The site was all cleared by 6:30pm on Saturday & with the exception of the access track not a piece of litter or any other evidence of us having been there

Our thanks to all competitors & Colin Matheson (SOA Events Manager), Steve Barrett - resurveying & Nathan Stevens - printing (Stirling Surveys); Dougie, his Team & Bob Burrell of Pitlochry Scouts {Marquee Hire}; Tay FD (Forest Access); Alex McIntyre / Andy Chapman {Parking Field} ; Anne Rodger {Tulloch Fields accessed for Orange & Yellow Courses} & Wayne Pearson {First Aid Cover} and of course the Scottish Autumnal Weather we were blessed with.

Once Tay Fd share their harvesting plans with STAG for what remains of the forest, we shall be able to determine possible future use.

Controller’s Report
Well done to all of the competitors on their performances in at both the JHI and the SOL.
A particular well done to those who are not normally competing in tough Scottish working forests.
Graham’s courses made best use of the woodland that the FC has left us and a big thank-you to those who took the time to say that they had enjoyed their runs.
Terry’s organisation together with his ability to utilise local Perthshire contacts ensured a smooth running day.
It was disappointing to see a below par entry for the SOL. I presume that this was at least in part due to it being a Saturday however having driven home on Sunday afternoon through the wind and rain, we certainly got the best of the week-end.
As always it was a pleasure to work with the STAG team who travelled from all corners of the country to put on the event which is only one of a huge number of fixtures organised over the year.

Although there has been some clear felling the natural woodland remains - thanks to the Capercaille !!.
