STAG’s 20th Anniversary Glasgow Parks Championships
116 orienteers supported the 20th Edition of STAG's 3 Parks In A Day Event with competitors representing AYROC (3), BORDERLINERS (2), CLYDESIDE (16), East Lothian (3), Edinburgh Southern (29), FORTH VALLEY (19), Guildford (1), INTERLOPERS (4), INVERNESS (1), Kingdom of Fife (2), Lakeland (1), Loch Eck (7), MAR (1), Roxburgh Reivers (2), South London (2), TAYSIDE (2), TINTO (1) & 5 with No Club & of course STAG (17).
Inclement weather didn't deter anyone & the 3 venues of The Commonwealth Village & Cuningar Loop, Tollcross Park & Drumpellier Country Park provided both a demanding physical test as well as technical challenges.
A very well attended prizegiving was held at Townhead Community Centre where the participants were full of praise for this extravaganza STAG produce year after year with the assistance of Robin & Sheila Strain.

Due to other difficulties out with STAG's control, the bespoke souvenirs were not presented on the day but look out for orienteers wearing the distinctive Yellow & Blue Hats at events in early 2019 & let them tell you why they support the event year after year after year. Plans for 2019 are already under discussion & we would hope that orienteers from the missing Scottish Clubs - MOR, GRAMP, BASOC & SOLWAY - will consider attending the 21st hosting of this unique experience as well as many more orienteers from England, Wales & Europe !!!
