News From the AGM

The club's 45th AGM was held on Thursday 24th September on Zoom. Ali Masson started proceedings with an inspiring talk on his and Sasha Chepelin's attempt to run a record number of Munros in 24 hours, including many photos and details on the intricacies of planning such an event.  It was then on to regular business, with Max Carcas giving his last report as Chairman.  Then on to Committee elections, with the following changes:

  • Chairman: Max Carcas stepped down; Colin Eades is appointed
  • Social Secretary: Jane Carcas will job-share the role with Lorna Eades
  • Newsletter Editor: Graeme Ackland stepped down; Katherine Ivory will take on a wider Comms role
  • Ordinary Member: Ken Daly stepped down; Ali Masson is appointed

Secretary John Barrow announced this year's recipient of the Gullane Rock for services to Interløpers - awarded to Max Carcas for his energy and enthusiasm in driving the club forwards over his 5 years as Chairman.

Virtual Event at Colinton Dell

Well done to everyone who took part in our virtual Colinton Dell event in the first week of September.  It's an intricate area, with the courses interspersing urban and parkland terrain to keep everyone on their toes.  Results can be found via the MapRun Console website (http://p.fne.com.au/#/fne) - search for Colinton.  The club also had a post-event Zoom call with a quiz on all things (vaguely) related to Colinton Dell which was suitably challenging and was won by Graeme Ackland.  Many thanks to Chris Dibben and Philippa Ascough for planning and for masterminding the quiz!

Individual Orienteering available

While group orienteering opportunities are reduced due to Covid-19, why not try out one of our training courses?  You can also use these as an opportunity to try out the MapRun app on your phone.  Please remember to observe current restrictions on travel and social distancing.
