This year's Beograd Open will start on March 31st, so there is no more risk of the postponement due to snowfall like last year. The competition area will be the same as last year, just expanded on plenty of depressions and contour curls in the new part we mapped in October. This time newly also with Zdeněk "Čenda" Sokolář.

The 2-day Beograd Open 2011 event on our map Babe-jug has been postponed! Important news from Dejan Avramović, the chief of the event: "... unfortunately, we have to postponed the competition due to the fact there is a lot of snow on the terrain. Yesterday we visited the terrain and measured 10 cm snow at the finish area on open land and 15-18 cm in the forest. ... Because of this, officialy competition will be postponed for two weeks, 19-20.3.2011." More info on the event website.
Surprising for me, as here in the south of Moravia we have almost forgot in the last months, what snow looks like.

2-day Beograd Open 2011 will be held already in 3 weeks on Babe-jug, rather a small map whose west part I was mapping in the autumn 2010. The main credit for the attractiveness of the terrain for orienteering belongs to the Romans, although it probably was not their goal. And the Roman procurator named Baebenius has responsibility for the name of the map, the hotel where the event centre will be, and nearby village - Babe (jug means south). There are tens of knolls and hundreds of depressions and pits of various sizes as remains of the ancient Roman mining activities (lead, silver?). In addition, a small number of paths, mostly well runable beech and oak forest and also some open areas in the eastern part, altitude 190-320m. O-delicasy!
