Crathes 6/12 Results

We misinterpreted the messages about “Guides” and “car parks” and weren’t expecting a very well supported open air market going on full swing in the Guides’ field. Thanks to Sam and Lesley for taking it all in their Organiser/Planner stride and organising some impromptu parking marshalling on top of hanging the last few controls thisContinue reading “Crathes 6/12 Results”

DNC 11/11 @ Crathes Results

Short Results SplitsLong Results SplitsRouteGadgetBOF results We parked in the bottom level of the car park initially but swiftly moved up after realising that the heavy rain at ~17:30 was being beautifully backlit by the headlights of cars on the top level and making it look really, really uninviting! We were eventually shamed into gettingContinue reading “DNC 11/11 @ Crathes Results”

Glen Dye snaps and thoughts

Well, who would have thought all that mud, marsh, bog and assorted wet stuff would have produced so many excited, grinning faces? We’re a weird bunch! It’s been a very strange few weeks as what was supposed to have been a simple little local event firstly attracted folk from far, far further afield than we’dContinue reading “Glen Dye snaps and thoughts”

Aberdeen University Urban MapRun 30th Sept 2020 Results

Here’s the results from tonight’s MapRun Event. Great to see so many folk turn up on such after such a wet day, although it did stop raining in the end. Shortest distance covered was 3.1km (I think I measured the shortest route would be 3km) whilst others got more km for their money, some runningContinue reading “Aberdeen University Urban MapRun 30th Sept 2020 Results”

Urban Sprint Cove 2nd Sept Results

ResultsMapRun results/RouteGadget I’ve tried to adjust the times for those who were affected by number 8 being in the wrong position by looking at the traces on RouteGadget to see who obviously spent minutes wandering back and forth. Later starters were tipped off and self-timers would have been blissfully unaware anyway so rather than tryContinue reading “Urban Sprint Cove 2nd Sept Results”

Hazlehead Orienteering Sunday 2nd August

Results Woohoo! We’re back in business with a near-normal event today in the southern part of Hazlehead thanks to David Esson. Looks like post-Lockdown event guineapigs, e-payment gizmo and new SI kit all held up well and you didn’t find the C-19 precautions too bothersome? If you’re a non-member reading this looking for something differentContinue reading “Hazlehead Orienteering Sunday 2nd August”

Hogmany Hangover Handicap 2/1/2020 @ Hazlehead Park

Great to see so many enthusiastic juniors charging round the Yellow (with more than a touch of sibling rivalry going on) and some old regulars coming out of the woodwork for some fresh air and a different challenge on the Score. First time I’ve been thanked for making someone’s brain ache – because “it tookContinue reading “Hogmany Hangover Handicap 2/1/2020 @ Hazlehead Park”

Post-AGM Treas-O-re Hunt 8/12/19 Results

Thanks to Dave Kirk for spending a lot of time tramping round Duthie Park and Ferryhill noting down numbers and details on various objects for us to collect on today’s Treas-O-re Hunt. (Presumably he must have worn his best puffa jacket so as not to look too dodgy as no reports in the P&J aboutContinue reading “Post-AGM Treas-O-re Hunt 8/12/19 Results”

DNC Hazlehead 13/11/19 Results

ResultsSplitsRG (sorry, bit iffy in places as all on an old 1:10,000 map and some of the controls don’t sit quite right but close enough and the Splitsbrowser bit still works fine) Lovely crisp night last night and you could follow footsteps in the frost across the grassy bits. No such easy ride in theContinue reading “DNC Hazlehead 13/11/19 Results”

Summer Series 28/8/19 Templars Park

Results Thanks to Stuart Anderson for rounding off this year’s Summer Series with a trip down memory lane hurriedly trying to glean just enough info from the master map to get us round.

Summer Series 21/8/19 Raemoir

Results The feedback was that the area is pretty rough underfoot so probably not the best for careering downhill, but no injuries and everyone managed to get back to the start. Apologies to Amber Graham who was the only one the end who I didn’t manage to get a time for as the Brikke readerContinue reading “Summer Series 21/8/19 Raemoir”

Summer Series 14/8/19 Mulloch

Results I haven’t distinguished between map memory and the regular course, partly because I think there was some peeking going on, partly because a few people seem to know the area very well*. That said, my hat goes off to the handful of brave souls who went out there without a map for backup!  Apologies toContinue reading “Summer Series 14/8/19 Mulloch”

Summer Series 7/8/19 Perwinnes Moss

Results Many thanks to Zoe and Tim (Maitre de Loops) for a fresh take on Perwinnes Moss in its newly denuded form in the old quarry. Both Technical courses had an option to complete up to 4 memory map mini loops of 2 controls each which went down well with everyone who tried them. Much discussion over tea andContinue reading “Summer Series 7/8/19 Perwinnes Moss”

Summer Series Glen Dye 24/7/19

Results From comments at download and earwigging conversations it seems most folk who took on the contour only map challenge for Long and Short Tech enjoyed the novelty factor and surprised themselves by managing to get their head around all the squiggles more easily than they thought they would and Katrina said she actually enjoyedContinue reading “Summer Series Glen Dye 24/7/19”

Summer Series Foggieton 5/6/19

Results The hawkeyed planner types noticed that the course lengths were overstated due to the map being 1:7500 and not 1:10000, which the software had been told. So either you were glad the rainforest exploration was a bit shorter than expected, you ran really fast, or you were a Garmin/Planner/Performance person (or all three). ApologiesContinue reading “Summer Series Foggieton 5/6/19”
