At Kvarner bay challenge 2014 we expect no more than 200 competitors, so we’ve decided that this number is small enough to give a try to little experiment.

Kvarner bay challenge 2014 will be donation based. This means that it is completely up to you to decide how much you want to donate. You will have the possibility to donate before, during or after the races – as much as you believe it’s fair.

Why are we doing it this way? We really don’t like the hassle with charging start fees. Also, we’ve always felt orienteers are like a huge family with high fair play standards. We assume that most of them are well aware of what it takes to make a new race on completely new maps of very difficult terrain. We strongly believe that all participants will support the idea according to their financial abilities. That is the simplest and the most fair way.

Perhaps we are wrong and we are heading towards little financial disaster (the event WILL cost like any other of similar quality), but what the hell, at least we will know where we are and we’ll have good reason to switch back to normal next year ;).

On the other hand, if the model proves successful, we will definitely continue with it at KB Challenge 2015, but also some bigger events like Bubo Cup, Lipica Open or even OOcup might adopt the concept.

If you are unsure about your donation we suggest amount between 15 and 30 EUR for the 2 day race.
