3 GRAMPs win at 2011 Scottish Score Champs

Well done to 3 GRAMPS who won Scottish Score Championship status at Stirling today (27/11/11) – Tim Griffin M45, Dave Armitage M60 and Katrina McLeod W18. Also to Sam Gomersall M50 who came second behind Martin Dean (which is as good as winning in my book as the area is Martin’s back yard!!) πŸ˜‰
The ingenious trade-off between fast grass and tarmac around the University Campus coupled with the steeper rougher terrain to the north made it quite difficult to judge how long you thought you’d take in each area and to decide whether to do the Campus loop first with fresh legs or to leave it to last to stagger through on the way to the Finish. Another nice touch, that caught many folk out, was the inclusion of several of the highest scoring controls very close to the Start/Finish rather than in the furthest corners of the map as is often the case. Those that took a moment to read the instructions and map carefully before pegging off were rewarded with some unexpected easy hits – good for the confidence and ego!
