STAG - Thursday 24th May - Glasgow Spring Series 2012 3rd of 8

STAG hosted the 3rd event at Bellahouston Park on a terrifically SUNNY Evening !!! Many thanks to you all for supporting the event & to GT for assisting in the organisation.

Remember events 4 & 5 are CLYDE led on the next 2 Thursdays.

The courses created involved the use of many of the permanent posts & some other Si Controls.

I don’t seem to have a time for Alice, Robert & Jess also not sure if some of Medium should be on short or vice-versa. Please forward if you wish them to be added in.

The pre-event coaching exercise aka “9 Tree Wood” proved an unexpected hit as a mega serious competition developed with the 3 leading times - if my memory is correct being Arnis 32 ; Robin 33 & Emma 34 seconds respectively.

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.
The Womens’ Annual 10k Run in May finishes in the Park as does The Men’s Health Forum Father’s Day Run each June..
