Big Moravian Junior Contingent Set for Junior Inter-Areas

Thanks to our junior captain Pippa Weir for this news item. Pippa has done some great work in the past few years in to moulding our juniors into a real team. It's terrific to see so many making the long journey south to help North area to what we hope will be a win in 2 weeks' time. As always, this will be a great social occasion too. Oh to be young again!

Junior Inter-Area Competition Weekend

Eighteen Moravian juniors will be heading south next weekend as part of Team North to take on Team East and Team West. The weekend begins with exciting relays near Livingston on Saturday 28th in which our youngsters will be mixed into teams of three with other juniors from Invoc, Maroc, Basoc and Gramp. Some of us will be spending a fun and sociable night making new friends at Stirling Youth Hostel which has been booked in its entirety by the three areas but then we will all reconvene at Drummond Hill near Aberfeldy on Sunday for the final stage of the battle, this time with individual runs in the Scottish Orienteering League race. We hope we can help Team North come out victorious this year – it was so close twelve months ago at Culbin!

Joining team North are:

Josh & Scarlett Britain, Carrie Brown, Ben & Alana Coutts, Connor & Ryan Curran, Isobel & Sophie Howard, Faith and Fergus Kenyon, Hannah Kingham, Kate & Finlay McLuckie, Ida Oikkonen, David Spencer, Mairi Weir and Eva Wiseman.

Good luck to you all from everyone in the club!
