UPDATE 10th December Thanks for the comments, and also emails that have come to me. There are a few things to note:
1. duplicates etc in the tables: I'll re-post corrected tables shortly once all the corrections have been made (nearly all result from using Scottish Champs as a SOL this year, which hopefully will not happen again for a while!).
2. Scoring rules: this year is even more complex than usual. We could do the scoring in lots of ways, but none is perfect (simplest would be to use BOF ranking points, but this doesn't work for younger juniors). Alternatives, either for the scoring system or course combinations, can always be considered by SOA, but there are always things for and against each system.
3. Contact email: we'll get an easy-to-use email link onto the SOL pages.
4. Archive of old SOL results - we will work on making this visible this too, and have sourced some quite ancient league tables to add to the

FINAL league tables for 2016 after SOL 7 are now available.
Scores arranged by COURSE or AGE CLASS are available. For some age classes there are differences in points between the courses and age classes, on account of course/class combinations used for the Scottish Championships being different from the usual SOL, see notes below for more explanations.
Initial dates and locations for the 2017 season are now available.
After 5 years of coordinating the SOUL series from its inception in 2012 as a regional offshoot of the NOPESPORT (now UKUL) urban league, current SOUL coordinator Andy Paterson (CLYDE) hands over the reins to Pat Squire (INT).

ROMP is intended as a training facility for individuals or clubs who would like to take the opportunity to orienteer on some of Scotland’s finest terrain.
Controls are now out in Uath Lochans for the period December 2016 through to the end of February 2017.
I hope that you’ll all enjoy this issue of SCORE – it’s a bit of a leap into the unknown for me. I’m no orienteer, but rather an orienteering parent looking to give back to the orienteering community through volunteering.
Would you like to work for one of the UK's most successful orienteering clubs? Are you passionate about coaching and development? Then please read on...
