It certainly gets dark very quickly doesn’t it ?

Thanks to Gerry, Eva, Charlie, Trish & Alastair for their assistance.

What was that stuff falling from the sky???

Not sure what the issue is with Peter’s time. As Control 52 has now been returned & hasn’t lost anytime. I shall contact the SI Guru :)

STAG Autumn Series 3 - Tollcross Park - Thursday 3rd Sept - No.520, Results

The New ISSOM map by Stirling Surveys @ 1:4000 made its debut & was well received.
However it now turns out that for the past 13 years we have been using Tx at 1:4000 & not 1:5000 as shown on the maps & by the bar scale.

To maximise the area the format for Medium & Long was the fabulously confusing Numerical Triangles ! For example Controls 31-41-51 make Triangle 1 ; so 35 - 45 - 55 makes Triangle 5 and so on.

Medium complete 4 Triangles of choice & Long 7 Triangles but there needs to be an additional challenge doesn’t there !! The sting in the tail for the Long course is that if the third “corner” of your triangle is eg a “30” the next Triangle needs to begin with either a “40” or a “50” all the way through the 7 Triangles :)

Short course shall have a standard course with controls 31 > 37 to be visited in numerical sequence but there were no takers.

For many this has been the best GPC to date. There is no doubt the fine, warm weather helped enormously.

STAG Autumn Series Evening 1 - Thurs 20th Aug - Kelvingrove Park - No.515, Results

Thanks for your support & to Simon Beckett for helping me bring in controls. With a wee bit of luck I have managed to salvage results although still dont know why the printer was printing what it did.
Remember Glasgow Parks Champs on Sunday 30th August - you need to enter on line.

* Geoffrey some of your splits didnt register so I have edited your times on 3 or 4 splits as they were blank.

Please also note that as the Start & Finish Units came from STAG’s New Si Kit these were not synchronised with all the other units so the last split is a bit ficticious for many :)

Who are we

In 1982, St. Andrew’s Orienteering Club (Glasgow) was formed in the East End of Glasgow with the primary purpose of making Orienteering a more accessible activity.
By producing maps & hosting events, setting up permanent facilities & facilitating schools’ involvement we continue to promote Orienteering as a
Sport For All & a Sport For Life.

Although we may be numerically small, we do a phenomenal (no sponsorship in the air I’m afraid!) amount of events & continue to pioneer how Orienteering can be embraced throughout education.

In August 2015 following the hosting of The World Championships & Highland 2015 we shall be hosting a series of Thursday evening events. However the main highlight of the early Autumn will be the 17th Glasgow Parks Championships - 3 Parks in 1 Day now timetabled for Sunday 31st August 2015.

This then leaves the Project entitled “What’s It Called ? CUMBERNAULD X 3 ” to be held over the weekend of Saturday 31st October / Sunday 1st November. This will involve 3 disciplines a SPRINT ; a MIDDLE-DISTANCE & a FULL URBAN, the last 2 are part of the 2015 SOUL Series.

A series of Night events are also planned from November >> February 2016.

Formed in 1982, we continue to provide new & innovative ideas to stimulate local and Scottish Orienteering.
