2nd September 2008 Loch Belivat Evening Event – Results
We thought that we were going to escape the rain but unfortunately the heavens opened - and didn't it rain!! However, some hardy soles ventured out into the wilderness and most returned having found the majority of the controls. The weather had extreme effect - especially on those that did not finish.
We were pleased to see members from BASOC, MOR, a club in Germany, and a group of children from schools in and around Sutherland. Due to the atrocious weather and the distance that they had travelled, these children completed only the yellow course and in pairs, even though some would have got a lot out of the orange course that was set out. Hence, we had no one attempt the orange at all.
I would really like to thank Iain, Jo, and Rozy Shepherd, and David Summers, for helping us collect the controls in even though it was nearly pitch black (and Rozy needed to get home and complete her homework!).
Several orienteers found the control located alongside the hide (bird hide) difficult to find and we would take this into account in planning on this area in the future.
Yellow - 1.7km
Well done for managing to even get started - the torrential rain was unbelievable!
