BULLETIN 1

Welcome  to Borovets

Dear Orienteering Friends,

For me, as President of the Bulgarian Orienteering Federation, and for all Bulgarian orienteers, it is an honor, pleasant obligation, and responsibility to organize for the second time since the 1999 the Junior World Orienteering Championships inBulgaria. And this great event for the Orienteering world is going on in the year when the Bulgarian orienteers celebrate 60 years since the first O-race in our country. This time, the JWOC will be held near the capitalSofia, in theRilaMountains– at the magnificent international tourist center and ski resort of Borovets.

Bulgariaand the Bulgarian orienteers are proud to have co-founded the International Orienteering Federation in 1961, and to have contributed to the development of our favorite sport during these over 50 years.

I believe that JWOC 2014 will become a feast for the orienteering world. I hope that conducting the international competition for the Cup of Bulgaria the week before the JWOC will contribute to that. I am convinced the competition will satisfy your high demands as you experience the beauty of Bulgarian nature.

I hope to have the pleasure of greeting all young elite orienteers in 2014 with a warm “Welcome toBulgaria!”

 

Prof. Atanas Georgiev

President of the Bulgarian Orienteering Federation
