This was probably the first orienteering day incorporating a World Ranking Event where knitted aliens were presented to the winners. The Scottish Junior Orienteering Squad (ScotJOS) is looking at various fundraising initiatives including aliens. The Gristwood household (Graham and Fanni Gyurko) as winners of the Men’s and Women’s Elite will no doubt be delighted with these new additions.
