The EckO committee
Have you remembered to renew your orienteering membership?
Here is one good way to familiarise yourself with orienteering techniques and skills or improve your own orienteering in your own time and from the comfort of your own home.
Have a look at BASOC's (Badenoch and Strathspey Orienteering Club) article linking to ©Duncan Bayliss's Better Orienteering site.
Wet but fabulous - the run or the runners?
The final SOL (Scottish Orienteering League) was held recently at Teviothead in the Borders. It's a beautiful part of the world but unfortunately the mist was down so it was difficult to appreciate the spectacular scenery.
There has been an exciting development for juniors in the West of Scotland who are interested in improving their orienteering skills. Please read the information below and follow the links if your child/children are interested. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our junior co-ordinator Susannah Macmillan or any committee member through the EckO web site.
Louis MacMillan was chosen by British Orienteering to attend a two week orienteering tour to Sweden this summer. This is his report.
Whilst most of us were at Dunstaffnage enjoying some training and orienteering, a couple of EckO members were competing in the British Middle Distance Champs at Chinley Churn. Talented EckO Junior Louis Macmillan, competing in M18, not only managed a podium place but clinched first place. Louis has had a fantastic season so far and long may it continue. Congratulations to Carol Burnapp also for competing in W50. Hope the knee held up!
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.
