STAG 621 - Club Championships - Wed 12th Sept - Pollok CP

Well folks that is our Autumn Series complete. Thanks for your support.

Special thanks to Gerry & Blair for this evening’s fare but the mystery still remains as to how & why & who moved Control 64.

John will now process the results & I shall publish results of STAG Club Champs thereafter.

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 could be CROSS COUNTRY i.e. You are instructed which controls you have to visit & in what order. The format could be SCORE where you decide the order & sometimes there might be a weighting on controls as well as a time limit.

Map Overprinting - This can vary from having individually printed maps for each Course or everyone receiving the same overprinted map with further information about Courses printed on the map. This is an attempt to minimise map wastage.

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.

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.
