After a December filled with Christmas posts on this blog it is time for a New Year's post!
Another year has passed. From O-Ringens point of wiew, maybe 2015 was over already this summer when cars filled with orienteeres left Borås the 25th of July. Already at that time, many people started to look forward to O-Ringen in Sälen, even if it felt like an eternity until then. Now the year has finally come, when thounsands of orienteerers are going to fill the Sälen mountains again. The planning is in progress. The clubs in Dalarna are mustering strenght to fill all the posts needed for the arrangement. The maps are going to be updated, the arenas must be planned and built, the logistics have to be solved and the registrations shall be handled. At the same time we are praying for nice weather, as icing on the cake for the amazing week we have ahead of us in Sälen.
The past year we started this blog. Every week, with a few exceptions, have you been able to read posts from experienced elit orienteerers as well as youths and enthusiasts. They have told us about thier best O-Ringen memories, how they started with orienteering and a lot more. This will continue during this year, until week 30. Next week there is going to be a new theme: “How I train during the winter”. In this theme some exciting persons will give you tips and share their ideas about training.
Hope you’ll read it!
