You can also phone but see email for phone number
Information from last year below but for anyone who hasn’t been before you are more than welcome to ring me for a chat to see if it is something you might like to take part in . EckO have traditionally sent juniors to this competition as part of the West team and it is a fantastic way to meet other junior orienteers from all over Scotland and always a fun weekend .
Last time it was held in Inverness the cost per junior was £22 for food and accommodation with entry to the SOL and travel on top . Depending on numbers there is usually the opportunity to share transport too .


Sat 27 October – Relays event at Grant Park, Forres (coordinating with the MOR urban event that day)
Overnight accommodation for all juniors in Inverness Youth Hostel
Sat 28 October – individual competition at the MOR Roseisle SOL
The Junior Inter Area competition is an annual competition where the 3 areas in Scotland (North, West and East) compete during a relay and individual event to see which area will come out on top and we want that to be the West! This is open to all juniors who are members of Scottish open clubs and have a maximum BOF age class of M/W18. There is no lower age limit, but Juniors must be competent at and comfortable with running the Yellow course.
