OA is seeking nominations from elite orienteers to compete at the European Orienteering Championships and World Cup in Estonia from 7 to 13 May 2006. There is a full program of events including sprint, middle, classic and relay. Each country may nominate up to 6 men and 6 women, and have up to 2 relay teams.

Selection will be based on the ‘past form’ criteria as set out in the selection criteria for WOC 2006.

Important things to note are:

  • unfortunately OA’s budget mean no funding is available and competitors will be responsible for meeting all their own costs, including entry fees, travel and accommodation.
  • each country must nominate a manager. In Australia’s case, this will be one of the competitors. Please indicate if you are willing to undertake this task.
  • Even if fewer than 6 nominations are received, this is no guarantee of selection. OA will only select elite orienteers with the capacity to be competitive at a World Cup level.

Although country nominations officially closed on February 1st, we have received special dispensation to nominate a team by 28 February. Potential competitors should should indicate their interest to Paul Liggins on 0408 417 335 or by 20 February.
