13th Scottish Schools’ Orienteering Festival

Drumpellier Country Park, Coatbridge

Friday 6th June 2008


On behalf of the SSOA may I extend our thanks & congratulations once again to all the helpers & competitors who made all the work leading up to this Festival so worthwhile.


May I particularly thank


The event was originally due to be held at Pollok CP, Glasgow but due to ongoing discussions, a switch of venue was taken in early 2008. With the addition of the open – now semi wooded – area to the south, Drumpellier Country Park became an option and from the limited feedback I have received to date – as well as a vast number of Happy, Smiling Faces – I believe this was a highly successful Festival.


Can I please ask Staff & Parents to double check which trophy, if any, their School or Children received. We are aware of a number of Missing Trophies that have failed to be returned so would like you to assist us in an audit by emailing Terry@tobrien1.wanadoo.co.uk with the name of the School or Person and a description of the trophy eg Cup W10, Shield M15 Team etc..


The date for the 2009 Festival is Friday 5th June, provisionally at Beecraigs Country Park, Linlithgow.


Best Wishes
