Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club


SOL 6, 2019

Teviothead, 13 October

Teviothead is in the Borders, south of Hawick, and is remembered by many as the scene of the 2012 CompassSport Cup Final, when the weather was atrocious - wet and windy. This time the forecast was not quite as bad, but there were a few showers, and some mist. The terrain is open moorland, mostly grassy, with lots of confusing lumps and bumps, some long climbs, plenty of marshes and a sprinkling of small crags. There were some good views between showers, and some good route choice legs.

ESOC members in the top half of the results for their course were:
  Brown (17 competitors) – Sarah Jones 5th   
  Blue (36) – Keith Brown 11th, Crawford Lindsay 12th, Helena Nolan 14th
  Short Blue (25) – Peter Halling 3rd, Roger Garnett 6th, Hanne Robertson 7th
  Green (42) – Alison Cunningham 1st, Sally Lindsay 14th, Roger Scrutton 18th, Alastair Lessells 21st
  Short Green (35) – Ian Pyrah 1st, Mary Williams 3rd, Anne Stevenson 8th, Eleanor Pyrah 9th, Rhona Fraser 10th, Janet Clark 16th
  Light Green (13) – Maja Robertson 1st
  Orange (19) – Margaret Dalgleish 8th, Fiona Findlay 10th
  Yellow (7) – Calum Robertson 1st
