Scottish Night Championships 2017Darnaway East, Saturday 18 February

The 2017 Scottish Night Championships, organised by Moravian Orienteers, saw some good results from ESOC in challenging terrain. 

Darnaway Forest lies SW of Forres, in Moray. The event centre was at Conicavel village hall, and the start was a short distance away in the forest. The terrain was excellent - forested moraine, with many small steep hills and depressions, giving very complex contour detail in places. Most of the forest was coniferous, with heathery ground cover and some brashings, and there were areas of oak and beech, which were easier underfoot. Paths and tracks criss-crossed the area.
The weather was mild and mostly fine, with a few light showers.

Congratulations to ESOC's 3 winners:
Roger Scrutton, M70
Anne Stevenson, W65
Eleanor Pyrah, W70
