SoSOL 5 and ESOA Club Championships
Although much of the forest has been opened up and the rhododrendons
have been cleared, Saltoun was still a tough venue. Most people seemed
to enjoy the challenge and the glorious late autumn weather helped.
For the first time since 2010, clubs in the East area competed for the
ELO-phant trophy which was retained by ESOC with INT 2nd and RR 3rd.
Full results including updated league tables are here. Posted
The last Fight
with the Night before the Christmas break was on Blackford Hill.

SoSOL 4 and ESOA Individual Championships
The Hirsel was a new area for orienteering outside Coldstream and
offered a mixture of steep slopes, mixed forest, muddy tracks and a
very detailed area of rhododendron which the longer courses visited.
Results are on the Roxburgh
Reivers site, SoSOL points here and ESOA
Champions here. Posted on 26/11/14.
The third Fight
with the Night took place on the Braids. Despite panic emails
asking for a stock of bags to protect the non-waterproof maps, the
weather was kind; dry and the strong wind in general blew us back up
the hill. Results were added very quickly to the series
table. Posted on 14/11/14.
