STAG Winter Score - 1st of 4 - Sunday 6th January 2013

STAG’s 1st event of 2013 kicked off yet another busy year for our Club.
My sincere thanks to Gerry & Jackie for assisting in the organisation; to Dave Robertson for offering to help with control collection and to yourselves for supporting this venture.

Your safety is our concern so if you have been to Pollok CP before you have no excuses if you lost the plot and cut through the fields with Highland Cattle within or even crazier cut through the Police Dog Training Area.
So far I have not been contacted by either the Park Officers or Strathclyde Police but this did happen a few years ago.

In this 4 event series, we will be splitting competitors into the same Classes as used in our Glasgow Parks Champs with a small momento being offered to the first 3 in each Class, provided they have completed 3 events.

After some thought, bonus points have been awarded - 10pts per 6 seconds under the hour for those competitors who managed to visit all 28 Controls.

I will create a wee spreadsheet showing each Class & email this out later on.

Map of Glasgow - 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.
