Highland 2015 wins award
The Scottish Orienteering Association picked up the prestigious Event of the Year Award (People’s Choice) at the Drum Event Awards in Glasgow for the staging of Highland 2015 – World Orienteering Championships and the Scottish 6 Days. Partners included EventScotland, British Orienteering and the Scottish Orienteering 6-Day Event Co Ltd, and thanks go out to everyone involved, particularly the many helpers and volunteers, who helped make this event such a success.
We also received a Commendation for Sports Event of the Year, so all-in-all a tremendous night for the promotion of orienteering to a much wider audience. Colin Matheson, Events Manager for Scottish Orienteering, attended the red-carpet ceremony in Glasgow and was quick to thank key players through social media – Richard Oxlade was Event Coordinator for the Scottish 6 Days and Paul McGreal Event Director for WOC.
