Callendar Park, 3 November

Callendar Park is in Falkirk, south of the town centre, and is a large area of varied parkland centred on the historic Callendar House. The terrain included dense forest sloping to the north, with some intricate detail, many gullies and ditches, and open lawns, all with a network of paths and tracks. There were wonderful autumn colours in the trees.
Unfortunately it was raining most of the time, and underfoot conditions were very wet and muddy, with wet vegetation everywhere too.

ESOC members in the top half of the results for their course were:
  Brown (18 competitors) – Richard Purkis 3rd    
  Blue (37) – Mark Rowe 9th, Finlay Ross 10th, David Nisbet 14th, Keith Brown 15th
  Green (45) – Alison Cunningham 1st, Rona Lindsay 2nd, Helena Nolan 4th, Roger Garnett 8th, Maggie Scrugham 11th, Martin Caldwell 12th, Nick Hepworth 13th, Ian Pyrah 19th
  Short Green (16) – Mary Williams 1st, Dave Kershaw 2nd, Eleanor Pyrah 5th, Katy Lessells 8th
  Light Green (11) – Alex Armitage 5th
  Orange (12) – Fraser Lupton 1st  
  Yellow (15) – Calum Robertson 1st , Rowan Lawlor 3rd, Robyn Lupton 4th
  White (8) – Catherine Rowe 1st, Adam Rowe 2nd
