30th June 2009 Nairn East Beach Evening Event – Results
It was great to see such a good turnout (58 official results plus some accompanying parents / partners). The weather was glorious - perhaps a bit too hot for some! I was particularly pleased to see so many juniors (36!!) at an evening event.
The courses seemed to be well received by most participants with some surprise expressed that Nairn East Beach could actually be suitable for a Green course. Many of the participants were keen to come to the next Tuesday evening event and were disappointed that the next date is not until 1st September.
The evening was enlivened by a visit from the Police and the Fire Brigade in response to our reports of forest 'fires' (thankfully only smouldering by the time they were reported).
There was a lively debate regarding the placement of a couple of controls in the vegetation alongside the sand dunes - it was finally decided that they were in the right area, albeit not set as far back into the vegetation as they should have been - my apologies for any confusion this caused.
A number of folk made the most of the good weather and went swimming in the sea following their orienteering - a rare opportunity!
I would like to say particular thanks to Sue Nicolson, Iain & Joanna Shepherd, and David Summers for collecting in the controls and to my husband Peter for his help throughout the day (on his 65th birthday!).
