Interløpers Orienteering Club - Edinburgh

Sprintelope 2016:  it's like sprint, but it goes on a bit longer!  See the Events page for a complete programme of events.

Next week's Sprintelope will be around Bonaly streets, organised by Judy Bell of ESOC.

See the "Recent Results" panel to the right for results of SprINTelopes 1 and 2 on 1 and 15 June.


Interløpers Juniors perform well at Jamie Stevenson Trophy (19 June)

The Jamie Stevenson Trophy is Scotland's Junior Inter-Club competition and is highly competitive with the majority of top Scottish Juniors taking part.  Despite missing Freddie and James at Jukola, Interløpers were a creditable 5th, ahead of ESOC and only 7 points behind 3rd.  Well done all!

The Interløpers scoring runners were Kirsty Owen (who podiumed with 3rd on Orange girls), Sam Bartlett (4th on Orange boys), Joseph Bartlett (5th on Light Green boys), Matthew Ross (6th on Light Green boys), Fiona Eades (6th on Orange girls) and Thomas Ross (6th on Yellow boys).  Special mention to new Interløpers members Eilidh Galloway and Molly Dudchenko who finished 10th on Orange Girls - great work on a tricky course!

Interløpers also had the best barbecue after the event, complete with Marshmallows (thanks Lorna), and our Juniors had enough energy for a big after-run football match!

Annual General Meeting

A good turn-out of members attended the AGM at the Charwood, Fairmilehead, on Thursday 9 June.  The usual collection of Reports was presented, and there were no contentious issues raised.  Barry Owen stood down as Child Protection Officer, so we are looking for a replacement - all offers considered!  John made his annual choice for the award of the Gullane Rock, and this year the recipient was Paul Caban (in absentia).  The Minutes of the Meeting will appear on this site in due course.

After the Meeting,  those remaining were served an enjoyable meal at the restaurant.

(Reasonably) Late Breaking News

The selections for this year's World Championships in Sweden on 20-28 August were recently announced on the BOF website.  Of particular interest to Interløpers is that Hector Haines has been chosen to represent GBR in the Middle and Long races, while Alan Cherry (ex-INT, and now EBOR) is also picked for the Long event.  Congratulations to them both.
