We were absolutely thrilled to receive such excellent nominations for Young Orienteer Of The Year – it was extremely heartwarming to read about the valuable and varied contributions our Junior members make to the sport.
We are very pleased to announce the shortlist, and that Tulloch Homes have very kindly sponsored the award, which will be presented at the Scottish Championships.
