The following local businesses are supporting Scottish 6 Days 2019 in Strathearn and offering discounts to participants.
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.
Details for the Wednesday (“rest day”) events to be held on 31st July.
For those who don't want to "Rest" we have a range of activities to keep you occupied.
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.
