STAG SCORES return in 2018 but with a twist!

STAG’s very popular SCORE Events return in 2018 with a wee twist for those who just don’t like the challenge that thinking too much can bring or can’t sustain concentration for 60 minutes!
The twist is that Yellow, Orange, Light Green & Short Score (45minutes) options shall be available using the same score map but separate loose Control Control Descriptions for the Colour Coded Courses. Map & Control Descriptions available pre-formal start for those who wish to join up controls & /or plan their strategy.

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 2017 we have continued to liaise with Local Authorities to support our work; Review the usefulness or otherwise of using Sports Centres to sell map packs ; Arranged 4 Score Events ; Supported World Orienteering Day; Piloted the STAG/SOA Membership option ; Offered Orienteering Activity as often as we can ; Hosted our 35th Anniversary Event in our latest new mapped area - Grandtully.

STAG hosted a SOUL based at Cumbernauld Theatre on Sunday 20th August 2017.
The Glasgow Parks Championships returns to its original date of 1st Sunday in December.

Formed in 1982, we continue to provide new & innovative ideas to stimulate local and Scottish Orienteering.
