Wed 18th Dec 2019
Type of event: Local Race, Night
Part of the Deeside Night Cup series.
Two courses of around 3km and 5km at TD5/Green standard as far as possible. No concessions to the dark.
Sun 15th Dec 2019
Type of event: Local Race
There will be a mass start at 11am with a 60 minute Score event format*. The event is open to all, and the course will be suitable for everyone.
Registration from 10:30. Please be there in time to head in to the forest at 10:45.
We will pair up younger juniors with an older junior, confident juniors and adults can run on their own if they wish**.
* The score event has a spread of controls through the forest and it is up to the competitor what order to visit them. However at this event there is a twist… After finding one control the competitor then has to find the roving Santa, punch the control he is carrying, then back to another control, then find Santa’s helper who is roving round a different part of the wood, punch their control, another forest control, back to the Santa control etc.
** We reserve the right to handicap anyone
More explanation on the day.
Prize for the best fancy dress. Please contact Jon with any offers of refreshments.
Please sign up by Sat midday using the Doodle Poll here as this makes preparing maps much easier. There will be very limited entry-on-the-day.
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

River Dee Radio's 'Sport with Paul' visited MAROCs Glen Feardar event last Sunday. You can hear their Orienteering Special via this link - a very good summary of the Glen Feardar Event and the lead up to it.
Here are the JD2C standings after the event at Balmedie on 7th July.
The next event which counts for the JD2C will be Glen Feardar on this coming Sunday - 25th August.
