With just five days to go, we are on track to achieve a new higher level than 2016. So far, 78 countries and almost 1600 WOD events have registered for this year’s WOD on Wednesday, May 24th. The trend shows that there looks to be more than 80 countries and over 2000 events during the second year’s WOD. Most excitingly, so far, 18 non-IOF Members have registered for at least one WOD event and with the knowledge that several IOF member countries have not yet made their registration, it’s very possible the number of countries can reach to 90.
Right now, it’s “rush hour” at www.worldorienteeeringday.com and preparations to implement WOD 2017 worldwide are in full action.
If you have not yet decided, it is soon time to register a WOD event or ensure that you are a participant in this manifestation of orienteering. In this Newsletter, you can read about Blair Trewin, the President of Orienteering Australia, and his commitment to WOD. You can also find out the new name of the Rabbit, as the naming competition is finished.
