Events/Results, Summer Forest Sprint Series

Forest Sprint 1 @ Tollohill 10/4/19

Results  Splits

RouteGadget (sorry, can’t quite get all controls correctly centred on features but close enough)

Many thanks to David Esson for planning at relatively short notice and hope you all enjoyed your scamper around Tollohill. It’s easy to get confused with all those paths criss-crossing as well as the loopy nature of the course and several old hands got caught out.
(And oddly when I fired up Firefox tonight there was a very apt quote at the bottom of the screen: “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” Douglas Adams.)

Apologies for the lack of splits printouts initially. A certain old hand caught himself out while trying to set things up in a rush last night. Thanks to Bob Daly for helping collect controls.

See you all next week at Glen O’Dee.

By the way, Tollohill area is subject to various Local Development Plan Bids which would eventually surround the wood with housing. Take a look at this website and follow the links for more information on bids KN069 to 72. Although not impinging into the wood itself much it looks like we’d lose the north end of the area (but gain some urban territory to mix and match?) but more importantly wildlife would lose significant corridors in and out of the woods.

  1. It was Bob Daly who helped collect in the controls.
