Resident of Springburn Park

STAG Autumn 2 - Thurs 18th Aug - Event No.547-Springburn Park - DUO

Thanks to Ida, Gerry, Rafaela, John McK & John R for all their help.
Results now available. The Autodownload programme for SCORE Events will not show Controls more than once so the second “60” on the Long does not appear on html file.

Please note that Control 32 is a Snow Leopard & not a Tiger or even a Bear.

Please note that the Autodownload Programme is not clever enough to check the “79” totals so this has been done manually.

Thanks for your support. Please pop your name etc onto “O” Entries if you hope to come along to Drumpellier CP next Thursday.
