Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup - Standings after 3 events

Here are the JD2C standings after the event at Birsemore on 8th March.

As I'm sure everyone is aware, this will be the last update for some time.  The next counting event will be advised when orienteering resumes following all relevant guidelines from BOF and UK government.

Coronavirus and Orienteering

We are all aware of the ongoing coronavirus situation.  I am reproducing here the recent communication from British Orienteering - we have been requested to cancel all events for the next 12 weeks and the events at Tillyfourie, Redburn and Sluie have now been removed from the events list.

Junior Colour and Participation Badges

Latest updates to the junior colour and participation badges.

An explanation for those new to the club: juniors will automatically gain credit for participation (badges awarded for 5, 10, 25 ,50 & 100 events) and for running colour courses within various criteria (iron, bronze, silver and gold badges can be earned).  Badges earned during the year are normally awarded at the club AGM in November.

If you think that your junior has run events for which they have not been credited, let Pat know (publicity - see contacts page).

Junior Colour and Participaton Badges

Latest updates to the junior colour and participation badges, up to and including Cambus O'May last Sunday.

Apologies for the sheets not being updated for a while but our juniors have been so busy over the summer it's been almost impossible to keep track!

Please take a moment to look over the sheets for your child to make sure everything makes sense and let Pat know if anything needs added or amended:  publicity 'at' marocscotland.org.uk
