SoSOL3 - 2009/10Gullane Dunes, 7 March

Huge numbers of people went to the final event of this busy weekend, including many ESOC members.

The third South of Scotland Orienteering League event of 2010 was organised by ELO, and took place on the East Lothian coast at Gullane. The area includes open complex dunes, mature pine woods and complicated paths through thick scrub, with some challenging navigation. Felling has changed part of the area quite dramatically in the last couple of years. The weather remained bright and dry, and there were some very fast runs.
The original SoSOL3 was to be held at Dalguise, near Dunkeld, but had to be postponed due to snow.

ESOC competitors in the top half of the results were:
Brown (63 competitors) – Andrew Dalgleish 10th
Blue (94) – Mark Wood 11th, Craig Nolan 16th, Andrew Lindsay 19th, Heather Houghton 27th, Les Dalgleish 31st, Rona Lindsay 35th, Nigel Fawthrop 37th, Helena Nolan 43rd, Finlay Ross 45th, Gemma Richards 46th
