Scottish Inter-club championships (SICC), rules and guidelines


The SICC provides an opportunity for all club members to represent their club in low-key competition with other clubs of a similar size. Set up as a Scottish Inter-Club Knock out, it was intended to compliment the Scottish heat of the CompassSport cup, and should be kept distinct from it. It will now normally be a single day competition, incorporated with another event, such as the Scottish Score Championships.

By Tam “Sprint King” Wilson

As I’m sure just about the entire orienteering world knows by now, Maureen and Bill are stepping down as heads of the Scottish Junior Squad at the end of the year, so it fell to the squad to provide a suitable leaving present. A good present would be hard to find, but the JHIs and JIRCs presented a unique opportunity. Whereas vouchers and wine will come and go, the glory from a victory over the English is a gift that one can treasure for a lifetime, and winning would be the only suitable send off.
