Monday 26th April 2010 - STAG Spring Series 2 - Pollok CP

Thanks for your support.
Congratulations to D.Gunning on his victory scoring 5570pts in a time of 23.45; 2nd Tobi Watson 5570pts / 26.51 & 3rd Rick Richardson 5570pts / 27.14.
Full results below - moral of the story is don’t be late in a 30 minute Score Event !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An enlarged scale 1:5000 was prepared for this event. 16 Controls coded 31 > 35 ; 41 > 45 ; 51 > 55 & 60. Pointage was rated based on location of actual site & distance from Start/Finish.

Each value was 10 times the Code Number eg Code 41 was worth 410pts.
Penalties were mega severe - lose 100 pts for every 6 seconds over time so if 60 seconds late you lost 1000pts.

Map of Glasgow - Pollok Country Park MapTerrain description

Glasgow’s largest park has undergone a transformation & the Orienteering Permanent Course is a welcome addition to the facilities available to the public.

The City Council’s rhododendron project to contain the spread of this vegetation ended in 2009 but did not result in every rhododendron bush being shredded.
