Foggieton Forest Sprint 13th April Results

Results RouteGadget A dry but chilly night saw old and new test their wits on the twists and turns of the many paths and linear features at Foggieton. Many thanks to David for all his IT wizardry, and to Gareth for helping with control collecting (and to those who also offered to help – alwaysContinue reading “Foggieton Forest Sprint 13th April Results”

Dunnottar Woods 5th May Results

Yellow Results SplitsForest Sprint Results Splits Thank you David once again for doing the honours for Dunnottar (although I suspect it may have been a sneaky ulterior motive involving proximity to one of the finest chippers in the NE that may have decided you to volunteer? 😉 ) Some lovely photos of the afternoon andContinue reading “Dunnottar Woods 5th May Results”

Tollohill Woods Wed 21st April Results

Yellow Results, Forest Sprint Results Splits Shire’s turn to experience that weird feeling of sort of knowing what you were doing but also knowing you don’t really know at the same time. Took most of us until a couple of controls in before it became second nature again. Thanks to David for providing us withContinue reading “Tollohill Woods Wed 21st April Results”

Hazlehead Wed 7th April Results

Real O Events!!!! YES, they are finally happening! Here are results from Hazlehead – big thanks to David Esson for cranking the SI controls into BST-mode and persuading them they wanted to go and sit in a wood again after their cushty number sitting in his flat all this time and to Gareth Yardley forContinue reading “Hazlehead Wed 7th April Results”

Results    Splits    Routegadget     Cumulative scores so far A two-hander tonight brought to you by Jonathan Smith who planned and David Esson who ran the event on the ground with a little help from some friends.

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 courseContinue reading “Forest Sprint 1 @ Tollohill 10/4/19”

Forest Sprint @ Mulloch 9/5/18

Many thanks to all those who made it to Mulloch tonight, especially considering the not-quite-perfect weather conditions. Thanks also to Gareth, Bob and Zoe for help control collecting. Results Well done to those who recognised the photo locations, may be we should put on some photo-O too! Note on forest rides. Mapped rides are theContinue reading “Forest Sprint @ Mulloch 9/5/18”

Forest Sprint Series 2018 – Weds 11th April to 16th May

Sprint O is great fun – lots of controls in quick succession in a relatively short distance and fast running alone is no use in this discipline if it’s of the headless chicken variety! You really have to look closely at the map, make snap decisions about route choice, execute them quickly and cleanly whileContinue reading “Forest Sprint Series 2018 – Weds 11th April to 16th May”

Forest Sprint results from Foggieton 10th May

A pleasant cool and dry evening.  A bit difficult to squeeze a 3 km course into such a small area.  Thanks to Helen Rowlands for helping with registration/download, Dennis, Bob and John for collecting controls and Rob Hickling for help with map corrections.

Dunnottar Forest Sprint 26/4/17 Results

The midges weren’t actually biting, the notorious mudslides of Dunnottar weren’t anywhere near as bad as previous years, Jon beat Ewan by 2 seconds, the injury wasn’t a broken ankle as feared and Rachel and Pete had their chips. I’d call that an evening full of results. Dunnottar FS 26-4-17.pdf Many thanks to Mark HammondsContinue reading “Dunnottar Forest Sprint 26/4/17 Results”

Hazlehead Forest Sprint Wednesday 12th April Results

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”

Forest Sprint Series 2016 Final Results

Overall results after 6 events. Congrats to Jake Chapman and Sarah Dunn on a Maroc double win this year. Hope you all enjoyed these short courses although I think maybe we need to choose our areas with care for next year as some were not really that sprinty. And Balmedie wasn’t that foresty either IContinue reading “Forest Sprint Series 2016 Final Results”

Forest Sprint Dunnottar Woods 27/4/16 – Results

Thanks to all who came along tonight. The sleet, snow and hail held off for the evening so apart from being a tad slippy underfoot all was well (pity same can’t be said for the afternoon!). Some pretty fast times recorded and some more mature members keeping the young ones off the top slots forContinue reading “Forest Sprint Dunnottar Woods 27/4/16 – Results”

Scolty Forest Sprint 9/5/14 Results

Plan a bog standard TD3 course I was told. So I did. And quite successfully judging by the state of many of you but the prize for overall coverage and gloopiness has to go to poor wee Joel Gooch who looked like a giant had picked him up and dunked him in chocolate custard upContinue reading “Scolty Forest Sprint 9/5/14 Results”
