Balnagowan. Deceptively difficult in places with subtle contour detail. Sporadic windblow in places but courses avoid the worst of this. Long course will visit the northern hill. Medium will loop round the south eastern part and will use one control twice so read the map carefully.
Parking is in the same place as Coull event. On the track 1km North of the junction in Aboyne with the B9094 Tarland Road. It can be muddy. Please park carefully and avoid getting stuck or blocking anyone in. There is plenty space on the side of the track further down if the main area at the top is full.
Starts between 6-7pm please. Courses close at 8:30. Results should be up in record time.
Results are now posted on the Gramp website here.

Overall points after 11 events. I’ve given the organisers 50 points for Coull to Peter Craig – is that correct?
Overall points after 10 events. Best nine count. At present only five people on the DNC have done at least nine events, four people on the Mini-Night Cup, so still scope for some significant changes – especially once Matthew and Ewan get back from their Christmas holidays. Three people have done all ten events so far.
Long 5k 11 controls 180 m climb
