Event descriptionIn 1974, the first edition of "10 days with Orienteering" (Friday to next Sunday) was held on the map "Řasy 1" in the forested area of Czech Canada with the highest peak "Řasy" (642 m above sea level) between the ponds "Dřevo" and "Kačležský". The event was organized by the orienteering club of Jindřichův Hradec and was later known as "Interkompas". In the 10-day format, it was organized until the late 1980s. In 2019 we will recall 45 years since the first "Interkompas". We do not dare (yet?) to prepare 10 days of organizes O-activities, despite all the technical and other endeavors that no one has ever dreamed of, 45 years ago. However, we have decided to organize at least three-day races in the same terrain. We hope that this opportunity to finish a summer holiday in South Bohemia or a club training camp in nearby terrains (Landštejn, EYOC 2011 terrains, ...) by the 3-day orienteering event attracts not only the witnesses of the original "Interkompas".
Terrain descriptionForest in the western part of a region called "Czech Canada", 450-640 m above sea level. There are varying types of vegetation in the competition area, medium to higher density of (smaller) paths, rugged terrain with dams and pits, watercourses and streams, sometimes with stones and smaller rocks. Part of the E2 area is situated in a former quarry (larger number of randomly placed boulders and other mining remains).
Training possibilitiesBetween Tuesday 27th August and Friday 30th August, two training courses (approx. 5 km, difficulty of about DH18) will be prepared in the area of EYOC 2011 (forest area between villages Hradiště, Sedlo, Příbraz, Nový Vojířov, less than 10 km from the event centre). Maps (only occasionally revised from 2011) will be available in the event centre.
