IOF collecting compasses for developing orienteering nations

As part of the International Orienteering Federation’s 50 year celebrations, the IOF is collecting compasses to be sent to developing orienteering countries all over the world.

To succeed in the IOF’s aim of collecting at least 500 compasses, they need your help: if you are going to attend the World Orienteering Championships or the O’Festival ERDF Savoie Grand Revard in France either as a competitor or a spectator, please bring your old compasses with you to the event. There will be compass collection stations at both events. Or if you know someone who is going to France in August, send your spare compasses with him/her to help the orienteers in the younger orienteering nations. You can write a greeting – or at least the name of your home country – on a piece of paper to go with the compass.

Anyone coming to the COCs in Whitehorse, can give their compass to a member of the national team to take over to France.In addition to compasses, also pin punches and control flags are much appreciated equipment in the new nations.

If you want to help, but are not going to France, you can send your contribution directly to the IOF Secretariat: IOF, Radiokatu 20, 00093 SLU, Finland.
