SSOF 2011

Scone Palace, 22 June

12 ESOC juniors competed at the annual Scottish Schools event, which had been postponed from 3 June due to storm damage.  Schools from all over Scotland were represented, with over 300 schoolchildren attending, giving a lively atmosphere.  There are separate classes for boys and girls, based on academic year, with entrants from P5 upwards.  In each class, the top 3 results for the same school are totalled to give the team score.  The weather was cloudy but bright, although it was a little wet underfoot in places, following recent rain.  Picnics on the grass were followed by a prompt prizegiving, allowing everyone to set off in good time for the journey home.

ESOC juniors did well in several classes:
  P5/6 girls – Kerry Wood 2nd, Rachel Brown 7th
  S5/6 girls – Rona Lindsay 1st
  P5/6 boys – Ben Brown 16th, Peter Fawthrop 39th,
                    Adam McGregor mp (better luck next time!)
  P7 boys – Jamie Fawthrop 9th, Euan Mackay 10th
  S3 boys – Gavin Williams 6th
                His team (Stewart’s Melville College) won this class
  S4 boys – Craig Nolan 3rd, Adam Hunter 9th
                Their team (Currie High School) came 2nd
  S5/6 boys – Andrew Lindsay 1st

See the Scottish Schools Orienteering Association website for full results and other information about the event.
