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.

Two days till second entry deadline
Tuesday, 13 May 2014 13:53

There are only 2 days untill second entry deadline! Map on Petehovac mountain is now done and there is only revision of map Delnice left so everything could be ready for this year. Also, since mapmakers made more than planned we will organise 2 days on Petehovac (middle distance therefore will not be in Golubinjak but on Petehovac!). This is the second time that we will change position of stages and we apologise for that. On the other hand you will have 4 out of 5 stages on maps never used for orienteering before with all stages close to competition centre in Delnice! And if you think that Petehovac will not be so interesting as Golubinjak - think again and look at small map sample on the left ;).

First map sample of Petehovac
Tuesday, 29 April 2014 16:47

Here it is, after many, many years of waiting for it - PETEHOVAC! Mapmakers are working even on rain and slowly we are getting better insight into terrain which will be - great! Petehovac will give Croatia open a new terrain and unlike of typicall karst terrains around Delnice it will give you new perspective of Croatian mountains. It is also very nice to see that there are only a few paths which will make orienteering even more interesting but also it seems that we will not have problems with details for "hiding" control points - as you can see from this small sample, expect a lot of knolls and small hills on gentle slopes.

Also have in mind that next entry deadline is soon - 15th May.
