Hot con­di­tions for Hills Wood event

The Galloway News - - READER TRAVEL -

Ori­en­teer­ing re­turned to more recog­nis­able ter­rain with a visit to Hills Wood re­cently.

Most of the run­ning was on the open hill­side in very warm con­di­tions and or­gan­iser Derek Kennedy was happy with a good turnout of mem­bers.

Eva Cur­rie with her helpers man­aged round the short course fastest of all en­trants. Carol Macmil­lan took sec­ond spot with young Fin­lay Crooks in third.

On the medium course, Fred David­son man­aged to split the mother/daugh­ter com­pe­ti­tion with Carol Gra­ham man­ag­ing round faster than both Fred and Zoe in third spot.

Stu­art Gra­ham kept the fam­ily side in the top end of the re­sults with a win on the long course. Peter Game showed good run­ning tak­ing sec­ond place with Ian Mur­ga­troyd com­ing in third fastest.

After the visit this week to a newly mapped area, next week’s ac­tion moves to the bi­jou area of Corn­cockle near Lochmaben. Cost of tak­ing part is £3.50/£2 for se­niors/ ju­niors to cover cost of pro­vid­ing maps. Non­mem­bers have to pay a £2/£1 levy for each event. These com­pe­ti­tions are im­por­tant to re­in­force the train­ing that has been car­ried out in re­cent weeks as well as prepa­ra­tion for the forth­com­ing multi-day sum­mer com­pe­ti­tions in the Lake District.

Full in­for­ma­tion on these Wed­nes­day com­pe­ti­tions as well as ori­en­teer­ing in gen­eral can be found on the club web­site www.sol­way­ori­en­teers.co.uk and the club Face­book page.

There is still time to con­tact Kate, the club so­cial sec­re­tary, to take part in this week­end’s ten­nis ex­trav­a­ganza. In­for­ma­tion again on the web­site.
