Day 3 Tuesday 1st August Birsemore.
Day 3 is ‘our’ day shared with ELO, TINTO and STAG.
David Esson, Gareth and Murray have been busy planning courses and showed the team leaders around a rather chilly but scenic Birsemore on Saturday.
As you know it takes a lot of manpower to make sure the event runs smoothly. It is hoped that as many Gramp members as possible will offer to help on the day, if you are not attending the event but would still like to help you will be very welcome. Help is required for parking, starts, arena (including IT), string course.
Please contact Helen on sh.and’at’gmx.com with offers of help, if you have a particular preference just let me know.
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.

One course TD3 or Orange standard, about 3km, with lots of controls and route choice in a relatively small area so full on concentration required just as much as fleet feet. Great for developing Juniors too if accompanied by a TD3 standard runner. Best 4 scores out of 6 will count towards the FSS league results. Overall results can be found on the GRAMP website.
