Compass Point Scottish O League 2016

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: Trevor Hoey
4. Archive of old SOL results - we are working on this, and have sourced some quite ancient league tables to add to the archive.

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.

Including JEC Spectator Race 3

SOL 6 was also the venue for the Junior European Cup long distance race, so you were able to spectate before your run (with commentary), and then runners on Blue to Black got to run JEC courses themselves. The forest was looking good, and the map had been extended into some excellent new terrain since the last event there.
Results available here and on the Clyde web site.
