STAG Autumn Series 3 - Tollcross Park - Thursday 3rd Sept - No.520

The New ISSOM map by Stirling Surveys @ 1:4000 made its debut & was well received.
However it now turns out that for the past 13 years we have been using Tx at 1:4000 & not 1:5000 as shown on the maps & by the bar scale.

To maximise the area the format for Medium & Long was the fabulously confusing Numerical Triangles ! For example Controls 31-41-51 make Triangle 1 ; so 35 - 45 - 55 makes Triangle 5 and so on.

Medium complete 4 Triangles of choice & Long 7 Triangles but there needs to be an additional challenge doesn’t there !! The sting in the tail for the Long course is that if the third “corner” of your triangle is eg a “30” the next Triangle needs to begin with either a “40” or a “50” all the way through the 7 Triangles :)

Short course shall have a standard course with controls 31 > 37 to be visited in numerical sequence but there were no takers.

Map of Glasgow - Tollcross Park MapTerrain description

New Permanent Course installed, map updated Nov 2016 & relaunched in 2017.

Tollcross Park was the first Glasgow Park mapped by STAG back in 1982 and played a vital part in the early development of the Club.

Previous attempts to establish a permanent course in 1986 and 1988 were unsuccessful but with the regeneration of the Park underway we are again hopefully that the 2016 Course shall be a success.

Park History:

Acquired in 1896 covering 96 acres with extensive rose and floral displays.
