31 July 2017: BKO@Scottish 6 Days - Day 2

Day 2 at the Royal Deeside 2017 6-Day event. Here we see one of the club's juniors (wearing his regional squad O-top) coming in to complete his course. The organisers had built a neat bridge to cross the wall near the finish with steps up and down. But why use the steps when it is quicker to jump! Looks like he has enjoyed his course even if he was out in a rain shower. [Photo by Wendy Carlyle]
