Waiting for the maps
Tuesday, 08 July 2014 12:18

Slowly Croatia open 2014 is aproaching and good news is that we are working hard and in full speed so most of the things could be ready at least one week before start of the event.

We have recieved some questions regarding start time - "zero" start time will be at following hours:

1st stage - 16:00

2nd stage - 17:00

3rd-5th stage - 10:00

If for example on first stage your start time is 75:00 it means that you need to be in front of your (BLUE or WHITE) start corridor at 17:15.

Otherwise we are working hard to have everything ready one week before official start of the event and we hope you will enjoy gorgeous terrains and fun courses on Croatia open 2014. Also, map printing process is done and soon we will have maps in Delnice where each map will be checked. For third year in a row printing is done by well-known Žaket.

Ready for start list
Wednesday, 02 July 2014 07:11

Online entries and accommodation booking is now closed! You may enter Croatia open 2014 now only by sending us data by e-mail. Your entry will be accepted only in case if we have vacant places in category (we plan to have 2 vacant places in each category). We got 577 entries so we expect less stress for the organizer than during last years when we had more than 1000 competitors but we will do our best to even raise the standard of the event!

For now you may take a look at final entries (updated on July 10). Please check your data. In case if your payment status is PARTLY it means that you did not pay for accommodation. Also send us any change of data as soon as possible so we could avoid changes in last moment (such as SI number, name, category etc.)

Also Tihomir Salopek made very good job with course-planning and we hope that all of you will enjoy technicly difficult courses. Course lengths can be found HERE. Note that we will have 2 start positions - white and blue start.

Yesterday map files were sent for printing and everything should be ready on time. Today we will start with making of start list so you might expect it soon to be published on web.

EYOC 2016 and WMOC 2018
Monday, 23 June 2014 20:11

Faced with numerous questions related to preliminary candidature for the organization of EYOC 2016 and WMOC 2018 we would like to anounce club official decision. Orienteering Club "RIS" from Delnice unfortunately have to give up the ability to organize this competitions in Croatia. Administrative obstruction and vanity of President of Croatian Orienteering Federation Mr. Karlo Gobec and Vice President Tomislav Kaniški is so great that it is impossible to continue normal development of each project. We kindly ask competitors for understanding and please have in mind the fact that our club has already invested significant resources in preparing material for mentioned projects, but Croatian Orienteering Federation does not want to provide us space for the normal preparation and organization of the named projects.

Best regards from Delnice,

Ivica Urbanc, president of OK "RIS" Delnice

 
Final programme
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 15:36

Final programme is done and can be found HERE. Maps are drawn and during next week we will publish preliminary course lenghts for Croatia open 2014. Second entry deadline is behind us and for now we can say that 450 runners will for sure come in July to spend o-holiday in Croatia.

Otherwise torrential rains across eastern Croatia have led to the worst flooding in decades, claiming the lives of people. Our club decided that for next year we would like to give our contribution to this region (eastern Slavonija) and already we can anounce that income from start fees of Croatia open 2014 will be invested into production of 2 new orienteering maps on Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian border which will be presented in 2015. We hope to present orienteering sport to local population after normalizing of weather conditions. Otherwise, most of other parts of Croatia have normal weather and Croatia open 2014 region was not affected by storm.
