Shooting Greens Event, Sunday 15th November

Here are the Results and Split Times for the local event held on Sunday 15th November, at Shooting Greens, near Feughside.

Enter your routes at our Routegadget2 website.

I’m afraid it was all rather “mizzly” – misty and drizzly … orienteering in the clouds!  But fortunately it didn’t really rain and the complete lack of wind meant that it didn’t feel quite as cold as it might have.  Anyway you seemed to have enjoyable runs.

My very grateful thanks to all my helpers:  Anne, Paul, Jeremy, Chris, Margaret and Carolyn.

Special thanks to control collectors:  Bill, Paul, Bob and Helen.

And our thanks to our neighbouring club, MAROC, for kindly loaning us Shooting Greens to use for this event, after the original venue (Raemoir) could not be used due to forestry work.

 

Courses:

Yellow: 1.9km, 75m climb;   an easy course with controls on (or very close to) paths.

Light Green:  2.7km, 125m climb;  a medium-to-hard difficulty course, using the better runnability forest.

Short Blue:  4.6km, 175m climb;  a hard course, with more climb and in parts tougher underfoot.

 

Officials:

Organiser / Controller  –  Rob Hickling

Planner  –  Helen Rowlands

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.
