The Scottish |Orienteering Championships took place in EckO land over the weekend of 26th (Individual) and 27th (Relays) at Creag Mhic Chailein and Inverawe, both near Taynuilt.

On Saturday, twenty EckO members took part in the Individual championships, with some notable successes.

Jan Kersel was an impressive 3rd overall, 1st Scot, and Scottish Champion in W65.

In the M14 class Finlay Cottier finished in a superb second place. His older brother Ruari was 5th in the very competitive M16 class.

The Rose Price triplets finished 4th (Sylva), 5th (Éowyn), and 8th (Indira) in the W12 class

Ecko jointly staged the Scottish Relays on the Sunday 27th with StAG, SOLWAY and AYROC. The club fielded 4 teams in the competition when members were not helping with the organisation. Particular thanks to Terry O'Brien (StAG) for planning and organising the event as well as overall weekend co-ordinator. Also thanks to Alan and Andy for running the SI and computing side of things. Sunny weather greatly helped the festive nature of the event and lots of happy orienteers left for home after a weekend of quality orienteering.
