STAG Dark Park Series 2015/2016 - League Tables

Class & Club scores are shown below.

Please note that from Event 2 onwards the Bonus Points system is changing. On all Classes no longer shall points be awarded for having visited all your controls in under your time limit - the bonus was +10pts for every complete second under your time limit. Instead if you manage to visit all 15 controls & still have time remaining you can revisit controls again(once only) but the 15th control cannot be revisited as your 16th control. Penalty points of 10pts per second for being overtime still apply.

STAG Cumbernauld Project 2015 Provisional Accounts

Provisional Accounts from the Weekend indicate a small loss. However these accounts do not make any copyright charge for the use of STAG map normally £1 per map & having invested £3000 in the £6000 cost of the Cumbernauld map itself this is disappointing.

Entry fees were set at a reasonable rate but with a slightly less than expected entry the income generated didn’t cover the expenses incurred.

For your information every event needs to pay a BOF Levy irrespective of the entry fee i.e. £1 Seniors & 30p Juniors. SOA Levy is similar if the set Entry Fee exceeds £8 which it didn’t so no SOA Levy to pay.

Total Income from “O” Entries £1,986.55 + Entry On Day £98.00 = £ 2084.55.

ExpenditureSchool Use                                   £ 368.30
First Aid Cover                                 £ 244.80

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.
