    Solway Saturday Series

    Silvercraig Wood, Kirkcudbright

    You will recall that last autumn 3 of our juniors organised the event in Cally Woods. It was such a success and our young folk enjoyed it so much that they were keen to repeat the experience. Once again they have worked hard and have some cracking courses planned and they are looking forward to seeing you all again. Please come along and support them and enjoy a great morning of orienteering.

    Registration and map sales will open at 10.00 as normal. There is a slight change in when the Start times will begin, this is to allow time to get the controls out. Start times will begin at 10.30 and run until 12.30.


    Cost for members - adults £3.50 & Juniors £2.00. Non members are most welcome but will be asked to pay a surcharge - adults +£2.00 & juniors +£1.00.

    Parking will be in the Forestry Commission car park just off the B727 Kirkcudbright to Gelston road.
