Compass Sport Cup Qualifying Round, Dumyat (Stirling), March 13th

The Compass Sport Cup qualifying round this year is being hosted by FVO on a new map of Dumyat on the outskirts of Stirling. It will be a high quality Level B event. This is an inter-club competition; however, you need to do your own entry. One club out of ESOC, FVO, GRAMP, INVOC, MAROC will qualify for the finals on Sunday 16 October at Tankersley organised by SYO.   You can enter any course you like, but if you want your result to count towards GRAMP score in the club competition then you need to enter an appropriate course.

There is some information on FVO website; I expect more details will be posted here closer to the time:

Entry via Oentries are now open.  Deadline Friday 4th March

The rules are fairly complicated (see link below if you are interested) and we are not intending to try to organise GRAMP entries.  There are 11 courses:

1 Brown Men Open
2 Short Brown M20- M40+
3 Blue Women Women Open
4 Blue Men M50+
5 Green Women W20- W45+
6 Green Men M60+
7 Veterans Short Green M70+ W60+
8A Junior Men (Green) Men 18-
8B Junior Women (Short Green) Women 18-
9A Orange Men Men 14-
9B Orange Women Women 14-

The first 4 GRAMPs on each course will count towards our overall score. You are allowed to run-up an age class or classes and women are allowed to run as men, but not vice versa.  You are welcome to enter any course you wish but you need to enter an appropriate course if you want your result to count towards GRAMP’s score.  Compass Sport rules etc (unchanged from 2015) can be found at:
http://www.pgopage.co.uk/docs/CSC2015_Rules.pdf

Start times need to be allocated by the club, not the organisers, so if you enter, please let me know (GRAMP treasurer email) if you have a start time preference (early, mid-, late etc).   At this stage I don’t know what start times will be available. Let me know if you need advice on which course to enter.
