STAG Autumn 4 -Thurs 1st Sept - Kelvingrove Park Glasgow - No.549

Kelvingrove is always a popular venue & I hope the “TRIO” structure gave you a good work out.

Results updated 4pm Friday as Klaas was on Medium & not Short. Congratulations on your win.

My thanks to Gerry, Meghan, Chloe, Blair, Lorna, Simon, Peter & Jim for their help setting the event up, organising registration, download & the clear up.

Sportident cannot automatically check the sequencing required so a manual check has revealed that only Christine on Medium completed the course successfully as if the 3rd point of your Triangle was “30” you had to go to either “40” or “50” ; “40” go to “30” or “50” ; “50” go to “30” or “40”.

Jim went from 41 > 44

Gerry 44 > 41

Liz 53 > 56.

Hope to see you all at Pollok CP next Thursday.
