Map of Glasgow - Linn Park Map

STAG 630 - Dark Park 3 - Wed 14th Nov 2018 - Linn Park, Results

After a horrid day the evening proved very pleasant.

My thanks to Peter for planning the courses.

It appears that someone decided that “57” was hung too high and took it out of its raised position & restaked it in the ground. This was deliberately hung high due to the fallen trees on the outer eastern edge of the vegetation change.
When collecting in the controls I repaced the veg boundary from the north where it hits the track & reassured myself the siting was correct .

Thanks for your support.
Income 91. Expenditure BOF Levy 30. STAG Map Royalty 20. Map print & postage 20. Surplus 21.

GPC 2018 - Change to format for STAG’s Future Stars Competition

My apologies but due to an oversight on my part this year the STAG Future Stars Competition shall now be based on the results from Races 2 & 3.

The issue relates to Race 1 accessing a part of the Commonwealth Village & thus being partially Urban based, the insurance requirements do not allow those under 16 years to compete.

Map of Glasgow - Hogganfield Loch Map

STAG 629 - Dark Park 2 - Wed 31st Oct 2018 - Hogganfield & Lethamhill GC, Results

Our luck with the weather ran out this evening. How wet was it ? Well the back road at Provan Gas Works was almost under water so it was substantial.

Thanks to Fredrik & Marta for their support. I have no idea why the wee printer worked for the older type of SI fingers but not for any others; everything was however in the STAG Download Box.

Income 52 - Levy 22.50 - Map Royalty - 15 - Map Printing 15 = loss of 50p.

STAG’s Maps & Permanent Course Maps - 27th October 2018 - inc support materials

Currently copies of STAG’s permanent courses, with the exception of Pollok CP, can be obtained in 2 ways.
Blank copies of STAG maps are also available to purchase but please note that to actually set out Orienteering Markers requires formally permission from the landowner.

Updated Audit 28th October 2018 - Missing Posts : Bellahouston No. 11; Queen’s Park Post 2 still OOBs due to Scottish Water fenced off enclosure ; Missing Nos. 6, 11, 14, 15 & 17; Springburn No.10 ; Hogganfield No.7. What is most mystifying is that of the 9 posts @ 7 of the sites there is no evidence of any posts everbeing there ???
