Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club

ESOA Championships 2019 & SoSOL 4Loch Ordie, 17 November

The East of Scotland Championships was held in conjunction with the fourth event in the 2019 South of Scotland Orienteering League, organised by TAY. There was a good turnout from ESOC, including 10 trophy winners.

Loch Ordie is a few miles north of Dunkeld, and although some remembered previous events in the area, this event used the southern part of the map, which was new to everyone. The terrain is open moorland, and is quite hilly, with plenty of crags, parallel ridges and marshes, with heather on higher ground. The weather was fine, though quite cold. There was mist at lower levels to start with, but sun higher up, with some lovely views along the Tay valley.

ESOC members in the top half of the results for their course were:
Brown (9 competitors) – Jon Ellis 4th, Callum Tyler 5th
Blue (36) – Peter O’Hara 3rd, Tyler Morrison 7th, Mark Wood 8th, Mark Rowe 9th, Clive Masson 12th, Peter Halling 14th
Green (46) – Alison Cunningham 1st, Hanne Robertson 6th, Roger Garnett 12th, Alastair Lessells 14th, Les Dalgleish 17th, Leonne Hutchinson 18th, Sally Lindsay 19th, Juliette Maire 20th, Helena Nolan 21st, Colin Tyre 22nd
Short Green (18) – Janice Nisbet 1st, Mary Williams 2nd, Eleanor Pyrah 3rd, Margaret Dalgleish 6th
Light Green (7) – Maja Robertson 2nd
Orange (7) – Fraser Lupton 1st
Yellow (13) – Robyn Lupton 2nd, Catherine Rowe 5th
