Events/Results, Summer Forest Sprint Series

Hazlehead SS Results 10/6/15

The weather must have brought out the crowds as John was out of all maps by the end of the evening with quite a few new people turning up and giving it a go. Nobody managed to fall in the ditch on the long and short tech but many got caught out by the fence around the large grass area on the way to the four controls to the South of the main park. And in spite of one control going missing for a while it was found so all kit handed to the Andersons for next week.

Apologies to those who tried to go to the car park on the old road out to Countesswells Road. I have now moved the marker on the map ready for next year. Note to future SS planners – please follow the link from the SS series for your event and shout me now if it shows the wrong place by emailing webmaster@grampoc.com.

Next event is at Balmedie 17/6/15 followed by a BBQ and the GAC Big Reveal/Prize Giving. Everyone welcome, we’ll provide fuel, you just need to bring food and drink and some money for *****CAKE*****  Thought that might grab your attention…..

Needing a post BBQ treat? Naomi will be raising money for her World Challenge trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in summer 2016 by selling cakes and fresh lemonade at Balmedie on Wednesday.  Make sure you run hard in those dunes and are suitably hungry and thirsty!

If you can’t make any of these events or prefer to avoid others for the time being, you can join the Mobile O revolution  and download the MapRun app and have a go at some local courses using your phone to time yourself and even navigate with. Visit our MapRun page for instructions and a list of maps.
Or do one of our Temporary Orienteering Courses if we’ve got one out at the moment – see the TOC post for info.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
