ECKO Evening Event - Ardnaskie



WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2008

Ardnaskie is on the southern shore of Loch Etive, near Oban and is the western part of the Airds Park orienteering map. It was as rough and tough as ever - much more woody than the map suggests; but on a glorious sunny evening was well worth the journey. I ran the Blue course which was 6.7k with 15 controls. It was good to see Alan Partridge orienteering again after an absence of nearly 30 years - a top cross country and road runner in days gone by, he could "ruffle a few feathers" in the M50, or possibly M55, ranks if he competes seriously again!

MOR Local Event - Uath Lochan Central







The event flier advertised technical courses "with a twist." This involved a single main course of 6.9k with 16 controls, with those on the long course able to miss one control of their choice, those on the medium three(?) controls of their choice, and so on. I did the long course, but chose not to miss any controls.
