The Jamie Stevenson Trophy, the annual inter-club orienteering event for junior teams from Scottish clubs, returned again this year to Perth's Kinnoull Hill.
The Jamie Stevenson is an annual inter-club competition for junior orienteers in Scotland. It was set up over 10 years ago to celebrate Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club member Jamie Stevenson’s gold medal at the 2003 World Orienteering Championships in Switzerland. This is a great event for juniors of all abilities to meet, socialise and compete against each other. The competition is open to juniors (M/W18 and under) and courses offered include Yellow, Orange, Light Green and Green.

Registration & Start Times
Approximate timings for TAY members not in the junior competition:- starts from around 1400.

Explanation of colour courses
- White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
- Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
- Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
- Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
- Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
- Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
- Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
- Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
Very limited entry on the day - contact Alistair Duguid, Team Captain by 11 June.
Entry will be £5 for TAY (non-competitive) members - this is a slightly reduced rate. ra_duguid@ yahoo.com
Safety and Risk
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.
Our forests are at risk from tree pests and diseases. These can dramatically affect the health of our trees, upsetting the delicate ecosystem balance and devastating large areas of woodland.
Pests and diseases hitch a ride in mud and debris on shoes, paws and tyres, ending up in new forests. Here, they can spread rapidly in environments with no natural resilience.
