Foggieton Post-AGM Advent Calendar Score 9/12/12 – Results

Thanks to Anne for setting up a fiendish little Advent Calendar -based exercise to tax our Sunday brains as well as stretch our legs. Just the effort of spotting the next number in sequence on such a crowded map was bad enough! And thanks to Rob for bending his brain “doing the math” in the back of the car to give us our results almost instantaneously.     Results.

Grampian Mountain Challenge 2012 Glen Dye – Results

Overall results    Day 1 – Splits   Day 2 – Splits   Routegadget

UPDATE 21/11/12 – Routegadget is now loaded up, separately for the Forest sections and the Hill sections of both days.  PLEASE would all competitors take the time to add their routes, as this will help the planners improve future events.  You can also analyse the splits using Splitsbrowser and Splitalyzer.

More photos from Ali Robertson who would also like to thank Maroc for the use of their controls.

UPDATE 20/11/12 – couple of extra sponsor acknowledgements and a message from the organiser added at the end of this post.

More photos here from Donnie Mann     Some photos here from Sarah Dunn
And if you can’t spot yourself in all those then try this lot of photos from Ian Hamilton
Photos from Simon Caldwell

We were incredibly lucky with the weather again for the GMC with blue skies throughout and I’m told “Good event – lots of happy faces at the download” so I’m guessing everyone enjoyed it whether or not they managed to bag a prize (like a certain happy chappy pictured below).

Big thank you to Sean for an ace bit of organising again (see his comments below), Ali for the planning and Ian for controlling and acting as official photographer again. We’ll give you a link to the rest of his photos just as soon as he’s had time to go through them all and if any of you took photos en route you’d like to share then email them or the link to flump@care4free.net please.

GMC 2012 Overall results    Day 1 – Splits   Day 2 – Splits   Routegadget

A big thank you to Haglöfs, Braemar Mountain Sports, Cotswold Outdoor and Tiso for donating prizes to help make the GMC that little bit more special.

     

Sean the Organiser says:

Well done to all the runners for coping with the short days, long heather and freezing nights. While there were a few scratched legs everyone enjoyed themselves and enjoyed the glorious east coast weather at its best. Thanks to everyone who knew their limits and either dropped out or sped up! Everyone finished within the course cut off time on Sunday.

Thanks to all the marshals from Scouts, Gramp and Cosmic Hillbashers, and to Deeside and Gordon Scouts for the equipment and help setting up. Scout leaders again ran the catering and on their behalf we’re pleased to donate £120 to the Braemar Pipe and Chanter group to help fund new instruments for their young pipers. Thanks to Fasque Estates for permission to use their land and to all the companies who provided prizes.

Watch this space for GMC-2014!!

Autumn Urban Sprint Series 2012

Another great little series again this year thanks to good planning and enthusiastic competitors with some very keen competition at the top of the league between various M18/M20/M21s and one or two older Ms with youthful legs. Calum McLeod and Naomi Lang had the Junior side sewn up and Carolyn McLeod met her match in newcomer to the sport if not the area, Ruth Crewe (Cosmics).

As well as the GRAMP Urban stalwarts we also had several incomers join the league half way through (studying or working in the area this year) and if they had been able to attend more events then the leader board would probably look vastly different. Unfortunately we can’t really delay the start of the Urban Series to accommodate Uni term time as it’s already pretty dark by 7pm even early October and we run the risk of becoming an Urban Night League (although I bet we’d get lots of takers for that anyway as everyone seems to enjoy it so much - even those who aren’t uber-competitive and laugh the whole way round (you know who you are, Blaggers!!)).

Autumn Urban 2012 Final League Results   

*Five people didn’t punch control no.9 (E thicket, inside west part). It was well described and I think they didn’t look in quite the right place. Their split times show that they did search around a bit! The results don’t show them as mispunched as we’re feeling generous…

***************************************************************************

Westburn Park was done as map memory as it’s such a small area. Unfortunately the long legs were cropped so that it wasn’t obvious there are entrances to the Victoria Park side at east and west ends and a lot of folk were seen legging it over the uncrossable walls and fences on either side of the main road. Do you know the difference in the symbols and why they’re marked as such? How can we spread the word to newcomers to urban O?

Crathes event Level C – 12 August 2012: Results

On a warm day at Crathes, over 135 people enjoyed running Nick Hale’s courses, carefully controlled by Steve Spencer with our thanks. Well done for getting out and doing some sport, not just watching the Olympics on the box! Appreciation to organiser Adrian Will and timing team Jayne MacGregor and Ian Hamilton, plus all the other Gramp helpers. We hope you enjoyed the refreshments in the Crathes tea-room afterwards. Routegadget and Winsplits are now loaded up.

6/6/12 Message from the Organisers:
Firstly, thanks go to Nicholas Barber of CLOK who interrupted his first leg run to help Steve Feltbower of FVO who suffered an injury on the far side of the map but still managed to limp a fair way home before our rescue team caught up with him.

Secondly, apologies for the download queue caused by networking problems but most of you seemed to find it quite a sociable wait as there was much chatting and comparing of routes going on. With no network we couldn’t make any changes until the download deluge slowed to a trickle so thanks also for your patience in waiting for name changes and mp checks/reinstatements to show in the printed results.

Thirdly, another big thanks to all our GRAMP helpers, MOR for doing the car parking (although by their own admission the biggest problem was making sure cars avoided the lapwing nests) and Lucy Fryer of AROS who volunteered ages ago as she wanted to learn a bit more about Emit and OS2003 relay software and ended up doing a fantastic job all day on download for us.

Jubilee Five – Scolty MTBO

The third event in the Jubilee Five festival of orienteering in Royal Deeside was the mountain bike orieteering competition, held in Scolty and Blackhall Forest, south of the River Dee near Banchory.

Conditions were as near as perfect as you could ask for – dry trails (mostly…though John Mason managed to fin a wet ditch to fall into!), blue skies, fluffy white clouds, nice sunshine, cool temperatures (14C). Fifty-nine riders spread across three courses showed us how mountain biking should be done. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves whilst discovering that Scolty and Blackhall are particularly well blessed with those brown line things called contours. This makes route choice on a MTB much more interesting.

My thanks to Planner (Richard Oxlade), Controller (Sarah Dunn) and my helpers Duncan Grassie, Josh Dudley and Rachel Scott.

RH

(For anyone still wondering about the non-competitive nature of this event, the Forestry Commission were concerned for the safety of other forest users on a busy (for Scolty) Bank Holiday so granted permission for our event providing the urge to speed recklessly was removed by making it an event rather than a race.)

Glen Dye Level C 27/5/12

Results    Splits   Routegadget

BOF results loaded but for some reason not picking up non-comps. Will correct after Jubilee 5 and hols.

Another scorcher! 27 degrees this time – too hot for Rachels and a few others judging by the results. Was glad to reach the relative cool of the coast as it was a mere 17 degrees in Stoney.

Thanks to Helen for a cracking first crack at planning a “proper” event (I was enjoying it until my head boiled over at number 17!) and Evgueni for organising. Also to all helpers including Tessa Campbell of MAROC who wasn’t afraid to tell Mark Nixon to try not to win the Green in too fast a time as it would stymie son Iain’s chances of getting Gold Standard – again!
Bit of a conundrum this – Mark is using our events to train for Middle Distance and we’re happy to assist in any way we can but it obviously has unforeseen consequences. Answers on a postcard please (but not to me!!)

Ticks: I’m up to 13 free range wrigglers now – anyone want to declare their tally for the Golden Tweezers?

I received an email from Jan Strandskog wondering whether anyone actively tries to stop ticks from settling rather than just pick them off after the event and, if so, what do they use? The only product he knows of is one sold in Europe called Centaur but as it’s rather expensive to buy online (after carriage and tax) he’s looking for anyone going to Europe to buy him a bottle from a chemists to bring back to try out. Leave a comment if you do use anything or are willing to be a mule for Jan.

2012 Forest Sprint Series

Another great little series was wrapped up on Friday 25th May. GRAMP’s Sasha Chepelin M16 managed to finish 2nd thereby securing his title of 2012 Forest Sprint Winner, closely followed by Callum Roberts M18 and Josh Dudley M18 tying for 2nd which means Evgueni was forced into 4th in the end.

The youngsters also dominated the Women’s battle too with Frances Wright W18 taking first place, with Evelyn Mason W16 in second and GRAMP’s Katrina McLeod W18 in third. If Katrina had managed to make it to four events like the others who knows what the result may have been?

Thanks to all the organisers from both clubs for providing another chance to round off the working week with a therapeutic scamper round!

Summer Series 2012

A big thankyou to all organiser/planners for braving baking sun/midges/downpours to put on this year’s series and also to Sean, Neil and Anne for officiating or keeping the scores in various ways.

Overall points and Awards for whole series.

Congratulations to all Award winners, but special mention must go to Ondrej Masek who took part in all 15 events. We think this must be an all-time record. Anyone who did not collect their certificate etc at Templars should contact Anne Hickling to pick them up. She will bring them to the autumn sprint events on the next few Wednesdays.

Phew! What a scorcher – the car dashboard showed 22 degrees as we drove away at 3pm so congrats to everyone for not succumbing to heat exhaustion although there may be one or two tingly noses this evening?

Thanks to Gen for giving us a twirl around different parts of the area for a change, the Austs for controlling  and Jayne and her team for registration and computing as seamlessly as ever. Did you try a cake from Laura’s stall in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind? Yummy! MAROC have got some serious competition there I reckon.

Please accept the Planner’s apologies for the mix-up with the control descriptions on the Green course. The last minute change of venue forced some rather rapid planning and checking and somewhere along the line a previous version of the course was used to produce the loose control descriptions.

It has been decided to void legs 2 (225 to 158), and 3 (158 to 139) on Green, and to reinstate anyone who went to 163 instead of 158. Once again, apologies to anyone affected.

Click here to jump through to the DNC blog to see who won what lavish prizes for the 2011/12 DNC and the overall results. Most nights saw frantic competition in relatively mild conditions compared to last year’s snowy epics – (although I think some folk secretly miss the buzz of floundering through deep drifts with their torchlight bouncing off and their breath hanging in illuminated clouds in front of their face – atmospheric yes but rubbish for trying to navigate and run quickly!)

Post-AGM Bi-O-thlon @ Kirkhill 11/12/2011

Splits   Simple results and notes. Glad to see Ewen practically did the Bike O section (as opposed to impractically which would presumably mean by unicycle?) but dismayed to see that Carolyn won the Short Bi-O course on foot alone!! (Although maybe she should be DSQed as she didn’t wear a helmet or have to figure out how to carry her Emit brikke and steer at the same time?)

Thanks to Dave and family for cheerfully manning a somewhat chilly registration/transition while the rest of us had great fun battling through ice-encrusted puddles and braving death-defying descents on our bikes before taking off on wobbly legs for the Foot O section where more than one experienced orienteer was caught out by the control on the top of a big crag. Dagnabbit!

Did you enjoy it? Should we try more Bike O events? Leave a comment below and let us know.

VHI 2011 Relays – partial results

Firstly, I would like to offer a wholehearted apology for the error that caused us to void the relay result and, by consequence, the overall Veterans Home International 2011 event. Quite simply, we made a labelling error for the all of the 2 Women + 1 Man category courses, i.e. on 4 of the 8 Courses. This resulted in competitors being given the wrong length courses for their legs, which meant that many senior veterans were sent out on much longer courses than anticipated, which after their efforts to conquer Birsemore Hill yesterday was, I’m sure, less than welcome. There was also confusion for later leg runners, who also had to run out of class and, no doubt, a severe feeling of let-down. The fact that this problem was greeted with such grace, forbearance and, amazingly, sympathy from competitors was truly humbling. I can’t say how grateful we all are for your responses, especially as I know of the long lengths many people went to to come and represent their country.

Following consultation, the Team Managers agreed that the preferred option was to not to attempt to declare a result on the basis of the remaining classes and as a result, there are no 2011 Relay, Overall or Stonewall Trophy Winners. It was felt that the extent of the voided courses was such that any result would not be fair. If the courses voided had crossed both categories, there may have been a case for declaring a result.

We will publish the results of the ‘valid’ relay courses and attempt to reconstruct the splits of those who ran on the wrong course so that we can provide a set of results by gaffle.
I hope you all enjoyed the Individual Event, narrowly won by England, the social evening in Ballater, that the problems on the Relay did not ruin your weekend and that at least some of you enjoyed running around what is a beautiful forest on courses that attracted praise from the competitors.
I’d like to record my thanks to all of the Team from Grampian and Mar Orienteering clubs that put the events together for their hard work and commitment as well as the landowners and the staff at the Lodge on the Loch.

Once again, please accept my apologies and I wish you all luck if you are selected next year.

Regards,
Pete Lawrence
2011 Veterans Home International Coordinator

Autumn Urban Sprint Series 2011

We decided to experiment this year by keeping the regular Wednesday pm slot going through the autumn by using some of our urban maps. Not quite as popular as the Summer Series but we still had a regular core of runners including some of our Cosmic friends who, although being more used to running flat out over the hills, still seemed to really enjoy the extra dimension of getting their heads around such detailed maps.

Summer Forest Sprint Series 2011

GRAMP organised 3 out of the 6 Summer Forest Sprint Series 2011. Results from our events shown here – the Tollo Hill results are/were with the rest on the Maroc website for reasons I’ve forgotten now.

Sprint O is great fun – lots of controls in quick succession in a relatively short distance and fast running alone is no use in this discipline if it’s of the headless chicken variety! You really have to look closely at the map, make snap decisions about route choice, execute them quickly and cleanly while all the time trying to read a jiggling map and watch where your feet are going. Give it a go.
