We would like to thank all those competitors who supported both the night and day events once again this year. Without you there would be no Tinto Twin. The Staff and friends of Carmichael would like to say a big thank you to all the orienteers who contributed to the “Wear it Pink” collection. Due to your generousity a magnificent £112 was added to the collection for the essential work of this cancer charity.

We hope that the night competitors were not too tired after their run, to enjoy the finger buffet and birthday cake and help us to celebrate our 25th Anniversary event. The cake was spectacular! Thank you to the staff at the Visitor Centre.
It did rain on Saturday night, but things got worse on Sunday morning and those of you who witnesssed the tent taking off in the car park would see Robert and Fiona desperately trying to protect the laptops and other equipment from the elements. Luckily all those seeing our dilemma, rushed to help and the computing team were quickly relocated to safety at the back of Jan’s camper van.

We would like to thank the landowners - Dick and Trish for use of Carmichael and the Warnock’s from Rachan Home and Dreva Farms, and our Controller’s Ted and Terry.

One collective thank you to all those individuals from numerous clubs who helped us to put on 2 badge events in one weekend. You know who you are and we are very grateful.

If anyone would still like to purchase an anniversary t-shirt, please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and one can be delivered to you at an event in the near future. Small, medium, large or ex-large. Colour - heather and only £7.
