Day 6 Overview - Grandtully - Final Edition
Grandtully has previously been connected with canoeing the rapids but there was a new type of downhill race with the final day of Strathearn 2019 in close proximity to the river. For yet another day the weather held out and the Middle Distance race was a fantastic finale to what has been a hugely successful Scottish 6 Days.
The Day 2 Organiser has received 4 protests about the decision to void the legs across the river. The Day Organiser and Controller decided that they did not agree with the protests and convened the jury who have now reached the following decision:
Overview - Day 5 - Craig a Barns
Craig a Barns was the birthplace of Scottish orienteering and has seen many excellent events since 1962. The map extract and control description from 1968 (extracted from a recent article at https://www.scottish-orienteering.org/membership/score-magazine/ shows that we have made some progress in mapping since the year I started orienteering and it was great to see a top-level World Ranking Event won by two of our GB athletes who are Norway-bound for WOC 2019.
Overview - Day 4 - Culteuchar and Dron
We promised a variety of terrain types and a few surprises. Culteuchar & Dron was very different from the past few days and offered fast running over closely cropped grassland before descending into the woods. And what a finish – who would believe 2,500 orienteers would end up in someone’s back garden?
Orienteers enjoyed a day of Munro bagging/golf/mountain biking/visiting distilleries/souvenir shopping/castles/Sprint Orienteering and Trail O (delete as appropriate). For others it was a case of setting up for the next few days – expect a surprise with the Day 4 race arena.
Congratulations to all who took part in the Rest Day TrailO and many thanks to the volunteers who made it happen. There were some strong performances and the winners were:
Seniors: 1. Matthew Pickering (UBOC), 2. Ian Ditchfield (MV), 3. Chris Embrey (MDOC)
Juniors: 1. River Edis-Smith (MDOC), 2. Samuel Leitch (SO), 3. Anna Harris (DEE)
Special mention goes to Matthew who completed a clean sheet of correct answers on both the TempO and Pre-O courses.
Full results will be on the web.
Prizes for the top 3 seniors and juniors will be presented at the 6 Day prizegiving on Day 6. If any of the winners are unable to be there, leave a message at registration and we'll arrange for you to collect your prize from there.
Beautiful weather, a stunning race arena and some of the best orienteering terrain in Scotland. Today’s event near St Fillans had it all, with the added attraction of a World Ranking Event Middle Distance race (and Middle Distance for us all which was a welcome relief after two tough days).
Edinchip is a brand new area to orienteering and credit goes to Allan Downie (Tayside Orienteers) and Terry O’Brien (Event Coordinator) for their exploratory efforts finding new terrain that was under everyone’s noses all the time. Edinchip was technically less demanding than Auchingarrich, but instead offered a variety of different terrain types from sheep grazed moorland, birch forest, marsh, ancient oak woodland and more marsh!
