At 08:30 every day the competition is opened officially. It is a grey Tuesday morning with a very light rain falling from the sky. Perfect weather for orienteering! Edvin Waltersson picks up his trumpet and begins to play for the exited orienteers at the arena.
After the trumpet, Berit Martinsson who represent Finspång town have a speech.
– Today we double the population of Finspång, says Berit.
Berit welcomes all orienteers from all over the world and the it’s time for Klara Ljunggren to sing the Swedish national anthem.
We organizers hope you will have a fantastic day out in the forest!
