Me järjestäjätkin odotamme jo innostuneina JWOC/Fin5 -suunnistusviikkoa! Järjestelyt ovat hyvässä vauhdissa, mutta välillä meidänkin pitää vielä tyytyä talvimaisemissa hiihtelyyn ja retkiluisteluun :)

We are very motivated and highly prepared to organize JWOC/Fin5 -orienteering week 9.-16.7.2017 In Tampere. But these days we have to admire just winter scenes and collect power by skiing and iceskating :)
