Scottish Orienteering Championships 2012
Thanks to Maroc and Gramp for staging the excellent Jubilee 5 extended weekend incoporating the Scottish Championship and Scottish Relay Championship.
4 races plus an informal MTBO event over 4 days of the jubilee weekend sent the vast majority of competitors home tired but happy.
Congratulations to all new champions, and especially to Cat Taylor (W21E) and Scott Fraser (M21E) both of whom will be heading to Switzerland this summer for the World Championships, confident of doing themselves justice following a string of good results. Results on Jubilee 5 website
