STAG Score 1 Pollok CP Sunday 8th January 2017 No.559

Superb entry for STAG’s 1st event of 2017. Results now available.

Please note that the times/points for Les & Heather Smithard are the wrong way round.

You will be aware that there was a Scottish Cyclo Cross Event happening at Nether Pollok. Please note that this event had been refused permission from Glasgow City Council & we apologise to any competitors who were challenged by “Officials” of this Cyclo Cross Event.

We are aware of timing errors with boxes 31 & 54 but don’t know why as all were synchronized on Saturday morning. This means that for legs involving “31” or “54” you might get a blank as the time on these units was a minute ahead of the others.

To visit all controls would have covered around 8k in distance; having just measured a route for Score 2 this will be a step up as a minimum distance is around 10k depending on your route not to mention the climb.

Thanks to Gerry for planning; to Alastair, John, Rafaela & Simon for helping Gerry & I clear to area & all home by 2pm .

Thanks for your ongoing support

Map of Pollok Country Park MapTerrain description

Glasgow’s largest park has undergone a transformation & the Orienteering Permanent Course is a welcome addition to the facilities available to the public.

The City Council’s rhododendron project to contain the spread of this vegetation ended in 2009 but did not result in every rhododendron bush being shredded.
