About the Jamie Stevenson Trophy 2014
The Jamie Stevenson Trophy is an annual inter-club competition for Junior orienteers in Scotland. This year the competition will take place at Deuchney Wood, Perth, on Sunday 15th June. This is a great event for juniors of all abilities to meet, socialise and compete against each other. Last year approximately170 juniors from 10 clubs took part.
The competition is open to juniors (M/W20 and under) and courses offered include Yellow, Orange, Light Green and Green. Information about the eligibility of juniors for each course and the scoring system can be found in the JST guidelines (see attached).
Club entries should be submitted using the attached entry form. In order to make this a fair competition, it is not possible for clubs to ask for late entries. Entries on the same course from the same club will be at least 4 minutes apart. If you wish competitors from your club to run in a particular order please can you list them on the entry form in that order. Start times will range from 11.30 until 1.30. Due to the time involved in making up the start lists, the final closing date for entries will be Sunday 1st June. Please can you e-mail the completed form to me at the address below.
There will be entry on the day for adults wishing a run. Please can you give us an indication as to how many on each course so as to help with map numbers.
Parking for the event will be at North Lees Farm, east of Deuchney Wood ( grid ref. NO161234) .As this is a sheep-farming area and lambing will still be in progress, strictly no dogs are allowed. It is not possible to park a coach at the farm, but coaches may drop people off and return later to collect. No problems with minibuses.
