This sounds grand - but anyone can enter if you are older than 35 years and this year over 4000 orienteers arrived in Denmark for the competition. The oldest class this year (with competitors) was M95!

It is all most the end of June, school is out and we are all enjoying the hot and sunny weather (yes it is hot & sunny in Denmark as well). This eNews has been a bit delayed as we had virtually no internet signal for a few days.
