Hechtelse Duinen: map + results

Today a military orienteering event took place in Flanders. Jeroen van der Kleij won easily, he was nearly 5 minutes faster than Jan Oeyen (2nd) and Desmond Franssen (3rd). Some other strong military athletes ran race 3, because of an intern competition.

    is de zin beneden op de kaart een protestactie ofzo?

    you need to vote for Ben on each of days 1-5. The photographer with the most overall votes by 12.30pm on the 19th of December will be the winner.

    The map and the terrain are very great over there. But I have a question : aren't you "bored" of running / orienteering always in the same area. It must be the 54th orienteering races there in the last 5 years.

    Hopefully there won't be any big competitions there for a while (belgian champs and so on) because it won't be fair. Or none of flemish runners on the start line !!!

    Allez I have to admit that the terrain there is great.

    Belgian night champs (7 march) are already on (a part of) this map...

    So no flemish runners on the start line ?

    If it was in Nismes, I won't run...

    Not fair at all...

    Indeed, there are a lot of trainings, races, military events organised in that area... Maybe to much for a map for a championship. But on the other hand, I'm looking forward for Belgian night champs in this area... I can imagine champs which were held on a more poor terrain/map... And not all flemish runners live close to that area or compete there every time. Eg I have to travel a lot longer than someone from Liege to this aera.
    Our ABSO/BVOS rules now about fair-play/embargo:
    7.5 Aangesloten leden mogen zich niet meer begeven of gaan trainen op een
    wedstrijdgebied gedurende de 21 dagen voorafgaande aan de wedstrijd. Met de
    goedkeuring van de ABSO-BVOS controleur kan de organisator voor een langere
    periode een “embargo” afkondigen voor wedstrijden vermeld in art. 6.2.1. *french version below

    Maybe these rules are to 'soft'? And what with sprint-areas (Eg BK Sprint next year in Namur?
    If we want to change something about these rules, it is the moment now to work on this, as new rules are voted on 26/02/2009.

    7.5 Il est interdit à tout affilié de se promener ou de s’entraîner dans un futur terrain de
    compétition à partir de 21ième jour avant la date de la compétition. Pour les
    compétitions visées à l’article 6.2.1, l’organisateur peut fixer une période d’interdiction
    plus longue en décidant de mettre le terrain de compétition « sous embargo » après
    avis favorable du contrôleur ABSO-BVOS.

    Good discussion / debate about it. But only a club can ask for a change in sports rules. So who can do it ?

    About Sprint races I have the same comments too. I don't know yet if I'll run in Namur next year despite not living there anymore since septembre (Nismes). I don't know where it will be and don't know the town well (big city). Never mapped before neither.

    Anyway it's nice to talk about it.

    A proposal:

    There are a lot of situations in Belgium where mapdrawers compete on there favorite maps.
    And where championships were held on home ground.
    But what is fair and what is unfair...
