So, the 22nd edition of OOcup is now history. Certainly there has been lots of work before and during the races, but nevertheless this time organizing felt very much like a team building. As Bača, one of the organizers, said, this has been one of the most pleasant editions for the organizers so far. Even yesterday’s night small celebration (Meda, thanks for the great excuse to have it!) seemed to have worked against the rain and I guess we now have a new anti storm protocol . Big thanks to all of the organizers for the great spirit and well done job!
Then, of course, OOcup has absolutely no point without you, the participants. Big thanks to you for coming to OOcup over and over again. Thanks for the trust and thanks for the many positive words after the race. We hope that you enjoyed the 5 days of difficult orienteering and the relaxed atmosphere of the event.
See you next year in France . Very likely in a much larger form but with the same OOcup spirit!
Today it seems we’ll have a nice sunny stage, however for tomorrow things do not look so good at the moment. Some heavy storms are forecasted for Sunday, especially in the morning hours. Recent heavy windfalls around Čepovan, Predmeja and some other parts of Trnovo plateau make us cautious.
Please follow the website for the latest information about the stage 5. Postponement of the first start is possible, as well as complete cancellation of the stage. We certainly hope it will not be necessary, but windfalls possibility might be too dangerous to take the risk.
Unfortunately we have to inform you that the roads Most na Soči – Čepovan and Čepovan – Lokve are closed due to removal of the consequences of the heavy thunderstorm from yesterday. As we have mentioned in previous post Čepovan village (4km from Lokve) and its closest forest surroundings were heavily damaged yesterday. In Lokve village and forests used for OOcup we have not noticed any damage so far.
At the moment the only possible way to Lokve seems to be via Nova Gorica, which means a substantial detour for anyone coming from the north (Tolmin-Most na Soči area). For current information about road situation we recommend you to use the PROMET.SI website, or the PHONE APP with the same information.
Please keep following our website for the latest information. At the moment the calming down situation seems good for the next days and hopefully we will not be forced to cancel any stages.
Last night/morning some heavy storms passed Slovenia and made quite some damage. One of the villages heavily hit by storm was Čepovan, just 4km away from Lokve. The weather for the next 3 days should be OK and hopefully we can have sthe stages as planned. On weekend some more heavy storms are possible according to the current weather forecast.
Please keep following our website for latest information.
