Fin5 2017 on hoidettu loppuun tiedonsiirtoa myöten. Pohjalaisilla on 2018 hyvä ote ja uskomme että on tulossa hyvät kisat! Nauttikaa!
Samalla tälläkin sivulla on hyvä vielä kerran kiittää suunnistajia ja talkoolaisia. Te teitte hienon tapahtuman ja Olli oli odotetusti huipputyyppi.
Kiitokset

Kisat ovat ohi. Muistattehan tämän

Ehkä koneet eivät vielä edelleenmyynnissä PC-Räätälissä, mutta kannattaa kysellä. Josko tulospalvelussa olikin ongelmia, se ei kyllä näistä koneista johtunut!
