GRAMP event at Balmedie 5th February

The next Sunday event from GRAMP is a middle distance race at Balmedie with yellow, light green, green and blue courses.

On the blue and green courses, they've added a twist: two or three of the controls will have no control code provided, so you’ll have to find the correct control unit purely from the map and control description.  There will be several false controls placed nearby to try to confuse you! … and each time you punch a wrong control, a 3 minute time penalty will be applied.

Full details on the GRAMP website.
