STAG 614-Wed 1st Aug 2018 - Autumn 1 - Springburn Park

And what a delightful surprise to welcome Rafaela back after her wee break on a bit of a showery evening.
Also a warm welcome to young Thomas Eriksen who we hope to see more of.

The only hiccup was the bold Kevin who forgot to punch the Start & then to show off his fitness he decided to go straight to “66” which he didn’t have to do on the Long Course.

A Pdf is attached to show the Code Numbers of the SI units.

3 options as usual are available
Short Course - visit all 16 controls in any order you wish - approximately 3k.

Medium Course - get your brain in gear ! There are 16 controls on the course - 5 sets of 3 plus a single control with an obviously different CD - with a set as having the same Control Description (but you need to work it out yourself). You have to complete the 5 sets, one set at a time in your preferred order but that Single Control needs to be visited sometime either as your 1st Control or your 16th control or between sets as your “4th” or “7th” or “10th” or “13th” control - approx. 4.5k.

Long Course - Similar to Medium but you MUST visit the single control with the obviously different CD after completing every set of 3 controls - approx. 6k.
