Flying dogs, dragons, dinosaurs, Coos, friendships renewed and new ones forged, competition, fun, sunshine, thunderstorms, teamwork, volunteers, fantastic scenery and finally amazing orienteering are just a few of the words that come to mind to summarise the latest Scottish 6 Days Orienteering week at Strathearn.
4 days of Sprint and Urban orienteering around Bo’ness and Denny!
Ross Lilley's training event at Glen Nant
Last weekend, saw several Ecko members and families taking part in the Scottish Individual and Relay Championships. The Individuals were held at Dalbeattie Forest near Dumfries and the Relays were held at Drumlanrig.
Here is Iris's report. She sounds as if she enjoyed herself very much! Thank you Iris for a very interesting and enthusiastic report which will hopefully inspire all EckO's up and coming juniors to work hard at their orienteering and benefit from this sort of experience.

The weekend of 30/31st March saw several Ecko members and families venturing further afield!
Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
