Excitement is mounting for the 2018 Junior Inter Area competition, to be held in Moray this weekend. The annual competition pits the skills of juniors from East, West and North area clubs, and this year the East of Scotland are hosting the competition in conjunction with Moravians "Moray Mix” weekend. Saturday sees head to head racing in a relay at Grant Park, Forres with some participants also running the adjacent SOUL event afterwards. The fun continues at Inverness Youth Hostel on the Saturday night, followed by an individual race at the SOL at Roseisle on Sunday. The 2017 victors were the North, but will face tough competition from the West and East this year - best of luck to all teams!
Congratulations to Edinburgh-based Interlopers who retained their Compass Sport Trophy title at Cannock Chase over the weekend. Forth Valley Orienteers came a close second to South Yorkshire Orienteers in the Compass Sport Cup. Further reporting is on the British Orienteering website.

The "summer" ROMPs (seasonal orienteering courses) have now been removed from Loch Vaa and Glenmore Lodge area. It is proposed that a "winter" ROMP is established from the middle of December through to the end of March - details to be determined. Thank you to everyone who made use of the opportunity to train in some fine terrain and scenery.
