Next Event: STAG Autumn Series 3 - Tollcross Park - Thursday 3rd Sept - No.520

Back we go east to Tollcross Park where it all began way, way back in 1980 !

New ISSOM map by Stirling Surveys @ 1:5000 makes its debut.

To maximise the area the format for Medium & Long shall be 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.

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.
