STAG Dark Park 2 - Thurs 3rd Dec 2015 - Bellahouston Park - Event No.527.

So much for the rain not reaching Glasgow - this was a VERY WET event so congratulations to the 17 brave souls who survived the swamps & quagmires of Bellahouston Park.

Our new bonus system doesn’t seem to work in Sportident but I think there may be a way* however I have just published results & then added an additional table below showing total points & penalties. John is working out League positions after 2 events but it looks like Alastair & Lizzie still have 100% records :)

Thanks to Gerry & John for all their help.

* In Condes, once a control is assigned to a course it disappears from the available menu. I think that a possible way around this is to hang a 2nd SI unit with a different code on the T-Bar but this Code/Circle would not be printed on the map but will be incorporated into the computing side of the event.
I may try this next Thursday @ Pollok to see if it works.

Map of Glasgow - Bellahouston Park MapTerrain description

Permanent course now repaired & map updated. Re-launched in 2017.

The 1985 GPS event was followed 4 years later by the 1st Glasgow Parks Summer Series and more recently for thematic and night events.

16 controls make up the permanent course which will take about 60 minutes to walk round. Undergrowth should not be a big issue in the Summer months.

Park History

Bellahouston has been a Park since 1895.
Due to size - 174 acres - the Empire Exhibition of 1938 was staged in the Park.
Only the Palace of Art Building remains.
In March 1978, the IAAF World Cross Country Championships was held and in 1982.
The 1982 visit of Pope John Paul II was commemorated with a Mass in the park.
Bellahouston Sports Complex and the Glasgow Ski Centre are located in the Park.
The House for an Art Lover was opened in 1996 to celebrate the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Other facilities include pitch and putt, bowling, play areas, extensive walled gardens & a new maze.
