Saturday, 15 March 2014 11:27

We started to recieve a lot of emails regards where Croatia open 2014 will be placed... And the answer is here: LINK. So, for all of you who didn´t read our previous post this winter will be remembered for a long time in Gorski kotar region. For second time in almost 100 years we didn´t had almost any of snow here in the mountains! And than at the begining of February we had ice storm in which almost all electric cabels and pillars were destroyed, as well as the trees. In some areas more than 90% of forest were under influence of ice. We have checked our maps and decided that there will be some minor changes in programme of Croatia open 2014!

Note: final programme is defined in invitation section. (April 16 2014)

 
Getting ready for new maps?
Thursday, 20 February 2014 22:23

Well, it have been a while since we post anything to our web pages... We have been very busy with organization of our new winter event Liburnija Orienteering Meeting which will take place on island of Krk. More than 100 entries from 10 countries makes us very happy and we hope that one day it will be nice starter of orienteering season in this parts of Europe.

And what is new in Gorski kotar? Ooooh well, not much - just that ice storm made quite a big damage on most of our club maps and forest is now full of branches and fallen trees. What does that mean than for Croatia open? That means that we will need to make some changes in programme and that we will probably not have 3 days in Golubinjak area. Instead, we will check areas which were not under influence of storm and this areas are above 1000 m. In April mapmakers will arrive to Delnice again and will make maps in mountains on areas which we wanted to preserve for future project but it seems that we will be forced to use them this year.

Expect every day different type of terrain ranging from continentall, karst and even alpine type of terrain. We will publish more information soon... Untill than you can check out why Daniel Hubmann likes Croatia, what Emma Klingenberg said for running on beach and who thinks we have World class event in this TEASER.

 
Ready for WRE in March
Friday, 17 January 2014 15:33

We are ready for Liburnija orienteering meeting on island on Krk - we got confirmed with WRE status for first stage - long distance, and we are now looking forward to event! By opinion of course setter - Matjaž Štanfel (also incharged for courses on Croatia open since 2009) this long distance will definetly be among best and most interesting courses in 2014 world wide due to rather uniqe type of terrain where your orienteering skills will be put on test. As from today bulletin 1 is online and can be found HERE. Are you going to miss it?

 
Active again

Our web master placed all data on current www.croatiaopen.net addres and once again we are back on old domain. For 2015 expect new web pages for both Croatia open and Liburnija orienteering meeting unified.

And what are the news? Well, mybe most important is that tourist agency Aurea agreed to help us with finding accommodation so it should be easier now to find suitable accommodation on island of Krk during Croatia open. We expect mapmakers to visit Croatia soon so new maps will be drawn in 2014 (check out competition area).

Temporary moving to new address
Thursday, 21 November 2013 15:06

Croatia open will temporarely move to new web address: http://fildelnice.wix.com/croatia-open-2014.

Croatiaopen.net will still remain online and all information about Croatia open 2014 will be also published on our "old addess" but, we have in plan of publishing new concept of web pages for Croatia open 2015 where we will try to unify all our club events on one domain. Further vision of developing our web-pages is to have simple pages with all indormations necessary for orienteers regards event which would also be visually attractive.

And what is else new? Well, slowly we are heading into winter which should be full of studying (exam time is coming ;) ) and trainings for our club members (if they will not be too lazy). We will work on Liburnija orienteering meeting which should be intersting start of o-season but you can read more about that on our new pages :). Also, we hope you are training hard and that your shape will be the best in late July next year so you could try new maps in Croatia while orienteering in full speed - no mistake style.
