Bids to host ERC2015

To the attention of European members and observers,

Two bids have been received to host 12th European Rogaining Championships in 2015 - from Czech Republic and Ukraine. Take note of the proposed dates of the event, which are respectively 24-25 May 2015 (Ukraine) and 27-28 June 2015 (Czech Republic). Ukraine has previously hosted ERCs twice (2006 and 2010). Czech Republic has not hosted an ERC, but has hosted WRCs twice (2002 and 2012). However, both bids suggest areas and terrains which are different from previous championships hosted by these countries and also the organising groups are different. Please consult with your rogaining committees and make up your preference. A vote on these bids will be called on 6 January 2014.
