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!

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.
