Over 30 orienteers found their way to Rock, Salt and Sole in Banchory on Wednesday for a meal and prize giving marking the end of the 2017/18 Deeside Night Cup Series.
Members of Mar Orienteering and Grampian Orienteering Clubs shared their stories over tasty fish and chips as the final scores were being totalled up from the closing event earlier that evening on Sluie estate.
I'm sure the sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed some people in the wrong age categories in the previously published standings! Here is a revision of the standings, hopefully with the correct age categories for everyone this time: JD2C standings. Further update after the Shooting Greens event to follow soon...
Results in italics indicate that the competitor was shadowed and score half points. The coordinator has asked that people get in touch if the status (shadowed or not shadowed) is incorrect for your family members.
Mar Orienteering Club Constitution
Version 3 January 2018
Our membership for 2018 is now open. This year there will be two types of membership available: through BOF or through SOA. The club strongly encourages you to select the BOF option. To understand why, please read the full article here.
With the AGM coming up, please cast your eye over this (or get parents to do it for you!) and let us know if you think we've missed anything for you - we wouldn't want anyone to miss out on a badge that they are entitled to - you can use to let us know.
It has now been agreed that the MAROC event on 1st October will be included in the JD2C, so we're back up to 9 events. The remaining events counting for the JD2C are therefore Cambus o' May on 1st October, Forvie on 15th October and Scolty on 5th November. Scoring will now be best 5 out of 9 events.
Those of you who have trophies, please return them to John Mason at one of the upcoming events so that they can be engraved and awarded to this year's winners at the MAROC and/or GRAMP AGMs.
MAROC is now 40 years old! To honour this milestone, we are holding a 40th Anniversary Dinner at the Raemoir Hotel on Friday 3rd November 2017, with all current and past members welcome.
