. Some tricky calculations then took place to decide the ESOC Club Championships winners. See this news item for a report from the event.

Later in the day, there was a superb turnout at Swanston Golf Club for the social and prizegiving.  50 ESOC members enjoyed the buffet and convivial atmosphere, and then Crawford Lindsay (Club Captain) presented the trophies.

The prizewinners were:
Junior:
  Novice junior – Megan Brown
  Junior Girl – Rachel Brown
  Experienced Girl – Kerry Wood
  Experienced Boy – Ben Brown
  Senior Girl – Eilidh Nolan
Senior:
  Men’s Open – Andrew Lindsay
  Women’s Open – Rona Lindsay
  Veteran Men – Mike Stewart
  Veteran Women – Mary Williams
  Superveteran – Janet Clark
Pentland Trophy (for best junior performance on a senior course) – Andrew Lindsay
Most Improved Orienteer – Katy Lessells

The last trophy had no obvious winner this year, so the BOF ranking list was brought in to determine the ESOC member with the greatest percentage increase in their ranking score over the last year. Katy was the clear winner using this criterion.
