Note: ETOC 2020 has been moved to 14-18 July 2020. The FAQ will be updated shortly. This is the old FAQ merely for reference:
Q: Who is your course setter?
A: We have three! In order for them to be able to concentrate on their work, we divided the job between three experienced course setters: Åke Jacobson (OK 77) for PreO 2 and Relay, Martti Inkinen (Rajamäen Rykmentti) for PreO 1, and Roope Näsi (Alahärmän Kisa) for TempO.
Q: Is the Event Centre Kisakallion Urheiluopisto (Sports Institute) suitable for wheelchairs?
A: It is more than suitable! They have extensive experience of hosting events in wheelchair sports. There is accessible accommodation, and of course, the restaurant and the meeting rooms are accessible. Kisakallio has, amongst others, hosted Wheelchair Curling World Championship qualifications.
Q: Will there be public events during ETOC 2020?
A: Yes, the public can take part in public events every competition day. They are on the ETOC 2020 courses. Of course, these are not official competitions, as the public can, if they want to, find out right answers before start. Programme.
Q: Are there any competitions in Finland the weekend before ETOC 2020?
A: Yes, there will be 2-3 competitions 16-17 May close to ETOC tempo terrain (not organised by us). Also there will be several foot orienteering events around the ETOC week.
You can find hem here. The list will be updated during spring!
Q: ISSprOM has been used since January 2019. Bulletin 2 says that all maps have been drawn in ISSOM 2007. Why?
A: Because all the maps were already drawn in January 2019 and all courses were set on those maps. We considered this carefully and could not afford to convert them to the new norm, because that would have basically meant re-mapping most of the terrains. We simply did not want to jeopardise the quality of the maps.
Q: Can I reach the Event Centre Kisakallio by public transport?
A: You can take a bus to Lohja and taxi from there (~15 km). But you can also rent a car at the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport: https://www.finavia.fi/en/airports/helsinki-airport/access/car-rental
Our transport package for the week costs 180 EUR/person.
Q: Which results service do you use?
A: We will use SportIdent, ANT and preoresultat.se 🇸🇪
Q: Will you publish the results in the competition centre on TV or monitor or do we need to bring our own tablets and laptops?
A: We will have the results on monitors and screens!
Q: Will there be a banquet on Sunday night?
We will organise a small social event at the TempO Competition Centre after the race. It is mainly for people to be able to mingle and eat some snacks.
