Occassional thoughts about orienteering

1984 (?) in AustriaBack in 1984 I ran this course just outside of Hartberg, Austria.
I like how they started us at the top of the mountain and the course wound around and down - keeping the total climb reasonable. I only remember a few of the legs, but I seem to recall being pretty satisfied with my race. I wasn't a very good orienteer and avoiding big booms was quite satisfying.
The event was called something like "European Junior Meeting" (though it was open to those of us from non-European countries, too). If I remember correctly, I was the only non-European at the event.

I remember quite well the European Junior Match, it was incredible hot and missed (even if I was there) to punch the 23rd control. Truls Nygård won our course and Annka Viilo women race.
I was running the same course and I remember it was extremely hot. In the end of the race I was completely dehydrated and in the final part of the course I was also biten by a bee...! The party after the race was funny (a sort of a rave party in an hangar of a dismissed airport). can you recall it ?Post a Comment
