The Galloway News - - READER TRAVEL -

Sol­way Ori­en­teers are gear­ing up for their next ma­jor com­pe­ti­tion this com­ing week­end. A few trav­elled to take part in com­pe­ti­tions last week­end.

Ker­ryWil­lacy and daugh­ter Scar­lett de­cided to carry on their re­turn to the sport with a visit to Bor­der Lin­ers’ low key event south of Carlisle at Faulds Brow.

Scar­lett ran the novice course to fin­ish 10th while Mum tested her­self on the long tech­ni­cal, re­turn­ing 29th.

Er­rochty in Perthshire was the venue for round four of the Scot­tish Ori­en­teer­ing League but few lo­cals made the jour­ney to com­pete in the league.

Short blue was Dave McQuillen’s choice and his re­ward was an ex­cel­lent sev­enth place. Jane McQuillen re­turned 24th on the short green.Vic­to­ria Gra­ham was the only other Sol­way mem­ber, trav­el­ling with fel­low Glas­gow Univer­sity col­leagues, and she tack­led the green course.

This com­ing Sun­day, Dave McQuillen changes tack and is plan­ner for Sol­way’s ma­jor event for this year.

The Oc­to­ber round of the South Scot­land Ori­en­teer­ing League is be­ing held at Mark Hill, Rock­cliffe, and most club stal­warts are in­volved in help­ing make it a suc­cess.

It will be a step up for most who take part in lo­cal events but an ex­cel­lent test of nav­i­ga­tion to get round the var­i­ous cour­ses. Regis­tra­tion is from 10am till 12 noon for those not pre-en­tered and maps cost a bit more than other usual events.

Full in­for­ma­tion on the event and ori­en­teer­ing in gen­eral is on the club web­site: www.sol­way­ori­en­teers. co.uk .
