QR codes, a map and a marker pen later and they have ensured all the controls are legible once again. If youContinue reading “Duthie Park POC”

Gramp Champs and JD2C Event We hope you enjoyed running at Scolty.

Results A straightforward event at Hazlehead: just one unmapped abandoned tent between two points – not quite as exciting as the naturist sunbathing in the dunes at Balmedie last year. Olivia had brisk trade at her cake stall, not surprising as we were spoilt for choice and my choice was delicious. Some new faces andContinue reading “Hazlehead Forest Sprint Wednesday 12th April Results”
A “slight twist” was promised and turned out to be a retrO twist so thanks to Stuart for all his hard work checking punch patterns and calculating times and winners the hard way – far more work for him than us playing spot-the-difference copying courses from master maps.

This pair of apes were spotted swinging through the canopy at Crathes this afternoon. There is a banana skin for the first person who can work out which Gramp members are in disguise.
Thanks to everyone who came to the event at Scolty on Friday. The weather held fair and there was no mention of exit polls during the post event analysis.
