Palacerigg Country Park, 13 March
Palacerigg Country Park is on high ground just to the SE of Cumbernauld, and there had been heavy snow there the previous day. Several inches of melting snow meant cold, wet feet for everyone, and lots of mud, making it quite hard going at times. Nevertheless, most seemed to have enjoyed it. The courses covered much of the country park, passing fields of animals including rare breeds, and also visiting some complex quarry workings. The weather was cold and dull but dry. Indoor facilities and a café were very welcome.
ESOC competitors in the top half of the results were:
Brown (17 competitors) – Andrew Lindsay 5th, Mark Wood 6th
