Mike Rodgers of Scottish Orienteering tells us that help is still needed to set up the spectator arena for the World Championships on the Links on Saturday morning. If anyone can spare a little time the orienteers would be very grateful.
The arena build team for Saturday's sprint relay are meeting at the Links quite early with the aim of having it complete by 1100 so ideally volunteers would need to report by 0800 to Chris Huthwaite and Limelight Event Services team leader Gus McLeod down at the Links.
Mike also gave us some information that gurnites planning to observe the World Championships might find interesting:
Spectator car park - Old Farmer's Showfield (Opens 1400)
Athletes car park - Maggot (Opens 1430)
Volunteers Car Park - Next to Sainsbury's (Opens 0800)
