Drumpellier Country Park, 17 February
Drumpellier Country Park is near Coatbridge, to the east of Glasgow. Registration and Download were at Townhead Community Centre, as the Drumpellier Visitor Centre is currently closed for redevelopment. The courses were in the southern part of the park, and the terrain included mixed woodland, open grassland, lowland heath, and some complex contours in old quarry workings, with a good network of paths and tracks and some gentle hills. Controls were spread throughout the southern half of the area, on a variety of features including some recently-dug pits and tall T-shaped posts in dense young woodland.
The weather was dull with some light rain, but mild for the time of year.
