STAG Autumn 2 - Thurs 18th Aug - Event No.547-Springburn Park - DUO, Results

Thanks to Ida, Gerry, Rafaela, John McK & John R for all their help.
Results now available. The Autodownload programme for SCORE Events will not show Controls more than once so the second “60” on the Long does not appear on html file.

Please note that Control 32 is a Snow Leopard & not a Tiger or even a Bear.

Please note that the Autodownload Programme is not clever enough to check the “79” totals so this has been done manually.

Thanks for your support. Please pop your name etc onto “O” Entries if you hope to come along to Drumpellier CP next Thursday.

Wow !

Andy The Iceman Returns Victorious !!!

In June STAG’s Mr.Explorer, the one & only Andy Heald ventured up north not to prepare the Iceland Football Team for Euro 2016 but to take part in the OMM Iceland style.
Like our own KIMM / OMM this involved an overnight camp in the middle of nowhere having successfully navigated ones way through the magical terrain.

Word has now reached HQ that accompanied by his brother in law, the bold Andy won the Veteran Class.

STAG send our congratulations & if there are any photos available I shall add them to this report plus any further info from Andy.

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 2016 we shall continue to liaise with Glasgow City Council Environmental Services to upgrade our permanent courses within the City ; Review the usefulness or otherwise of using Sports Centres to sell map packs ; Complete our 1st Dark Park Series with Trophies on offer ; Offer 4 Score Events with our innovative Bonus Points system ;  3 “Serious Training Opportunities (February) on Saturday mornings & several Coaching Sessions throughout the City again on Saturdays in March , April & May.

STAG is not involved in any SOLs or events of similar level in 2016.

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