STAG/CLYDE Evening 5 - Linn Park- 28th April 2016 - Event No.541

Thanks for your support & apologies for the wee delay with the starts. With Jim finishing work at 4:30pm it was always going to be a tight one.
My apologies for the bits of the map (southern part) which had obviously not been surveyed when the original map was produced in 2002. Jim & I discovered the wee path & noticed a boulder on the southern side as we walked along the northern side of the ditch earlier this month. We didn’t notice the other boulders where the actual control was put.

Our Sincere thanks to Gerry & Lorna for Registration & Download ; to Blair, John, Gerry & Simon for helping bring in the SI boxes in an unusual way :) & Jim for planning the courses.
