Some great news for 2014 is that the Scottish Sprint Championships, which had been in some doubt due to an issue with permissions, is now definitely happening in conjunction with the Scottish Night Champs, on Sat 15 Feb. The location for the Sprint Champs is Perth, Muirton, with the Scottish Night Champs shortly after at Kinnoul Hill, both organised by Tayside Orienteers. The Scottish Sprint Champs will count towards the SOUL series and will now be SOUL 2, with every subsequent race adding a 1 to its title. The next day also sees the Scottish heats of the CompassSport Cup at Aberfoyle.

Thanks to MAROC for staging two days of contrasting but challenging orienteering on a weekend that included SOUL 5, SOL 6 and (in conjunction with GRAMP) the Scottish Junior Inter Area Championships.
Results for SOUL 5 available here.
With SOUL entries swollen by the SOL/JIAC, SOUL points were harder earned this weekend, especially in the junior courses.
The updated SOUL series after 5 events will be available here over the next few days in stages, due to the need for some manual adjustment to the format.
SOUL series available here.

The October issue of the Scots Magazine (out now, £2.50) has a nice two page article on Urban Orienteering in Scotland, including a brief interview with Hollie Orr. We’re really fortunate that journalist Garry Fraser took such an interest in Urban Orienteering - its not that often we get orienteering into the mainstream press, let alone a magazine with a worldwide distribution!
