BEVILONGA 2007: ALMOST READY

After a week of problems skodeg-o is back on-line!

Next November Primiero will host one of the greatest and strangest night o-competition in the world, known as “Bevilonga“. The competition formula is very simple: it is a one-man relay composed by four little loops. The history of “Bevilonga” has begun several years ago when some important and notable athletes of U.S. Primiero and G.S. Pavione (the two o-club of the Primiero Valley) met and decided to organize a funny meeting with some orienteering.

At the end of every loop the runners have to “taste” (and drink) a big glass of the popular wine speciality known as “vin brulè” (it is an hot, sweet and spiced wine).

The board of directors of Skodeg-o is deciding right now when exactly “Bevilonga” will take place.

The competition area is a military top secret now, as the special map printing and the map-scale. Last year “Bevilonga” got success, almost 70 athletes came from every part of Italy (including famous international orienteers like <a href="http://www.micheletavernaro.it"Michele Tavernaro, Emiliano Corona, Daniele Pagliari and obviously Junior o-team).

Italian orienteers are waiting for this big competition which is often the last o-competition of the year (after the famous Venice O-Meeting). Further informations will be available very soon on our website www.skodeg-o.com and in our forum.
