Interlopers staged the final SOL of 2017 on the narrow but perfectly formed Drummond Hill on the NE end of Loch Tay.  Final positions in the O-League have been decided, with some major changes for those trying to hold onto a top 10 finish in their age class - some orienteers who had only completed in three previous events or had a poor run had the opportunity to catapult up the results board.  The SOL followed on from Interlopers Urban League event in Livingston, part of their INTrepid weekend.  The event was enhanced with the Junior Inter Area Competition taking place at the same time.

Orienteering Embargos

Roseisle embargoed area

Orienteering embargos i.e. restricted access apply to certain levels of event.  Major events (previously Level A) and National events (previously Level B)  have embargos in place by default.  The Scottish Orienteering League (SOL) events are classifed as National events and the SOL rules state: "An embargo shall be observed by those wishing to score points in the SOL.  The embargo period is one year, or from the date on which the venue is announced if this is less than a year."  Two year embargos apply to Major events and should be notified through the BOF embargo pages.

Scottish Orienteering League 6 - Forvie

The penultimate Scottish Orienteering League (SOL) event of 2017 was staged by Grampian Orienteers whose website is sub-titled "Take a Run on the Wild Side."  Forvie National Nature Reserve certainly lived up to this billing - in the pre-event information Gramp stated "It’s windswept, it’s wild, it’s wonderful (in our not-so-humble opinion but we’re sure you’ll agree)".  Hurricane Ophelia was somewhere out to the west but still the wind forced the download team and their computers into the back of a van and there was some concern that the controls would be taking off into the North Sea.
