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.

STAG/CLYDE Evening Event 9 - Northside Woods,Cumbernauld - 26th May 2016 - Event No.544, Results

Gerry has supplied me with his print out - the printer worked for him but nothing has been retained in the download box ??? Weird. - Time on Medium was 27.29.

Autodownload doesn’t allow me to input directly so here are Gerry’s splits but the formatting is a bit wonky
1.  2:19 (2nd)    2:19 (2nd)
2.  2:16 (1st)    4:35 (2nd)
3. 1:17 (2nd)    5:52 (2nd)
4. 3:53 (3rd)    9:45 (3rd)
5. 0:53 (3rd)  10:38 (3rd)
6. 1:48 (1st)    12:26 (3rd)
7. 2:51 (1st)    15:17 (2nd)
8. 2:43 (2nd)  18:00 (2nd)
9. 2:24 (1st)    20:24 (1st)
10. 1:01 (1st)  21:25 (1st)
11. 1:55 (3rd)  23:20 (1st)
12. 2:52 (2nd)  26:12 (1st)
F   1:17 (4th)  27:29 (1st)

And then we have poor Big Arnis who moves so swiftly that he has only registered a punch for the Start , a Control 56 - his 2nd control but with a time of 23.51 this must have been from another Event - & the Finish & needs to be Dsqd. He also forgot to clear so there were umpteen other things in his download except the correct controls - makes things very interesting at the top I’m guessing.

New Area , STAG’s 300th Map & yet things do not get any easier. The shape of the area was a difficulty but my apologies for the original Controls 15 & 16 on the Long Course. These were the only 2 sites I did not recce before hand & yet, in my head I knew the boulder which you all ran post with the flag hanging from the sign re. “No Motor Bikes” wasn’t correct because it had to be a BIGGY to be on the map. I have therefore removed the original legs 14 > 15 > 16.

My thanks to Gerry, Jim, Patrick & Ian for their assistance.

STAG/CLYDE Evening Event 7- Drumpellier CP- 12th May 2016- Event No.543, Results

What a glorious evening once again.

Sadly Unit “58” was torn off by vandals & it may be at the bottom of Lochend Loch (the Big Puddle isn’t Drumpellier Loch).

Thanks to Gerry for planning & registration / results ; To John, Alastair & myself for bringing in controls.

There was a mess up with Simon’s splits as it appears his finger was cleared rather than downloaded. What I don’t get is how he still managed to get splits for the last 2 controls. I used Callum’s splits as a guide.

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.
