STAG 616 - Autumn 2 - Wednesday 15th Aug 2018 - Kelvingrove Park

Busy evening. Thanks to Gerry & to Simon Beckett for planning his 1st Event.

Help from Dave Robertson (CLYDE) & Alison Campbell (BASOC) appreciated as was the STAG Squad of Karen, Peter, Jo & Colin who assisted Simon clearing up.


When you look at the Splits you will see on Long Course that there are 2 Coded 43. Last week Box 43 was “dead” and so box 40 was reprogrammed as “43” for our previous event. Box 43 then sprung back to life but this evening it flashed but didn’t bleep. The problem was that I forgot to reprogrammed Box 40 back to Code 40.

Thank you for your support.

Pre-register - Send an email to info@stag-orienteering.co.uk if you can by 10pm on the Sunday pre-ceding the event.

The Map - Shall have been recently updated by Terry & printed on waterproof paper by Stirling Surveys.

Your Course - The format is CROSS COUNTRY i.e. You are instructed which controls you have to visit & in what order.

Map Overprinting - This evening everyone receives the same overprinted map with further information about Courses printed on the map. This is an attempt to minimise map wastage. If you wish you may join up controls with lines before you begin

Equipment In Use - STAG use Sportident Timing Equipment & Autodownload Programme. Electronic Timing Fingers can be borrowed for each event but shall be charged at cost if lost or damaged. Mini-Orienteering Flags tend to be used & to safeguard our kit the Units are likely to be padlocked to a secure location. When checking in at each control hold the Electronic Box in your free hand, pull so that the cable goes tight & so that your SI Finger can fit into the open socket on the box. Code Numbers are shown in Large Print on the top of each Electronic Box.

Splits Print Out - A splits print out of your times per leg & the overall time shall be presented when you download.

Results - We aim to have results on our website by 10pm on the evening of the event but this is determined by size of entry & by the time we are packed up & grab a bite to eat.
