Monday 13th Sept 2010 STAG Autumn Series 4 Drumpellier CP

Sincere apologies for the cancellation but it just seemed like the weather was going to be WILD!

My immediate concern was for the 40+ Brownies from Chryston who had arranged to join in but I made a decision that their course would be somewhat dangerous because of the conditions especially the high winds.

With everything already packed in the car & the maps printed this still seemed to be the correct decision as the evening moved on.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

A slightly different format for the usual crew - Four of Five Triangles!

7 point cross-country course for the introductory option.

Should anyone wish anything more challenging just ask - I have a huge number of ideas but wish to be home by 9pm (to-night!)


details of the pre-event information


Follow road signs from Bargeddie or Gartcosh


45 minutes allowed. There are 5 Triangles available & you have to visit 4 of them. The decision which one to omit will depend on your own personal strengths within Orienteering.For example Triangle 1 is Controls 31- 41- 51 ; Triangle 2 32-42-52 etc. You may visit the controls which make up the triangles in any order but you must complete a Triangle before moving on to your 2nd, 3rd and then your final one.

Registration 6.15pm > 6.45pm.
Starts from 6.30pm > 7pm.

Entry Fees:

Seniors £2, Students £1.50 & Juniors £1.

Located to the North West of Coatbridge and to the east of the M73, this wee gem of an area has only improved over the years.

Originally used way back in the early 1980s, in fact the first STAG Map of the area was our 5th Colour Map.

Permanent Course on site & only 1 or 2 controls engulfed with Summer Vegetation.
