Elibank, 21 March
Elibank is in the Tweed Valley near Peebles, and the event was organised by Roxburgh Reivers. The area is a plantation forest, mostly on steep hillsides (so the courses had quite a lot of ascent), with some complex gullies enlivened by a field archery course, and also some very pleasant grassy terrain along the riverside. The snow this winter had flattened much of the undergrowth, and fine weather with sunny intervals made it a very enjoyable event.
ESOC competitors in the top half of the results were:
Blue (38 competitors) – Craig Nolan 3rd, Andrew Lindsay 7th, Rona Lindsay 9th, Keith Brown 14th, Helena Nolan 16th
