STAG Score 3 - Palacerigg CP, Cumbernauld - Sunday 18th January 2015, Results

What a difference a week makes !

Ask those poor souls who survived STAG Score 2’s weather last Sunday if to-day was better !!

Thanks again for your support.
Thanks to Lorna, David, John, Gerry, Scott & Dave R who all helped out at Registration / Control collection.

As it was Control 31 was the only site I hadn’t checked. Originally this was going to be at the track crossing but with the possibility of golfers I felt it would be better to move it in. As it was I put it about 15m west of the actual clearing in an area created by trees falling . If , from your split it appears that you were in the vicinity I have credited you with those 300pts.

Next up is Scottish Night Champs followed the next day by STAG Score 4 both @ Drumpellier CP but with different assembly/parking areas.

STAG Score 2 Cathkin Braes CP - Sunday 11th January 2015, Results

Results updated on Sat 17th January as Bonus Points for clearing all 28 controls & finishing early had not been calculated correctly.

I knew it had been a wet morning but only when I crossed over the River Clyde @ Carmyle did I appreciate the amount of moisture which had fallen from the sky!

Many thanks to Gerry for Registration / Results ; Jim, Ian, Charlie, Tricia, Trevor & Alastair who helped bring in controls this allowing me to get home by 2pm.

This must eclipse STAG’s wettest day at the 1989 British Schools @ Dechmont as I ended up wearing 6 layers - 3 of which were rain jackets!!!! (all total soaked through :( )

If you have not entered next Sunday’s event at Palacerigg yet - Christine :) - please do so before 10pm on Tuesday 13th January 2015.

Regards & Thanks

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.

After hosting our 500th Event at Cathkin Braes CP on 7th December 2014, our thoughts now turn to a busy 2015 - 4 Score Events in January/February ; 5 Night Events in February including the Scottish Night Championships ; Our joint Spring Series with Clydeside Orienteers and schools events still to be finalised.

Formed in 1982, we continue to provide new & innovative ideas to stimulate local and Scottish Orienteering including a 2nd grant application to extend the network of facilities within and around our Dear Green Place!!
