ORIENTEERINGLASGOW Permanent Course update Sept 2016

As a NEW Course has still to be installed in Linn Park, the relaunch date is having to be moved back. First launched in May 2002, the courses within the City have been refreshed. Now there are 14 with the posts at Ruchill Park having been removed due to the greatly reduced area because of the New Benview School Campus.

Map packs shall be on sale from Bellahouston Sports Centre, Emirates International Sports Centre, Kelvin Hall International Sports Centre & Tollcross Park Sports Centre once they become available.
Cost remains @ £1 per map pack.

STAG members can request Pdfs for personal use by emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

STAG Autumn 5- Thurs 8th Sept- Pollok CP-Event No.550, Results

Sincere thanks to Gerry for planning & organising the event.

I think I have sorted out the issues with Vivien, Rodry, Alan & J.Hamer. There was a mix up with SI fingers which had been pre-event allocated being reissued but I was not aware of this & had to re-edit names & courses.

Hope it all makes sense now :)

STAG Autumn 4 -Thurs 1st Sept - Kelvingrove Park Glasgow - No.549, Results

Kelvingrove is always a popular venue & I hope the “TRIO” structure gave you a good work out.

Results updated 4pm Friday as Klaas was on Medium & not Short. Congratulations on your win.

My thanks to Gerry, Meghan, Chloe, Blair, Lorna, Simon, Peter & Jim for their help setting the event up, organising registration, download & the clear up.

Sportident cannot automatically check the sequencing required so a manual check has revealed that only Christine on Medium completed the course successfully as if the 3rd point of your Triangle was “30” you had to go to either “40” or “50” ; “40” go to “30” or “50” ; “50” go to “30” or “40”.

Jim went from 41 > 44

Gerry 44 > 41

Liz 53 > 56.

Hope to see you all at Pollok CP next Thursday.

Resident of Springburn Park

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.

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.
