Round 8 – Back from holiday and visiting a local place… Clue: A-mazing! – Same as usual Location Year and what event?
The Gramp MapRun Factory (Rachel) has been busy over the last couple of weeks and we now have several more courses uploaded courtesy of Sarah Dunn. From Aberdeen Uni and Perwinnes Moss (4 variations Easy to Tech) down to Stonehaven via Cove.
Rachel has plans for Dunnottar Woods and Aberdeen Street Art Trail next. More ideas are being worked on by a couple of other Gramps too and we’re open to suggestions for either areas to use or courses to convert. Ping an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get your requests/offers in for either MapRun or lowkey trad courses as we start to prepare for travel restrictions being lifted even further.
And the ‘ding’ bit? That’s how Tim Griffin described the noise his phone made at each control when test running Perwinnes Moss.
Due to the many ongoing uncertainties caused by Covid, we have decided to postpone the GMC until 2021 probably still in November again. More information to follow later in the year.
We know this will be a disappointment to many, not least our regulars from south of the border who have been looking forward to treating themselves after Lockdown, but we feel it better to wait and be able to make concrete plans and proper preparations rather than play “will it, won’t it” for the next few months.
Sarah Dunn of Scottish Orienteering is championing this mobile based version of orienteering using your phone’s GPS capabilities to track and time yourself while running one of our MapRun courses. Upload to Strava too so you can challenge your Stravamates.
